Afternoon Tea At The Hickstead Hotel

Hello lovelies,

For my birthday earlier this year, James kindly bought me an 'afternoon tea for two' voucher at The Hickstead Hotel in West Sussex. After saving it for ages to try & find the right day & time to go, I finally booked it for the end of August on Bank Holiday Monday.

My Mum & I drove down to the hotel, only a short 30 minute drive from where we live & were booked in for tea at 2:30pm.

The hotel itself is beautiful & right in the heart of the countryside.

Our voucher entitled us to an array of finger sandwiches, cakes, scones with cream and jam as well as a selection of teas and coffees. Just look at this spread!

We started off with tea & coffee, before diving into the sandwiches!

This meringue / strawberry concoction was my favourite. It was one of the most delicious things I've ever tasted!

We also got to sample some macaroons, which were strawberry flavoured with a lemon centre. They were amazing too! Nothing worse than too much lemon, but this was subtle & refreshing. 

We went for a short walk around the hotel after we had finished. (I'm surprised we could still walk as we ate so much!)

You can actually see the South Downs on a clear day from the tea rooms, so we took a few snaps with the view in the background.

I'd highly recommend this hotel for afternoon tea. The food & service was amazing, I really couldn't fault it from the moment we arrived, till moment we walked out the door.

I would actually love to go & stay there, it would be the perfect place in the Winter time, surrounded by snow with a log fire.

Have you ever been to this hotel or one similar for afternoon tea? : )
