Afternoon tea in the Picture Gallery

Afternoon tea at Paxton house is not one you forget too quickly.

Last month we had an afternoon of tea, prosecco and delicious food in our Picture Gallery with the Steinway playing in the background.  The food was a delightful array of miniature meringues, scones with jam and cream, finger sandwiches, quiche and of course the homemade cakes, all made by the Chefs in the tearoom.


The room provides a beautiful ambience with the amazing paintings, beautiful fireplace and the tables decorated to perfection.


After such a wonderful afternoon in September the team here at Paxton decided another one was a must, so afternoon teas at Paxton will be a regular occurrence in our Picture Gallery.  Imagine the roaring fire and the Steinway playing in the background on a cold winters afternoon, check out our events page for the upcoming Afternoon tea.
