The Royal Crescent Hotel Afternoon Tea

One of only two Grade I listed hotels in the United Kingdom, the Royal Crescent is located in the centre of John Wood's world famous Georgian architectural masterpiece, Bath.

We made a special visit to the Royal Crescent Hotel for two reasons, our director’s birthday and secondly, to swing by and review one of the most talked about locations of all time…

Not only was the location absolutely breath taking, but the Afternoon Tea they serve is equally as phenomenal. Served in the magnificent secret gardens or in the comfy lounge complete with a warm roaring fire, their deliciously decadent Afternoon Tea includes a variety of scrumptious sandwiches, home-made cakes and scones along with your choice of tea or coffee.

The service was flawless, each server was equipped with the remarkable knowledge of each blend of tea, which one compliments which course and why. You’ll be blown away with satisfaction, kindness and full tummies, especially since you can have more than one course of each tier.

They offer three extensive main tea selections: The Duke of York (mostly savoury), The Elizabeth Montagu (half sweet/half savoury) and the RC250 (the hotel celebrated its 250th birthday in 2017), the classic sweet afternoon tea. As well as finger sandwiches, scones and pastries, there are some delicious, and intriguing, versions of Bath delicacies to sample, including a Bath chap beignet (pig's cheek rillette in a breadcrumbed ball), and a Bath bun with a sugar cube inside, and cinnamon butter to spread on it.

The whole experience with The Royal Crescent Hotel was just incredible, whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or a Sunday afternoon I recommend you experience it for yourselves – you wont be disappointed.
