Afternoon Tea

Now that Spring has finally arrived, what better time to announce the launch of our new Afternoon Tea menu, available from the 3rd April. 

Afternoon Tea; a tradition as old as time. Originating in the 1840's, this classic, culinary experience has once again become one of the most popular types of dining of recent years. However, gone are the days of cucumber sandwiches & pots of English Breakfast Tea, with new, exciting menus readily available. As always, here at The Cricket Inn we strive to execute high quality products made from only the finest, locally sourced ingredients, allowing tradition to meet with innovation. Our afternoon tea menu combines all the classics, with the infamous Cricket Inn twists & fabulous drinks packages - an experience not to be missed,
