On Sunday 12th June 2016 we are excited to be presenting a very special Afternoon Tea here at The Hinds Head, Bray.

The Afternoon Tea is in celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday and Head Chef János Veres has been working with the recipe development team to come up with an offering of familiar and surprising treats for the eyes and taste buds.

This very special event would make a lovely gift for someone special or to say thanks or happy birthday. Perhaps there’s an anniversary coming up that you’d like to celebrate or you just really fancy an afternoon treat and celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday is reason enough. Afternoon Tea at The Hinds Head will be a popular event, therefore we would recommend booking early to avoid disappointment. Our only other recommendation? Come hungry, as Chef is feeling very generous with this delicious offering! Call our Reservations team on 01628 626 151 to make your booking for seating at 3pm or 3:30pm.

The cost is £49.50 per person and our tempting selection will consist of;

Update, Friday 20th May: The Chefs, gathering for afternoon tea. With a difference. Below is a peek behind the scenes here today, with the Fat Duck Experimental Kitchen development team and Hinds Head kitchen team, tasting 18 teas showcased by the team from Jing.

The purpose was that of matching the individual teas to elements of the newly-created Afternoon Tea offering for our event on the 12th June – tables still available but book quickly to avoid disappointment. Call 01628 626 151 or email reservations@hindsheadbray.com

Eight excellent teas were eventually chosen that compliment the flavours of the sweet or savoury item that will be a recommended pairing. We look forward to offering these exquisite fine teas alongside our gorgeous Afternoon Tea treats on June 12th.

Here are some images from this little secret tea party – all for your tasting delight, if you’re coming to our Afternoon Tea event..

TEA TASTING 1

Jing teas, brewed by experts to ensure they were tasted at their very best by the tasting team at The Hinds Head. Every tea had its own timer for brewing and pouring perfection:

Tea Tasting 2

The adorable tiny little cups for the tea tasting session – not what we’ll be serving your tea in when you come to experience our Afternoon Tea event!

Tea Tasting 3

Tea leaves settling after the boiled water has been poured in. A gorgeous swirl of slowing falling tea leaves, changing the colour of the water to the most fantastic shades – in all there were 18 teas presented and none were alike..
