On Sunday 10th November from 2.30pm, Iscoyd Park, the award-winning private country house wedding and events venue, will be hosting the first in a series of traditional Afternoon Teas, prepared by Michelin-trained chef, David Cox. Tickets for the event are £30 per person, which includes a glass of Iscoyd Park Champagne and Iscoyd’s one-of-a-kind afternoon tea.
Afternoon tea… it’s a quintessentially British tradition and extremely popular with us tea and cake loving Brits. In fact, the popularity has been on the rise over the last few years, with bookings increasing by a huge 54% from 2016 – 2018, according to OpenTable.
However, with the rise in popularity comes the rise in risk of an ‘average afternoon tea’. Award-winning venue, Iscoyd Park, feel that the tradition needs to be preserved and therefore are on a mission to serve afternoon tea befitting of its rich heritage in the luxurious setting of the 18th-century, Grade II*-listed Georgian house.
With their Michelin trained team including Head Chef, David Cox and newly appointed Development Chef, Gareth Jones, Iscoyd Park has elevated the traditional afternoon tea offering, only using the highest quality ingredients and painstakingly crafting every element. Served in the cosiness of the Library or the Drawing Room, guests can choose from a selection of delicious savouries including smoked salmon on rye with crushed avocado and chopped egg to pork and black pudding sausage roll served with brown sauce chutney.
Once the savoury course has been devoured, guests can look forward to a myriad of pastries including a selection of freshly baked scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam. These will be served alongside the Head Chef’s signature pastries. From Raspberry and white chocolate choux buns and classic warm cherry Bakewell to salted caramel and peanut snickers, there is something to satisfy every sweet craving.
Director of Iscoyd Park, Phil Godsal, comments: “We really wanted to do the tradition of afternoon tea justice, but the Iscoyd Park way. The kitchen team has put together an incredible British afternoon tea menu – one like you have never tasted before.
Each element has been made from scratch using the highest quality, local ingredients; whether it’s our famed scones with homemade strawberry jam or our sausage roll using puff pastry, which is a two-day process and encases Welsh sausage meat, which has been minced twice and served with our pickled walnut puree. Now we just can’t wait for guests to come and enjoy the afternoon.”
