Join us at Butler’s Retreat, or at the Larder in Wanstead, for a delicious afternoon tea treat with Prosecco.
After being welcomed to the table with a glass of Prosecco Spumante (adults only), your afternoon tea will feature a selection of rough-cut sandwiches on artisan breads and a variety of home-made cakes. We use all natural ingredients, and of course there’ll be freshly baked scones with clotted cream and jam. We’ll serve our top quality British Brew tea, or any alternative tea from our lists, or other hot drinks if preferred.
There are no table cloths or fancy stands, and we don’t believe in dainty finger sandwiches here, so if you’re looking for a hotel-style ‘afternoon tea experience’ this might not be for you. We don’t offer a menu or choices, but if there’s something you don’t eat or prefer to avoid just mention it in the order notes and we’ll take care of it.
Vegetarian or Halal? We’ve got you, just let us know in the ‘Dietary Requirements’ box. Please note we DO NOT offer GF, dairy-free or Vegan afternoon tea. If one of your party has these requirements, they can join the group and order items from our regular menu on the day, so book for one less person and just drop us a line to ask for an additional place at the table.
Ordering for kids? We’ll swap our rustic artisan breads for a more child-friendly wholemeal loaf with simple fillings, we know they can be fussy and far more interested in the cakes! As for cakes the little ones get exactly the same as you. If you want the children to have the same sandwiches as the adults, please book them as adults. If ordering for one adult plus children, please choose the number of children first, otherwise you won’t see the options. If ordering for larger numbers than you can select, just add multiple afternoon teas to your basket.
IMPORTANT: We aim to serve at 2.30pm and the cafes close at 4.30pm. If you wish to come a little later, that’s no problem, but we will need to close at 4.30pm. Also note that our website will let you choose a time slot, so please indicate your preferred booking time in the order notes. The site will also let you choose collection or delivery, however we do not offer delivery on this dine-in product so please choose ‘collection’ to avoid a delivery charge being added. By booking this product we will automatically reserve you a table.
Any refunds that we need to make due to wrong bookings will have admin fees deducted. If you do wish to have an afternoon tea delivered, please click back on the ‘treats’ section of the site and choose the Larder Afternoon Tea box.
