COLLECTION – how it works

We are limiting the amount of bookings we can take in our Arbor restaurant but we are aware that people are excited to sample our afternoon tea and two rosette dining again, so we have set up a collection.  Ideal for Mum-to-be who’s shielding to celebrate her baby shower at home.

Afternoon Tea Our gorgeous afternoon tea is now available for collection when booked within 24 hours of ordering.  Please see the pictures below for an idea of how it will look for one person.  It is priced at our usual price of £18.50 per person.  Book a group afternoon tea for your “Bubble of 6” too and check out our drinks packages too. Just follow these steps:

  1. Check out our COLLECTION menu below
  2. Book your day and time of collection on our booking system here
  3. You will receive an email for pre-orders – choose your afternoon tea dietary requirement and add on a drinks package too at this point.
  4. If you are booking for a group you will receive a link to send to your family and friends for them to choose too

  8. If you are self isolating then let us know and we will carry your food to the car for you.  You can even pop the boot and we will put it in there for you.



COLLECTION – Afternoon Tea


Because of our commitment to and passion for using fresh, seasonal ingredients, we have deliberately left parts of the menu a little open to interpretation. Our pastry chef makes all his pastries to order, changing things quite frequently to keep up with the seasons. If you would like more information on what we can do for your stay-at-home baby shower or your hen afternoon tea then do ask.  We can cater for all diets but do require 24 hours notice.

We therefore only use 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified tea for our Golden Blend Dorset Tea™. This means that the workers and farmers who carefully grow and select the leaves in our tea can also enjoy a good quality of life, while protecting their natural environment which is as important to us as it is to them.”
