High Tea and Clotted Cream - afternoon tea in Pembrokeshire
Want to know where the best cream teas are in Pembrokeshire?
We asked our friends on Facebook and Twitter where they go for a cream tea fix.
Here’s your run-down of Pembrokeshire’s favourite places to take afternoon tea this summer:
The Grove, Narberth
For the most decadent of high tea experiences go to the The Grove. Between the hours of 3pm-5pm they serve high tea on the terrace, overlooking the garden. You will enjoy freshly cut sandwiches and tea served on a two tier slate stand, together with homemade buttery scones and Llawhaden clotted cream. YUM!
St Brides Spa Hotel, Saundersfoot
Equally delicious is the St Brides Spa Hotel offering, from the panoramic gallery overlooking Saundersfoot Harbour. From 2pm finger sandwiches, pastries, scones and champagne are all waiting for you.
Slebech Park, Haverfordwest
Boasting magnificent views and walks, Slebech Park Estate provides the perfect tranquil setting to enjoy one of the many choices of the afternoon tea: the lighter cream tea, a full afternoon tea or go all out for the Victorian high tea. You'll need that walk!
The Boathouse Cafe, Stackpole Quay
Karen bakes sweet and savoury scones at The Boathouse Cafe, along with her infamous large teacakes! Some of the biggest wedges of homemade cakes are waiting to tempt you, making the walk out to Barafundle Bay and back all the more worthwhile.
The Bothy Tearoom, Colby Woodland Garden
Sam and Penny have been quietly creating mountains of delicious cakes at Colby Woodland Garden’s Bothy Tearoom for the last ten years. Well known with locals this is a great place to visit for a sweet treat, with acres of woodland on hand to walk up an appetitive.
Bramley’s Tearoom, St Florence
People travel from miles around to sample Liz and Natalie’s signature fruit pies, treacle tarts and scones at Bramley’s Tearoom. You’ll find great coffee and speciality teas, along with delicious cakes, pastries and gluten-free options.
Ye Olde Worlde Café, Bosherston
Locally known as ‘Aunt Vi’s’ this quaint tearoom in Bosherston village makes tea the old fashion way - loose-leaf in a large teapot - to accompany your cream tea or toasted teacake. Sunny garden tables are the ones to go for, so you can watch the world walk by. Space for kids to run and dogs on leads welcome.
The Shed, Porthgain
While the Shed at Porthgain is well known for its fish menu by night, by day it turns out an impressive catch of homemade cakes and scones for passing Coast Path walkers. One to look our for.
Quayside Tearoom, Lawrenny
Situated right on the water at Lawrenny Quay this grassy suntrap is the perfect place to explore the freshly baked cakes coming out of the Quayside Tearoom. Although not a traditional full cream tea, they offer delicious selection of cakes with tea or coffee. Four-tiered strawberry and cream cake anyone?
