English Afternoon Tea

One of our most treasured amenities, in which all Inn guests are welcome to partake, is the complementary English Afternoon Tea, served from 4:00pm until 5:00pm every day in The Fearrington House Restaurant. This service is exclusive to Inn guests, so you can be sure your tea service will be relaxing and catered to you.

Choose from any number of Harney & Sons Teas from our Tea Menu placed at your table. From the classic Earl Grey to herbal Raspberry or Verveine, there are plenty of caffeinated and decaffeinated options to select. We even have our own blends, Fearrington Afternoon Tea and Fearrington Breakfast Tea. If you enjoy these and want to take them home, you’ll also find them for sale at The Goat.

Why not choose more than one tea? My favorite combination is half Rooibos, a red tea from South Africa, and half Hot Cinnamon Spice, a low-caffeine blend of black teas. There is no wrong combination, so try a different tea each day!

The best part of our Afternoon Tea service is the delectable morsels served shortly after you take your seat. From unique finger sandwiches to freshly made bite-sized pastries, there is something for every palate to enjoy and share. The macaroons are simply divine, and the flavors change week to week. There is always something new to discover! My personal favorite is the fresh baked scones. Made in-house every morning, these sweet treats are unparalleled in taste and texture. Paired with clotted cream, lemon curd or raspberry jam, there is no wrong way to enjoy our scones and treats with Afternoon Tea.
