Afternoon Tea

There is always a good reason to come and enjoy afternoon tea at Rockliffe Hall.

Traditional or with a twist, delicious sandwiches and elegant sweet treats are the perfect pairing for your afternoon brew. Special occasions may call for the addition of a chilled glass of champagne or a Hendrick’s G & T cocktail. Rockliffe Hall pride themselves on finding ways to serve this ultimate English tradition with a modern and original twist. But this isn’t just any old afternoon tea. Dainty sandwiches (crust-less of course!) scones, cakes and pastries washed down with specially-selected and highly-acclaimed ‘Jing’ teas which come in a wide range of varieties.
If the afternoon tea itself isn’t enough of a draw, taking in the magnificent surroundings of the Old Hall lounges is an experience in itself. Choose from the light and airy Morning Room, the dark and decadent Drawing Room or the traditional Old Hall Arches. £1 from each Afternoon Tea sold is donated to the MFC Foundation which uses the passion and power of the Football Club brand to raise aspirations and improve life chances of young people and adults across Teesside.
