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. If the afternoon tea itself isn’t enough of a draw, taking in the magnificent surroundings of the Orangery is an experience in itself.
£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. To find out more or to make a booking please contact the team on 01325 729999 or email
