This delightful country-style hotel in the heart of the Constantia Valley is arguably one of the loveliest spots to enjoy an indulgent high tea, no matter the time of year. In winter, while away the afternoon beside the fire in the elegant indoor lounge; in spring and early autumn, sit in the light and airy glassed-in rooms sipping in the views on the gardens and mountains beyond; and in summer, relax on the sunny terrace under the 300-year-old oak tree, while enjoying an assortment of hand-crafted treats.
The tantalising tea menu is a mix of traditional and modern items, including smoked salmon and chive blinis, roasted vegetable and goat’s cheese tarts, grass-fed beef and peppadew sosaties, and a charcuterie-inspired spread of hummus, lavash, artisanal cheese and cured hams. Those with a sweet tooth will be in their element with cupcakes, fresh fruit pavlovas, chocolate, pecan-nut wedges and cream, carrot and chocolate cakes, key-lime pie and chocolate eclairs. And, of course, what would high tea be without finger sandwiches, which come in an assortment of roast beef, horseradish and pickled mustard; cucumber, dill and cream cheese; and coronation chicken.
The feast, naturally, is accompanied by a selection of classic and unique herbal teas, iced teas, single-origin coffees and hot chocolate. Or, why not take the experience up a notch, and enjoy a glass of bubbly from the Martini bar? The perfect ending to a sublime afternoon at this acclaimed slice of old-school glamour in the heart of Constantia.
