You’ll be able to choose a finger buffet or our popular afternoon tea baby shower package. Prepared by our talented team of award-winning 2 AA Rosette chefs.

Our friendly team are very experienced with hosting baby showers, so you can rest assured that your day will run as smoothly and stress-free as possible. Leaving you all to celebrate and share in the excitement of a new bundle of joy!
Choose our ‘baby shower afternoon tea’ or ‘finger buffet baby shower’ package, then add any little extras.
What’s a party without cake?
Afternoon tea baby showers are one of the most popular ways of celebrating this wonderful occasion. You’ll find it much simpler to organise an afternoon tea rather than arranging a meal where everyone orders different food.
If you have over 30 guests we’ll serve your afternoon tea as a buffet style. For smaller gatherings we can serve on cake stands or as a buffet, it’s entirely up to you.

Our location also means that there are great public transport links for your guests arriving by train or bus.
We offer FREE parking at the hotel, although this can be busy at peak times so cannot be guaranteed. However, there is FREE residential parking in all the surrounding roads. And we’re lucky to have a long stay car park just a five minute walk away.
