The Connaught Hotel and Spa is the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon tea in Bournemouth, whether you’re catching up with a few friends or celebrating something special as a large group.
Delicately crafted by our talented team of award-winning 2 AA Rosette chefs, we serve traditional afternoon tea, and at 48 hours’ notice we also offer vegan afternoon tea, vegetarian afternoon tea and gluten-free afternoon tea.
In the summer months, bask in the sun on your choice of beautiful garden terraces. And in the winter, an afternoon tea by the open fire in our Drawing Room is the perfect way to indulge.
Please note – from 1st-24th December we will be serving Festive Afternoon Tea rather than our traditional afternoon tea.
Treat someone special with an afternoon tea gift voucher or for those looking to truly indulge we also offer spa day gift vouchers which include a day of pampering plus an afternoon tea or two course lunch.
Booking isn’t essential, but we recommend making a reservation in advance so that we can guarantee availability.
We like to use the freshest ingredients, so the cakes and treats that we serve change regularly depending on the deliveries that we have received throughout the week.
All Connaught afternoon tea is available as a vegan afternoon tea, vegetarian afternoon tea and gluten-free afternoon tea at 48 hours’ notice.
£19.50 per person

Christmas at The Connaught Hotel and Spa Bournemouth is one of the highlights of the year, and our Festive Afternoon Tea doesn’t disappoint. Think traditional afternoon tea but with a Christmas twist.
Booking is essential. We’re also available for private bookings for 8-100 guests.
Had the best afternoon tea this lunch time. I had the gluten free which without doubt was the best I have ever had. The regular one my friend had looked equally as good. Both with fresh from the oven scones. The staff were friendly and efficient. Would highly recommend.

Treat Mum to a Mother’s Day afternoon tea in Bournemouth in our boutique hotel, it’s the perfect way to spend quality time together. What could be better than enjoying a delicious meal together at a relaxed pace, in beautiful surroundings.
Afternoon tea is a really popular way to mark this wonderful occasion and is much easier to organise than a regular lunch.
