Festive Afternoon Tea at the Maids Head Hotel
Festive Afternoon Tea at the Maids Head Hotel has always been a popular time of the year. Bursting with seasonal flavours, it can be enjoyed from the comfort of the armchairs in the lounge, as well as in the historic WinePress Restaurant. Served daily, afternoon tea can be booked between 2.00 and 4.00pm.
Anthony Boldyreff, our new Pastry Chef, has not disappointed this Christmas. He has created a menu with mouth-watering festive flavours.
Traditionally served on the tiered cake stands, guests can enjoy a relaxing afternoon with friends and family. Each of the tiers has a blend of delicacies, each complementing the next and championing local produce.
Which of the finger sandwiches on tier three will be your favourite, or will it be the Staithe Smokehouse salmon choux bun. On tier two there are more savouries from the Maids Head signature sausage roll to a duck and hoisin straw, along with buttermilk scones. Tier three is where you can feast your eyes on a selection of four bite size cakes. Which one will get your vote? Currently the team can not agree between the hazelnut profiterole or the chocolate Tonka layer cake, sprinkled with gold dust.
Tea is served with lashings of loose leaf tea from Coffee Express from North Walsham, or coffee should you prefer.
The highly talented Anthony joins our Brigade under Oliver Sanders, from the Dial House in Reepham. He has previously trained in France; travelled around the world on a yacht as a private chef; as well as working under Marcus Wareing at the Michelin-starred Berkeley Hotel in London. Anthony said “As a Pastry Chef you are always evolving and learning new techniques. Like music, trends and tastes change and it keeps it fresh and interesting.” We are very excited to have him join the Brigade and to give him the opportunity to develop our afternoon tea service.
Festive Afternoon Tea at the Maids Head Hotel is priced at £26 per person. If you wish to celebrate in style then add a glass of Prosecco for just an additional £4.
