In Review: Afternoon Tea At The Parsonage Grill
If you’re in search for the best place to have Afternoon Tea in Oxford, you can’t get better than the Parsonage Grill at the Old Parsonage. It’s our absolute favourite place for Afternoon Tea in the city.
The Old Parsonage Hotel is a beautiful 17th century building in the heart of Oxford, which combines original charm and character with all the luxury available in an independently owned five star hotel.
The stylish dining room is a cosy and opulent setting for afternoon tea, with its wonderful array of original portraits and roaring log fire, perfect for a chilly winter’s day. However the front terrace makes a perfect retreat in the summer from the hustle and bustle of Oxford.
Beneath the gorgeous gnarly wisteria, at tables laid with cool white linen and silverware, we escaped the heat of a summer afternoon in Oxford.
Very High Tea & Celebration Tea are a feast of freshly prepared sandwiches, including British classics such as cucumber, smoked salmon & ham and mustard, totally delicious home-made scones with strawberry jam & clotted cream, & indulgent cakes including raspberry bakewell, rich chocolate cake, choux buns, super light and fluffy coffee cake and silky smooth creme brulee.
It really is a perfect way to celebrate a special occasions, and the best way to experience a great British tradition in the heart of Oxford.
