We are a family ran French Patisserie offering high end Afternoon Teas in a beautiful and relaxed setting.
The quintessentially British tradition of Afternoon Tea is said to have been invented in 1840 by Anna Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford. Quite often the Duchess would become hungry around 4 o’clock and would have a long wait for dinner to be served at 8pm. She began to request bread & butter, tea and cakes to be brought to her room late afternoon. This became a regular habit and she began to invite her friends over to join her. Thus the experience of ‘Afternoon Tea’ was born.
Almondine’s Afternoon Tea is lovingly handmade daily by our team of pastry chefs. We like to keep to tradition and serve an assortment of finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream & preserves, and the piece de resistance – seasonal patisserie miniatures. The colourful array of cakes are served on our fine, duck-egg blue china and copious amounts of tea and coffee can be enjoyed.
Raise a toast to tradition and add a chilled glass of our beautiful L’Extra Langlois Brut or if there is cause for celebration why not indulge in a bottle of Laurent-Perrier La Cuvèe Champagne.
Excellent. Beautiful Afternoon Tea. Servhce was excrllent too.
Lovely afternoon tea for me and my mum. Very welcoming and the food was amazing!
Birthday treat for my friend. My first visit and was first class. Staff were great and food was amazing. Thank you Almondine.
All cakes and scones are delicious, can’t recommend the afternoon tea enough. Never feel rushed and great service
The afternoon was amazing, no complaints whatsoever, we should have been there for mothers day but covid ruined that , however it was definitely worth the wait, staff were so attentive also, we couldn't fault it .
Myself and my daughter enjoyed another beautiful afternoon tea at Almondine. Everything faultless, the scones and cakes are just exceptional - so pretty and so tasty. This is how afternoon tea should be - beautiful crockery and the most gorgeous delicate cutlery. Its such a treat to come here. Thank you for everything you do!
The staff were lovely, and the range of goodies in the afternoon tea were unbelievable. We will definitely be back!
Not just 5 star in all categories, also 10 out of 10 all round.
We received a voucher for afternoon tea as a gift. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The sandwiches and scones were normal but the cakes were of a higher standed than most afternoon teas which we often. I would say the price is higher than most, excepting Gleneagles and MacLeod House at Trump. We enjoyed our gift.
It was my first afternoon tea at Almondie and everything was amazing. Super friendly staff and the baked goods were to die for! I would highly recommend this lovely experience x
The tea itself was lovely although bread was a bit dry as if been sitting for a while and feel its rather expensive for what it was. I just felt that you were rushed because as soon as the plate was empty it was away. We had to ask for more tea as refill wasnt offerered, We were sat right at the door so felt exposed to everyone coming into shop.
The afternoon tea is the most beautiful I've ever eaten and the flavours equal the presentation! It feels like a real treat and unlike others I've experienced is perfectly portioned so you leave full but not uncomfortable/without having eaten everything. I'll definitely be back.

The server on Thursday 6th Feb was lovely. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for looking after us for our afternoon tea. It was interesting to hear about the fascinating fancies from the baker herself. Everything was delicious and we bought some extra macarons to take home. They did not last long! I will recommend the Almondine to everyone. You will not be disappointed. Thank you again.
