About Almondine

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 beautifully chilled Freixenet Prosecco or if there is cause for celebration why not indulge in a bottle of Moet & Chandon Ice NV Champagne.

Beautiful afternoon tea as always. Service great and love the new premises. Disappointed to miss out on the bubbles, but this of course is not the fault of Almondine, but the inept Scottish government (a Scotch egg is seen as a substantial meal but an afternoon tea is not?! I couldn’t eat another thing after that! :)) Anyway, a lovely afternoon was had and we’ll be back soon. Thank you.

Almondine is always top of my list when choosing where to go for afternoon tea. Since lockdown I have had several deliveries sent to family members who were absolutely delighted with all the delicious food. Yesterday myself and my daughter treated my aunt to a wonderful festive afternoon tea in your lovely new premises and as always the delights on offer were amazing. Many thanks to all at Almondine for a wonderful afternoon.

Lovely place for a different experience of an afternoon tea. Sandwiches and scone just a treat while the macaroons and French patisserie and the desserts were an absolute treat.

The afternoon tea was lovely and the new venue is nice although I found it to be a bit more exposed than the last venue and we were right beside the door. The food was great but a few more sandwiches would just be the cherry on top!

This was our first time visiting Almondine, a treat to ourselves during our week off in November. Afternoon tea was absolutely delicious, great selection of fresh sandwiches, superb scones with clotted cream and the most amazing selection of cakes/mini deserts. The flavours were just out of this world. Would definitely recommend that you pay this place a visit.
