With prices starting from £16.50 per person, you can spend the afternoon enjoying a variety of scones and sandwiches in the setting of this beautiful refurbished Edwardian building - where exceptional service is always on the menu.

The characterful Hotel du Vin is ideally located just a short walk from the exciting city centre of Newcastle-upon-Tyne - ideal if you can’t resist a glass of bubbly, and your afternoon tea turns into an evening of drinks. If you decide to extend your stay, there are a range of luxurious holiday cottages in Northumberland - perfect for turning your afternoon into a weekend to remember.
