Step back in time and treat yourself to a luxurious Afternoon Tea at Lainston House. Indulge in the great British tradition at this elegant country house hotel that is steeped in history dating back to the 17th century.

Afternoon Tea can be served in either the Drawing Room which provides a sophisticated space for diners to enjoy their meal or The Avenue Restaurant, which has been awarded 3 AA Rosettes for its quality service. Weather permitting, the Lainston House also possesses outdoor seating, which is a peaceful oasis boasting beautiful views of the natural landscape.

Their Afternoon Tea menu features classic hallmarks of the British ritual such as sandwiches, scones and sweet treats, prioritising freshly made produce. If you are feeling extra indulgent, there is the option to upgrade to include a glass of Nyetimber Sparkling Wine.

This grand venue is situated just outside of Winchester, a 10-minute drive away from Central Winchester.
