A much-loved tale by adults and children alike, Luxury Family Hotels are bringing the magic of Matilda to life through the British ritual of Afternoon Tea. Launching on 26th April 2022, The Matilda Afternoon Tea experience gives families around the UK the opportunity to marvel in the iconic foodie moments of this classic story by Roald Dahl.
The experience will be available for guests to enjoy at all five of the Luxury Family Hotels in some of England's finest locations: Fowey Hall in South Cornwall, Moonfleet Manor on the Jurassic Coast, New Park Manor in the New Forest, The Ickworth near Bury-st-Edmunds and Woolley Grange near Bath.
Paying homage to everyone's favourite tiny heroine, the Matilda Afternoon Tea features nods to the children’s tale in the form of delicious treats that will be sure to make guests smile. Families of all ages can share in the surprise and delight of the tale together, enjoying the scrumptious and theatrical creations crafted by the Luxury Family Hotels culinary team.
Adults can tuck into the Crunchem Hall sandwich selection, including honey & truffle butter and chalk stream smoked trout with cream cheese & beetroot, followed by delightful sweet treats that will evoke memorable moments from Matilda's terrific story.
Indulge in Matilda & Miss Honey’s After School Cream Tea, consisting of plain & raisin scones with strawberry jam & clotted cream, and enjoy your very own slice of Bruce Bogtrotter’s chocolate cake. The menu even features a glass of Newt Juice – a delicious blend of apple juice, banana, spinach and mango.
For the little ones, a Children’s Afternoon Tea menu is available featuring a carefully curated selection of sandwiches and savouries, followed by delicious sweet treats. Join Miss Honey in her garden for vegetable crudités served with hummus, and dig in to a melt-in-the-mouth blueberry newt cookie!
