The Drawing Room - traditional afternoon tea

The Drawing Room is located in the main Mansion House and enjoys stunning views over the hotel’s terraces and the Berkshire countryside. A quintessentially English afternoon tea is served twice a day with sandwiches, scones and classic pastries with a twist, freshly-prepared by the pastry team at Coworth Park.

The tea menu includes over 20 varieties, including Coworth Park’s own Meadow Blend, which contains lavender picked from the hotel’s grounds. A special gluten-free afternoon tea is also available.

Guests can enjoy light meals all day while relaxing by the Drawing Room’s open fireplaces. A resident singer and pianist entertain with contemporary jazz on our baby grand in the evenings, and a harpist plays over afternoon tea at the weekends. The Drawing Room Conservatory is an ideal place for small gatherings and can be booked for exclusive use for five star private functions.

The luxury sofas, chairs, tables, chandeliers and artwork are custom-made, mostly by British craftsmen and artists. Elegant fireplaces at either end contain a mosaic of decorative Wedgwood and Spode porcelain fragments. There’s also an eye-catching centre table incorporating a sculpture of three swans.
