Afternoon Tea - Goldstone Hall, Shropshire

Afternoon Tea Goldstone Hall Shropshire
Sandwiches, cake and tea perfect!
What a delightful Afternoon Tea my sister and I enjoyed last week at Goldstone Hall near Market Drayton, Shropshire.  

Goldstone Hall - Afternoon Tea Menu

Sandwiches
Roast beef and horseradish
Ham and grain mustard
Farmhouse Mature Cheddar and Goldstone tomato chutney

Homemade fruit scone with mixed berry jam
and Devonshire clotted cream

Chocolate eclair

Victoria sponge

I was pleasantly surprised by the array of teas available, I selected Citric Lemon which is similar to Earl Grey with oil of bergamot. My sister chose Keemun Black China a delicate flavour and a light body, both were delightfully refreshing.

The sandwiches were presented on a slate, the bread light and fresh. The ham in the sandwiches was really tasty, and sourced locally from Buttercross Farm (which also do some amazing sausages too). There was just the right balance of cakes not too much or over rich, the chocolate eclair was perfectly dinky!

Afternoon Tea at Goldstone Hall cost £12.50 - fabulous value for money and with some lovely extra touches. Such as the ribbon tied napkins, our plates were cleared once we had finished the sandwiches and we're given new plates to tuck into to the cakes. 
Goldstone Hall gardens
We even had a brief stroll around the gardens, which were looking very tidy and manicured. They had a fabulous outside area that would make a most enjoyable afternoon tea in the Summer overlooking the gardens. They have some planned openings for the National Gardening Scheme during the year. 


Goldstone Hall is definitely a place a will visit again and certainly epitomises Shropshire's Best.
