A traditional afternoon tea is perfect for any event; parties, anniversaries, wedding receptions and funeral gatherings. We cater throughout Dorset and freshly prepare all your sandwiches and fillings on the day of your event, to ensure the quality your guests deserve – along with our selected teas and coffees.

A selection of sandwiches on white and whole grain bread filled with honey roast ham with English mustard, Topside beef with Horseradish,  Smoked salmon with cream cheese or vintage cheddar and caramelised onion chutney. These are just some great ideas of filling you can have. Homemade Fruit scones with cream and strawberry jam. We have a delicious range of homemade cakes from fruit cake to Victoria sponge. We home bake everything and serve it on our vintage afternoon tea fine bone china. You can’t beat the style and sophistication associated with a traditional afternoon tea. Afternoon tea’s are delicious if served with a glass of something sparkly or fruity Pimms.

Some delicious ideas…

  • Cream cheese and dill wrapped in smoked salmon
  • Cucumber with whipped feta, sun blushed tomatoes and basil
  • Chicken Goujons with sweet chilli dip

Canapés are always a very popular choice for a variety of business networking events, they always give a great impression and provide flexibility for you to entertain your guests whilst they network and build business relationships.

Canapés at a wedding or party allow family and friends to mingle and catch up in an informal way and can be a great precursor to the main course!

Our canapés are freshly prepared and individually decorated and served on a range of platters appropriate for your event.
