We offer High Tea with Cats 4 afternoons a week from Friday through till Monday.
What is included?
Our menu changes seasonally, so flavours of foods are subject to change. However, all High Teas include:
- A selection of savoury treats - for example, filled baguettini, savoury scones and savoury tarts
- Scones with jam and clotted cream and a selection of cakes, bakes and biscuits.
- your choice of unlimited tea, coffee and soft drinks

Which dietary needs can we cater for?
We can provide High Teas to meet the following dietary needs:
Our Omnivores High Tea option includes items that contain meat, fish, dairy, gluten, nuts - everything.
This High Tea option is free of meat and meat-derived products, but does contain fish and fish-derived products.
Everything in this high tea is meat and fish-free and free of products derived from meat or fish (gelatine etc).
Our Dairy-Free High Tea is the same as our Vegan high tea. We can not offer a non-vegan Dairy-Free high tea at this time.
Everything in our vegan high tea is animal-product free. Please also select this option if you require dairy-free foods.
Everything on this High Tea is gluten-free and suitable for vegetarians.
Everything in our GF High tea is made without gluten.
Please note the High Tea is a set menu and we can not accept requests for specific dishes to be included that we don't have on our menu.
Please use the drop-down list provided during the booking process to specify your dietary needs in advance.
My Dietary Needs aren't listed here
If your dietary needs are not met by the above options, it's highly unlikely we can meet your needs for the High Tea with Cats set menu and you may need to book instead for Entry Cats and a Cuppa and order from our a la carte menu.
Email us before you book to make sure we can accommodate your needs.
