There’s nothing better than spending the time with friends indulging in finger sandwiches, scones, cakes and pastries. We have selected a few of our favourite places to enjoy an afternoon tea in Nottinghamshire.

This venue is the highlight for delicious homemade cakes, scones and light lunches. During your visit to this relaxing afternoon tea haven, you can indulge in one of their three options. You can enjoy the usual three-tiered cake stand including sandwiches, scones and moreish cakes, or you can mix it up with a glass of Prosecco – oh la la!

Thea Caffea

Home of all thing’s tea is Thea Caffea, nestled downLow Pavement in the city centre. The family-run business can only be described as an oasis of calm and elegance where you can enjoy great food and drink with friends.
