Devonshire afternoon tea

Traditionally the quintessential English treat created in the 19th century for the peckish Duchess Of Bedford, afternoon tea is still enjoyed today throughout the UK and beyond. Here at The Carlton, we like to keep things fresh, our afternoon tea offers a classic Devonshire element with the inclusion of a freshly made Devon Cream Tea along with other delicious homemade treats; freshly cut, filled breads, fresh cakes and mini desserts all prepared from scratch using ingredients from our local larder. Here, you can always enjoy gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options so no one needs to miss out.

Enjoy an afternoon graze, whatever the occasion

Whether you’re celebrating an occasion or just treating yourself, afternoon tea is the perfect choice for a relaxing afternoon graze with a few drinks and good company, of course. Add a glass of Prosecco or champagne for added sparkle!

Choice of menu & location to suit your preference

Afternoon Tea can be enjoyed inside in a Brasserie, Lounge Bar, Restaurant or Café setting or outside on a sun terrace, patio, decked or garden area making it fully adaptable to your place of preference. With a choice of menu to suit your taste and dietary requirements, you really can make it something very special. At The Carlton, you are guaranteed some of the best local ingredients, including fresh fish from the market caught from the day boats at Appledore, Exmoor’s finest meat and salad from the great Field of Braunton. Menus adapt to the seasons, but there’s always something new to excite your tastebuds. Discover more
