Afternoon Tea

Corona Virus Update Afternoon Tea:

Gliffaes is planning to re-open on the 12th August 2020. However, due to social distancing requirements we will NOT be serving afternoon tea for the foreseeable future except to residents. We are very sad to have to do this but will keep the situation under review.

But I have got a gift voucher for afternoon tea, what shall I do?

Any voucher you have that is due to expire in 2020 will now run until the end of 2021. If you wish to come after we open on the 12th August and we can’t honour your tea voucher you can use it in exchange towards lunch or dinner or a stay.

The famous Gliffaes Afternoon tea Buffet is served everyday from 4.00 – 5.30pm. 

The buffet style afternoon tea at Gliffaes has become something of an institution in this corner of South Wales over the last seventy years.

People will travel from far and wide to come and help themselves from our selection of savoury sandwiches, scones with cream and jam and homemade cakes. Take a seat in the sitting room next to the fire in winter or on the terrace in the summer and go and help yourself to whatever takes your fancy on the buffet table, then come back for more when you wish. Afternoon tea costs £21.50 a head or £10.50 for children under 10. Booking is required please. We can cater for gluten free diets with prior notice.

If you would like to come early and take a walk around the grounds and along the river then please do.

Larger Parties

Afternoon tea is great occasion for an informal get together and we are proud of our reputation as somewhere people like to come celebrate over a cup of tea, although we are happy to provide something stronger if you like. Please call us to discuss how we can help you. We may be able to offer you a table or tables in the dining room for you all to sit around. For larger parties of 10 or more we will ask for a deposit. If you would like a private room for your party there will be a room hire fee of £100 in addition to the charge per head.

Request a table for afternoon tea here.
