If you’re looking for affordable afternoon tea, you’ll be delighted to find that the Victoria Hall Afternoon Tea at Osborne House is satisfying for your tummy and your purse!
Afternoon tea is served daily in Victoria Hall, which can be found towards the end of your self-guided tour. The hall had once been Queen Victoria’s private chapel.
For £17 per person or £32 for two, you can enjoy:
- egg mayonnaise sandwiches
- ham sandwiches
- cucumber sandwiches
- a macaron
- a chocolate and orange torte
- a chocolate eclair
- a shortbread round
- an almond and berry tart
- two mini scones
- Cornish clotted cream
- Tiptree jam
- loose-leaf tea (or non-refillable coffee)
For an additional £5 per person (£6 total for two), you can add a glass of Prosseco.
Although I was very hungry during and after the tour, I found the portions more than my stomach had room for (which is saying a lot as I usually consume quite a bit). The price was very good for the amount of food, so it was certainly worth dining inside. The only thing that surprised me was the lack of fine bone china but it didn’t keep me from enjoying afternoon tea!
