Tucked secretly away in Essex countryside gardens is the THE SECRET SCONERY run by The English Cream Tea Company (it's where the Scone Gnomes prepare all the goodies and hampers to send out). This charming barn building can’t be seen from any roads, so we’ll send you directions once you book. It won't be available as an every-day Tea Room but will be open for bookings for specific events such as this!
As we're not normally open to the world, we thought we'd invite you to book for some occasional delicious events throughout the year - giving you a chance to blend your own teas, see where the Scone Gnomes work - and enjoy the BEST afternoon tea treats with Prosecco and bottomless teapots for your sitting. This Valentine's Day Afternoon Tea will be super-special for your celebration and enjoyment.
