Celebrate Easter and family time with the most delightful Afternoon Tea in Essex
This is at a secretly tucked-away barn in Essex countryside gardens. You'll need to book early as THE SECRET SCONERY (run by The English Cream Tea Company) tends to sell out. We're not open for many dates each year because the rest of the time this charming barn building is where the Scone Gnomes create the goodies and hampers that customers order. The barn can’t be seen from any roads, so we’ll send you directions once you book. The Secret Sconery is not available as an every-day Tea Room alas but just for special events (such as Mothering Sunday, Father's Day etc) and for private bookings.

PLUS have the fun and intriguing experience of Blending Your Own Tea!
(Yes, you can have traditional English Breakfast or Earl Grey but if you feel more adventurous,
we have a Tea Blending Station where you can literally blend your own teas!) -
or there's Caffetiere Coffee available if you prefer (and other drinks available).
NB: Once you book, we'll send you directions on how to find us in White Roding, Essex.
No refunds possible alas, but you could gift your booked places to others and just let us know their names and requirements.
Also, let us know about SPECIAL DIETARY requirements - ring 01279 876661 or email.
At £32 per head (discount for children), we are offering 2 sittings starting at 2.00pm and 4.45pm.
Please note that if you purchase and can no longer attend, we can't offer a refund but your booked places are entirely transferrable to other people of your choosing (just let us know, particularly if they have different dietary requests). Alternatively, if you give us over 14 days' notice, we can sometimes transfer your booking to another later event date at The Secret Sconery.
