Afternoon Tea in Newmarket: Celebrate National Tea Day!


There’s nothing quite like a good old-fashioned afternoon tea and we are extremely excited about the upcoming National Tea Day on 21st April! To celebrate this most English of traditions, we wanted to tell you about some of our favourite places to enjoy afternoon tea in Newmarket and surrounding areas!


Squires Restaurant

Squires Restaurant is located at Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa on Bury Road in Newmarket and has a wide variety of options available. Their Light Cream Tea and Light Afternoon Tea options are perfect for those with a smaller appetite, whereas their Full Afternoon Tea and Champagne Afternoon Tea options are for those that want to go the whole hog!

There is even the option of a Gentlemen’s Afternoon Tea for those who are looking for something a little more savoury!

The menu is available every day from 2:30pm-5:30pm.

The Pantry

The Pantry is a little oasis of country charm and delicious food in the hustle and bustle of the busy Newmarket town centre. It has built a strong reputation as a fantastic place for breakfast, brunch and lunch, and its afternoon tea is no exception!

Their classic afternoon tea is made using locally-sourced ingredients and served on two or three-tier stands. Treats include sandwiches with Bottisham smoked salmon, Suffolk ham or Hawkesdon cheese, along with homemade scones, local jams and cakes.

The menu is available six days a week from 2:30am-5:00pm.
