High Tea at The Cliff Hotel

Cliff Hotel

To celebrate my wife’s birthday, we booked high tea at The Cliff Hotel in Gorleston-on-Sea in Norfolk.  We have stayed at this hotel before, and it is a favoured venue for us, so it was a perfect place to have a little indulgent luxury.

We arrived a bit early, but the staff were very accommodating, and moved our reservation up.  We ate on the terrace overlooking the sea, and it made a pleasant back drop with a clear sunny sky, and the beach and sea below us.

The tea was well brewed, and came in a generous sized pot.  It was accompanied by finger sandwiches (salmon and cream cheese, ham and cheese, prawn with mayonnaise,  and cheese and pickle).  A portion of sharp cress was provided that could be used to enhance the sandwiches as well.  Two warm scones, with clotted cream and jam were next.  This was followed by an assortment of macaroons, mini cream cakes, and a chocolate and an apple tart. The portions were sufficient to leave us both satisfied.

Tea Service

The service was very friendly and attentive, and it made for a lovely afternoon together.

For those considering a high tea on the Norfolk coast, this is an excellent choice. It does require an advanced booking, and a £10 deposit but it is well worth it.
