Indulge your taste buds with one of York's finest luxury afternoon tea experiences, from the comfort of our beautifully restored rail carriage—the Countess of York.

Afternoon tea

Countess of York reopens on weekends from 28 November 2020.

Our winter afternoon tea menu features an optional upgrade to a festive glass of mulled wine, freshly cut finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones served with clotted cream and preserves, and elegant homemade cakes and desserts. We can also provide a menu for children.

Our drinks menu includes a wide selection of loose-leaf teas and a champagne upgrade for that special celebration.

We can cater for a wide range of dietary requirements including gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free. Please give us 24 hours’ notice of any dietary requirements. If you have any queries regarding dietary requirements please contact us ahead of your booking.
