Relax and indulge in a fine afternoon tea at Laura Ashley The Manor in Elstree. The manor stands on the site of a Tudor house dating back to 1540 and has undergone a full and beautiful refurbishment in recent years. Tuck into afternoon tea in the hotel’s striking lounge in the heart of the LA bar, offering great views over London. This area is the social hub of the hotel, making it the perfect spot to indulge in a decadent afternoon tea in elegant surroundings. Enjoy a spread of finger and open sandwiches, warm scones with clotted cream and jam and a selection of homemade pastries and cakes. Wash the treats down with a choice of loose leaf tea, coffee or herbal tea. Rich design, traditional values and fine dining in one.
