    • Afternoon Tea

      Also served in Espelette is the Connaught’s afternoon tea. Traditional finger sandwiches, fresh scones and mouth-watering pastries, it’s little wonder it’s been awarded membership by the British Tea Council.  

      We are delighted to have been awarded the very coveted afternoon tea 'Award of Excellence' from the Tea Guild for 2013.
