Enjoy the luxury of an afternoon tea in Shropshire at the divine Fishmore Hall in Ludlow! A recently converted country house this stunning restaurant hotel and bar offers sublime cuisine and their afternoon tea (with champagne if you’re feeling celebratory) is the perfect way to sample the mouth-watering fare on offer at this little oasis foodie paradise.
Set in the heart of rural Shropshire on the outskirts of the spiritual home of all things culinary – Ludlow – afternoon tea at Fishmore is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted before. A selection of open sandwiches await; elegant refined and classic combinations such as beef and horseradish smoked salmon and cream cheese or the perennial favourite tuna mayonnaise all get the star treatment and emerge on the platter resembling a Michelin-starred styling.
A selection of chefs sweet treats and finger sandwiches appear which are utterly moreish and impossible to resist are served with a range of teas and coffees. We have to say at Fishmore in Shropshire the key aspect to an afternoon tea those fresh scones with fruit compote and clotted cream would steal the show at any other establishment but here they simply complement everything else on offer. What greater testament to the quality of the food here in Ludlow?
If the weather is nice taking afternoon tea on the terrace is the perfect way to admire the Shropshire countryside and with sweeping views over the local landscape there’s plenty to catch your eye. For when the weather turns the Orangery and lounge area both offer comfortable and sumptuous Georgian surroundings in which to enjoy your high tea. If you feel like adding a bit of sparkle to the occasion opt for our tea and champagne experience to receive a glass of bubbly as well.
This is the ideal afternoon treat for food lovers and the staff with their attentive nature will give you that ‘red carpet treatment’ throughout. Admittedly this isn’t an experience for those watching their waistlines – but afternoon tea never is – and the food-based fun offered around Ludlow is aimed at gourmet gurus rather than calorie-counters.
But if your real passion is for incredible food in beautiful surroundings with a lush extravagant atmosphere then afternoon tea in Shropshire is a must-do activity. Take advantage of Ludlow’s culinary heritage and sample the delights this exquisite restaurant and hotel has to offer.
