About this event
Celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at the 15th century Swan at Lavenham Hotel and Spa with a special ‘Fit for a Queen’ Afternoon Tea.
To mark the occasion, The Swan’s Pastry Folk have worked incredibly hard to deliver an afternoon tea worthy of a royal, treating you to some of the Monarch's favourite sweet and savoury delights.
Tempting treats will be presented course-by-course on bespoke Royal Worcester fine bone china in either the elegant Gallery restaurant, cosy lounge or flower-filled courtyard garden. The menu even includes a mini Victoria sponge to take away and continue your celebrations at home.
Available from Saturday, 21 May until Sunday 17 July, the indulgent menu begins with delicate finger sandwiches followed by plain and sultana scones, topped with clotted cream and jam.
The selection of specially created ‘royal’ cakes includes a Queen Elizabeth cake, ‘Dubonnet cocktail’ macaroon, cherry and vanilla Battenburg and a chocolate biscuit cake all paired with unlimited refills of your choice of Novus teas or coffee.
Served from 12noon until 4pm, Monday to Saturday and between 2.30pm and 4pm on Sundays, the ‘Fit for a Queen’ Jubilee Afternoon Tea is priced at £25 per person including your personal treat to take home, or £39.50 with an added glass of Champagne to toast Her Majesty!

About the Venue
The Swan at Lavenham Hotel & Spa is set in the beautiful, medieval village of Lavenham, approx. 15 minutes' drive from Bury St. Edmunds.
The village is full of historic timber-framed buildings and often described as 'the best preserved medieval village in England'. With its fine dining Gallery restaurant, The Swan has 45 en-suite bedrooms, 5 Bubble Rated luxury spa, two restaurants (Gallery and Brasserie 487), three meeting/function rooms, garden, cosy lounges and the famous Airmen's Bar, full of WW2 signatures and memorabilia.
RAF Lavenham was the home of the 487th Bombardment Group, 8th USAAF during WW2 and is popular with visitors, who are tracing 'The Friendly Invasion' of US forces in the East of England, during the Second World War.
Lavenham is often used as a film and TV location, famous for being featured in the 1980s TV series 'Lovejoy' and more recently, as the backdrop for a Harry Potter movie.
