Afternoon tea in matlock
Come and try our fresh homemade delicacies
Looking for Afternoon Tea in Matlock? Come and stay at Sheriff Lodge and try my homemade delicacies. I have been cake decorating for umpteen years and it was a bit of an obsession before moving to Matlock. I missed it so much I wanted to use those skills to provide something for my guests and so I turned to making Afternoon Teas, which I really enjoy. A lot of the recipes I use are tried and tested infallible methods from my grandmother.
The Afternoon Teas are very popular and a superb indulgence if you are celebrating a special occasion, maybe treating your mum or wife or just fancy a treat – why not?
To make them a little different to others and also for those who may have a slightly more savoury palate, I also do a velouté, which is a thickened soup. I ask guests who have had Afternoon Teas before what it is they remember about their favourite one. They don’t always remember a particular one but a couple of guests have mentioned that the normal, sandwiches, scones (jam then cream or cream then jam, don’t go there !) and patisseries are a bit same ol’, same ol’, so I’ve tried to make mine a little different.
Don’t worry if you don’t finish all your goodies, I’m more than happy to pack up anything you might not finish and keep in the fridge for you – maybe for a packed snack to take with you on your travels in and around Matlock. The Afternoon Teas are served on family vintage china and tea set, with a linen tablecloth and served in the Dining Room. It’s really quite special.
