Bancroft Cruisers – “We’re famous for them. We love serving them…so join a sightseeing cruise on The Rita Ellen, sit back and relax, and as you watch the sights go by enjoy a delicious Cream Tea or an Ophelia Afternoon Tea, both served on vintage cake stands. Our fresh scones are served with clotted cream, jam and a lovely pot of tea or freshly-brewed coffee. Special occasion? Why not enjoy a glass of chilled of Prosecco for an additional £4. Please let us know if you’re celebrating an anniversary, birthday or other special day and we’ll make sure you’re looked after (we might embarrass you and sing happy Birthday unless you tell us not to!)”
“Afternoon tea became ‘the thing to do’ and during the 1800s women of standing and birth would change into formal gowns, gloves and hats and take their tea in the drawing room between four and five o’clock – a ceremony that is a common sight in many period dramas. We serve a variety of cream teas, full afternoon teas and, for a touch of luxury, sparkling afternoon teas with a glass of fizz. Take yourself back in time and spend an afternoon taking tea without a care in the world!” A great place for afternoon tea Stratford upon Avon.
