Slow Time, Together

In this busy world, afternoon tea is the antidote. Slow down and appreciate a moment, together. 

A glass of bubbly for the special occasion. A warming pot of the finest loose leaf after a blustery sea walk. Homemade scones, fresh strawberries, confiture and Devon cream are the order of the day. 

Catch up and chit-chat. Gaze seaward to the horizon as your mind drifts. Let the figures fall from the clock. Indulge in the iconic Afternoon Tea by the Sea at The Riviera.
