Our classic cream tea with freshly baked scones…

Afternoon Tea

Traditional Devon Cream Teas are an institution here at Mill End Hotel, served from 12pm until 5pm every day (3 to 5 on Sundays) in our attractive gardens or one of our lounges. Our NEW Afternoon Teas are a very special treat, available every day for 2 to 55 people, but must be pre-booked.

Afternoon Tea can also be taken in our Summer House, perfect for groups of 4 to 8 guests.  A great all weather option to enjoy our lovely garden.  Usually it is an extra £20, but free of charge if you are ordering our Champagne Afternoon Tea for 6-8 guests.  Must be pre-booked direct with the hotel on 01647 432282.

We are very easy to get to and the perfect stop-off for your day out on Dartmoor. You’ll find us on the A382 just outside the pretty Dartmoor village of Chagford. The River Teign runs alongside our gardens, and Castle Drogo is just across the valley.

Afternoon Tea

Jam First or Cream First?

For those with a serious interest in Cream Teas, the burning debate remains, of course – what goes on your scone first – the cream or the jam?

If you speak to the good folk of Cornwall they will probably tell you that they apply a liberal layer of butter, then jam, then cream. But here in Devon we (mostly) subscribe to the “cream then jam” school of thought.

Interestingly, London’s Ritz Hotel, purveyors of fine cream teas to the rich and famous, joins us in that opinion.

But truth be told, we don’t think it matters that much. Warm home-made scones, a generous dollop of jam, and a spoonful of local Clotted Cream make the perfect afternoon treat, in whatever order you choose to apply them!

For Afternoon Teas and Cream Teas we can accommodate groups – ask us about special discounts for 10 or more guests.
