Our classic cream tea with freshly baked scones…

Traditional Devon Cream Teas are an institution here at Mill End, served from 12pm until 4pm every day in our attractive gardens and lounges.

Our Afternoon Teas are a fantastic way to catapult your post-walk rest into a new level of luxury. For £25 per person, you can enjoy an ever-evolving selection of seasonal baked goods, the finest sandwiches this side of the Teign River and, of course, a scone with jam and Devon cream.

Afternoon Tea is available every day for 1 to 55 people and can be accompanied by champagne or prosecco when requested.

Prosecco Afternoon Tea – £31 per person

Champagne Afternoon Tea – £33.50 per person

Booking is essential for our lovely afternoon teas, however not essential for any of our light lunches or cream teas.

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.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience – please contact voucher supplier to seek a refund.

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.
