Mercure Oxford Hawkwell House Hotel is helping guests celebrate the Coronation in style with a royal-themed Afternoon Tea fit for a King.
The Iffley-based boutique hotel is celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III and the Queen Consort by adding some royal decadence to its popular Afternoon Tea menu to mark the historic occasion.
Residents and guests will be able to tuck into specially created Pimm’s Royale and an array of classic British treats, including finger sandwiches, scones, patisseries, cake and teas.
The Coronation-themed celebratory treat was inspired by King Charles’ favourite aromatic tea Darjeeling, which is included on the menu. A special Coronation cake will form the centrepiece of all afternoon teas between 01 and 14 May.
Visitors can enjoy the regally-themed treat for £20.23 per person or Pimm’s Royale for an extra dash of luxury at £30.00.
Served in the cosy lounge bar or on the elegant heated terrace overlooking the tranquil gardens, guests will be spoilt for choice on where to enjoy their tea and raise a glass to celebrate our new King.
Nick Jefford, Hawkwell House General Manager, said: “The Coronation will be a time of joy and celebration for the whole country and enjoying a thoroughly British Royal Afternoon Tea is a lovely way to mark the occasion.
“Simon, our Head Chef, has created a bespoke Royal Afternoon Tea with some wonderful special touches that people can enjoy in our relaxed home-from-home setting. We’re looking forward to welcoming Oxfordshire residents to join us and celebrate this unique occasion in style.”
The 77-bed hotel recently underwent a stunning £3.5 million refurbishment to transform it into a stylish, boutique venue complete with a restaurant, lounge bar, all-weather terrace and three versatile meeting rooms.
Hawkwell House is located a short walk from Iffley Lock on the River Thames and St Mary The Virgin Church Hawkwell House. It is just three miles from Oxford rail station and is close to Oxford’s southern bypass road.
Afternoon tea, dining reservations and hotel stays can be made through the hotel’s website.
