The return of Afternoon Tea
12 noon – 4pm
Indulge your inner child and adventure into the mouth-watering world of chocolate with our enchanting afternoon tea inspired by York’s well renowned history with chocolate. York once known as ‘the chocolate city’ dating back almost 300 years, at its peak, over 14,000 people were employed in the city’s famous chocolate factories – including Rowntree’s site at Haxby Road, which opened in 1890, and was so big it had its own fire brigade, and Terry’s Chocolate Works factory near York Racecourse, which opened in 1926.
Inspired by the history, Executive Chef Aaron Craig has created and developed a truly magical indulgence of mouth-watering flavours using some well-known classic inspiration of the nation’s favourite chocolates.
