Vegan Afternoon Tea in the New Forest

Careys Manor Hotel launches vegan afternoon tea

 

careys afternoon teaAfternoon Tea is one of the Great British institutions and no wonder – all those delicious sandwiches, fruit-laden slices, yummy scones and melt-in-the-mouth pastries. But it’s an institution in which many people feel they can’t indulge as it can be laden with ingredients traditionally off-limits to vegans. Until now…

Brockenhurst's country house hotel, Careys Manor, is launching a new Vegan Afternoon Tea, thanks to head chef, Alistair Craig.

Guests will start off with a selection of open and finger sandwiches, with fillings they can trust not to compromise their values. Then tuck into a seasonal fruit slice and a golden syrup rice crispie cake. Take a break for some fruit scones and to savour the full flavour of our chocolate mousse pot. And top it all off with a decadent coconut milk truffle and, of course, tea from Careys Manor’s premium artisan selection from Camellia’s Tea House.

Guests can take tea in the hotel’s sunny Cambium restaurant, in the more relaxed surroundings of Careys Manor’s cosy lounge or, weather permitting, in the beautiful gardens. It’s the perfect treat for a friend, or to yourself, after a walk in the beautiful New Forest.

This new Vegan Afternoon Tea is just the latest addition to the nutrient-rich food revolution at Cambium and The Zen Garden restaurants at Careys Manor. Over the past six months, the hotel has been rolling out a botanical superfood menu – with plenty of vegan options – under the guidance and inspiration of Spring Green London, and part of the growing movement to encourage us all to enjoy high-quality, multi-tasking dishes.

Vegans can enjoy a selection from the Spring Green breakfast and all day menu, the perfect accompaniment to a day or evening in Careys Manor’s SenSpa. Or indulge in The Zen Garden Restaurant’s menu – a selection of authentic Thai dishes with a fresh infusion of exotic flavours.
