Found just outside of Colchester, between Great Tey and Little Tey, is the enchanting Barn Brasserie, a stunning venue that blends in perfectly with the Essex countryside. The Barn is a charming location for any occasion, yet no visit is as tranquil and relaxing as arriving for a spot of Afternoon Tea.
The Barn is a 16th century timber barn that’s undergone loving reconstruction by skilled craftspeople to retain the traditional décor, such as a thatched roof and wide oak beams. Sitting inside is quite the experience, as the wide open spaces, combined with rustic touches, creates quite a bewitching ambience.
Diners have two options for their session of afternoon tea; the simple Cream Tea offering or the sublime Afternoon Tea spread. Cream Tea includes a pair of scones, with lashings of Devonshire clotted cream and Tiptree jam, and a choice of cafetiere coffee or a selection of fragrant teas. With a touch more indulgence, the Afternoon Tea set features all the delights of the Cream Tea offer along with some tantalising sweet treats, such as homemade double chocolate brownies and miniature lemon tarts, as well as some delicate finger sandwiches, containing traditional fillings like hand carved ham with cheddar cheese and Scottish smoked salmon with cream cheese.
Gourmet Society members can enjoy this and the exemplary afternoon tea with a guest at a fantastic price when they call in advance, creating the perfect excuse to venture out into the countryside and enjoy a spot of pampering.
