“Fabulous Afternoon Tea”

This was a gift bought for us and it was fabulous. The food was really lovely, we had to take some home as there was so much. We had lovely pink fizz. The place was great, the service was very good. Loved it, hope we can return again soon. Keep up the great work.

“A wonderful Afternoon Tea”

We visited the Fizzy Tarte on our wedding anniversary and treated ourselves to the Ultimate Afternoon tea which came with a hot drink and a glass of Rose Prosecco. The food- sandwiches, scones and cakes could not be faulted. It was all fresh, top quality and very enjoyable.

The drinks- again, all lovely and tasty stuff. We also tried some of the cocktails from the menu and greatly enjoyed them all. The staff were all so welcoming and friendly and helped make it a nice celebration for our special day.

Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area!

Lovely afternoon tea

First time to Fizzy Tarte and exceeded expectations. The service was first class from start to finish and they were really accommodating with everything we requested.

The afternoon tea was huge and although we couldn’t finish it in 2 hours, they gave us a box to take it away. Will definitely be back.

Our top 4 favourite afternoon teas in the Lake District

If you’re lucky enough to have already tried the Afternoon Tea at The Fizzy Tarté, then there are a whole range of other exciting afternoon tea options available across the Lake District, from the traditional to the more savoury. We also understand that the Lake District is a huge area to explore and that Bowness on Windermere may not be on your places to go list this time around – but that shouldn’t mean you can’t enjoy delectable treats elsewhere.  This is why we’ve come up with a list of our favourite places to enjoy Afternoon Tea in the Lake District, aside from ourselves and outside of Bowness on Windermere.

The Daffodil Hotel, Grasmere

Daffodil’s talented Pastry Chefs create artistic yet generous contemporary Afternoon Tea, featuring the very best selection of local produce and freshly baked cakes.

That’s not all – Afternoon Tea at The Daffodil also features a unique twist as they have partnered with popular brand Teapigs to bring you a selection of fruit and spiced teas. You will really have to try it to find out more!



Armathwaite Hall Hotel, Bassenthwaite

Recently the afternoon tea has been somewhat forgotten with the surge of skinny lattes and creamy cappuccinos, but Armathwaite Hall Hotel and Spa in the north Lake District has brought afternoon tea back to the 21st century. 

Their afternoon teas have come a long way from the cucumber sandwiches and one choice of tea. Today, afternoon tea is far more cosmopolitan with teas being imported from all over the world including Kenya, India, The Himalayas and China.



Inn on the Lake, Penrith

The relaxing atmosphere of the Inn on the Lake makes it the perfect place to enjoy afternoon tea in the north of the Lake District. 

The cosy atmosphere of the lounges and orangery with their roaring fire offers a wonderful spot to indulge in a luxury afternoon tea during the winter months. Or in the warmer months, the large outside terrace and gardens are a bright alternative with beautiful surroundings and views of the Lake.



Skiddaw Hotel, Keswick

Located in the centre of the Lake District in Keswick, the 4-star Skiddaw Hotel offers an exciting twist on the conventional afternoon tea in the form of their Hiker’s Picnic Board.

This sharing platter for 2 people is perfect for those with a savoury tooth, complete with snacks such as beef sliders, fried breaded fish, halloumi fries which are complimented by a selection of traditional cakes and scones.
