“There is always time for tea”

The Roslin Beach Hotel & Retreat is renowned for the finest afternoon tea in Essex. Experience this tradition every day from 2pm to 5pm (from 12pm Saturday & Sunday) nestled in this beautiful hotel. Truly a charming and delightful way to spend your afternoon, you’ll enjoy an opulent setting with elegant, welcoming service, transforming tea into an indulgent treat. Our traditional English afternoon tea is served on quaint vintage Duchess bone china with an eclectic range of teas or freshly brewed coffee.

Your exquisite homemade tea will be served on a three-tiered cake stand with a splendid array of fancies including finger sandwiches with a selection of fillings, fruit scones with Devonshire clotted cream and an assortment of Tiptree jams. A collection of home-made cakes and treats is the greatest accompaniment to finish this perfect example of British culture inspired by tradition.

Watch out for our new scrumptious Christmas Afternoon Tea; a true treat this festive season!


 Delve into tradition with a twist by enjoying different exquisite savoury and sweet selections each month. With timeless classics such as finely cut sandwiches and freshly baked scones, your taste buds are in for a treat.

Why not indulge yourself a little further and upgrade to The Sparkling Afternoon Tea, a sheer delight to cherish! And if this is all too much, we will carefully pack any pastries and cakes in a lovely Roslin cake box for you to enjoy at home later.
