Here you can choose a simple, yet delicious cup of tea, opt for the more indulgent ‘Ha-Ha Tea’ or any combination of your choice from our afternoon tea menu.

The Christie Balcony at Mildmay

After the success of this experiment in 2016 we will make available a limited number of pre-performance afternoon tea tables for those diners who wish to reserve a table and pre-order the Ha-Ha Tea on the Christie Balcony. There are a maximum of 30 seats available. We suggest early booking to avoid disappointment. This offer replaces the tea service formerly served in Middle & Over Wallop although this can be made available for parties of 12 or more, upon request. We regret that the offer is only available to those who specifically wish to order the Ha-Ha tea.

Our ‘Ha-Ha Tea’ at £18.50 per person includes freshly baked scones with Cornish clotted cream and summer fruit jams, finger sandwiches, French pastries and a selection of teas or coffees. Why not add a glass of Champagne for an inclusive price of £27.25. Alternatively, individually priced tea items can be purchased from the menu. In addition, we offer a range of Champagne and wines by the bottle or glass and a variety of soft drinks. Tables can only be guaranteed by pre-booking.
