Join us for Royal Tea to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee


To celebrate this historic year, the team at Romney Restaurant has designed an afternoon tea with a doff of the hat to Her Royal Highness record-breaking 70 years on the throne.

As well as taking in the decadent surroundings our guests have come to love here at Romney at Mote House, we'll be sprucing things up with a patriotic Jubilee touch for the extended weekend. Join us for our Royal Tea with such English favourites as victoria sponge, lemon posset and Coronation chicken sandwich fingers.

We expect our Jubilee weekend events to be very popular so please book early to secure your table. If you have any special requests, such as a particular table or an event, please either call to confirm availability or add a special request to your booking online.

Buttermilk Scones

Scones became popular in the 18th Century and are considered to be an essential part of the fashionable ritual of taking tea in England. With the Queen's Jubilee approaching, we asked our Head Chef at our Yorkshire restaurant for his tried and tested recipe to bake 10-12 crumbly scones at home.
