Arriving just in time for summer’s alfresco season, The Summer Garden Gin Tea will be a quirky twist on the English classic, swapping the traditional glass of high tea fizz for a refreshing Hendricks gin and tonic, presented in a china tea pot over ice and lemon, alongside luxury finger sandwiches, miniature open rolls, freshly baked scones, the hotel’s finest jam, clotted cream, delicate pastries, petit fours, and a macaroon, as well as the obligatory endless loose leaf tea of your choice (or coffee).
2016 marks the hotel’s 150th anniversary and is also England’s year of the garden, so what better way to celebrate than with this unique version of the quintessentially English tradition, served overlooking the hotel’s breathtaking landscaped gardens, fountains and water features.
The Welcombe is a picturesque country house retreat, positioned at the northern tip of The Cotswolds, amidst the Shakespearean surroundings of the historic town of Stratford-Upon-Avon.
A majestic hidden gem within the Warwickshire countryside, the Jacobean-style hotel features four poster bedroom suites, luxury spa, 18 hole championship golf course, and a 2 AA Rosette Award winning restaurant overlooking the garden grounds.
