Afternoon Tea

'If you are cold, tea will warm you; if you are too heated, it will cool you; If you are depressed, it will cheer you; if you are excited, it will calm you' - William Ewart Gladstone

From 3pm - 4pm, Monday to Friday, Afternoon Tea is available in the Food for Thought café.

Here you can relax, revive, and refresh yourself with freshly made sandwiches, cakes and scones. You can even add something special - a bottle of Prosecco or a birthday cake, for example (prices are available on request). It's the perfect way to catch up with friends or loved ones, celebrate a special occasion, or complete a day of shopping, reading or sightseeing.

Afternoon Tea must be booked at least 48 hours in advance by calling 01244 532350 or emailing enquiries@gladlib.org. Please specify any dietary restrictions or requirements at the time of booking - your Afternoon Tea is made up fresh and specially for you! Choose between savoury or sweet, depending on your mood...

A £5 per person non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking. 

You can also stretch out by the fire in the cosy setting of our beautiful lounge, the Gladstone Room, where you can read a book, catch up with the papers, or just enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. All are welcome.

We occasionally have special events for children during school holidays - keep an eye out for news.

£12 per person for adults

£3.50 per person for children
