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

Gladstone's Library is a place to retreat away from the busy outside world. Now you can enjoy the luxury of traditional Afternoon Tea in our Food for Thought restaurant or outside in the beautiful gardens.
