The Best Afternoon Tea in Doncaster

Every year on the last Friday in June British tradition comes alive on National Cream Tea day.


In celebration of this here is SL Guide’s Round up of the best Afternoon Tea in Doncaster.


Dainty finger sandwiches, moreish scones, delicate cakes and vibrant tarts – all sunk with a jolly good cuppa. What’s not to love?

Afternoon tea, it’s the ultimate indulgence. Whether you’re looking to mark a special occasion, toast an achievement or simply want an excuse to scoff the day away, Doncaster is the perfect place to get your tea and cake on. But where are the best places to go? From the traditional to the innovative, the sweet to the savoury, the lavish to the local, here’s what should go straight on your hit list.


The Earl of Doncaster



The Earl is loved by so many; they just get it so right. Situated in the heart of Doncaster they sure know how to make an irresistible afternoon tea- one of the best in town!

Their classic afternoon tea is to die for, but it doesn’t just end there, if lashings of cream and rich pastries aren’t your thing, they also offer a savoury afternoon tea which includes a cheese board and ploughman’s pork pie.

You can also join their Afternoon Tea club- why wouldn’t you!?

The Herbalist



Stylish and oh so sophisticated, The Herbalist is a great choice if you are looking for a picture-perfect afternoon tea. Situated down a cute cobbled street, the Herbalist is located in the heart of the pretty market town of Retford.

Their afternoon tea has an Italian flare that is not to be missed and you need to keep an eye out for their themed events.

The Glass Strawberry



The Glass Strawberry is a much-loved addition to the town centre of Doncaster, a great spot to sit back and relax after some retail therapy. The reviews about this place speak for themselves.

They have a classic but colourful afternoon tea with deliciously crumbly scones ready to slather with clotted cream.
