Taking time out of your afternoon to enjoy a high tea is one of life’s luxuries. Here are some great places to go for a high tea in Norfolk

- The Grove

95 Overstrand Road, Cromer

A good afternoon tea should be like a full stop; it separates our daily activities, just as a full stop separates busy sentences. At The Grove, afternoon teas are fast gaining a reputation for having lovely afternoon teas. The array of light cakes, brownies, scones, finger sandwiches and pastries are the main reason, but it is more than the food, it is the whole atmosphere that makes it really special. Guests come, and stop. Hours later, full of tea and cakes, they are still enjoying. It's the sort of place that makes you pause, breathe and punctuate. The Lounge, Green Room, Orangery-bar or gardens are perfect for all weather and occasions.
