Surrounded by pretty lawns and peaceful gardens, The Old Swan Hotel is a charming hotel and restaurant situated close to the heart of Harrogate. Steeped in almost 200 years of history, the hotel is famous for being the secret hideout for British crime-writing icon, Agatha Christie, when in 1926 she famously disappeared for 11 days, resulting in wide-spread public furore.
From its revolving front doors to the elegant glass ceiling in the Wedgwood restaurant, The Old Swan is a fantastic place to enjoy a deluxe afternoon tea with a friend or loved one.
Sit back and relax amongst the beautiful surroundings and indulge in a selection of dainty finger sandwiches including smoked salmon and cream cheese, ham, tomato and mustard, cheddar and sweet pickle and coronation chicken. Followed with a selection of sweet treats such as homemade fruit scones with strawberry preserve and clotted cream and a variety of homemade cakes, all served with a variety of refreshing teas to choose from.
Upon arrival you will be greeted by your server before being seated and served your afternoon tea. Any additional food or drinks can be purchased on the day.
