Country Tea Time at the Manor
for your special group, reservation necessary, minimum 6 people
"The food was as wonderful as your witty humor. You are always so delightful. Thank you." ~ Joyce and all the Bedford Tea Ladies
$22 per person
Gingerbread Manor provides a lovely setting for your women's group. Consider holding your next book club meeting, baby shower or off-site team meeting here and combine it all with a country tea! A Country Tea has all the charm, service and deliciousness of an English Tea. It just takes place in a Country Home, with interesting pottery and more hearty fare. We provide the food, beverages and all the homespun trimmings for your event, and we clean up! Above all, we realize that it's not the dishes, the house or the yummy sandwiches that really matter ... it is the time you spend with your friends!
Country Tea is served in the afternoon, any available day. We can accommodate up to eighteen people.
Finger sandwiches with a variety of tasty fillings, homemade butter scones and delicate sweets and treats are served with your loose tea of choice. Guests enjoy watching our hostess Kathleen fill the little personal tea bags right before your eyes! Jams, creams, sugars and other savory additions delight the palate. When the weather cooperates, goodies from our garden making appearances in your recipes. Of course, dietary restrictions are always honored if the Innkeeper is told when you make your reservation.
Country Tea requires a reservation. When you call, please be prepared to tell us how many people are attending. Upon arrival, please let the Innkeeper know if one of the guests will not be joining us; the food will be boxed to take along, as there are no refunds for a guest who does not show.
If you are celebrating a special event, we will gladly add special cupcakes to the fare. Reserve a date between Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day, and we will add an old-fashioned Christmas carol sing along, complete with live accompaniment on the 1931 Gulbransen piano and song sheets!
