Nantwich and Tarporley’s Favourite Afternoon Tea

The Ginger & Pickles afternoon tea has been delighting the residents and visitors of Nantwich for 11 years, and has become famous for being scrumptious, indulgent and hearty. You will not find any dainty pastries or delicate sugar flowers here! What you will find is a mountain of yummy sandwiches jam-packed with delicious local ingredients, scrumptious freshly baked scones with lashings of jam and clotted cream, and the most humongous slices of homemade show stopper cakes. It is a challenge for even the hungriest of cake lovers and would give Bruce Bogtrotter a run for his money.

Here at Ginger & Pickles, we firmly believe in treating yourself, which is why we also serve afternoon tea with Pimms and afternoon tea with prosecco. Because, why not? View the entire afternoon tea menu here.

The On-Screen Afternoon Tea Experience

One of the reasons why Ginger & Pickles offers the best afternoon tea in Cheshire, is that we sought inspiration from one of the wackiest, brilliant minds in the food industry—Heston Blumenthal. Heston invited the Ginger and Pickles family to his Afternoon Tea Manor where he revealed all kinds of delicious tea time delights disguised as playing cards, poker chips and even plates! While our afternoon teas are not served on edible plates, we certainly came away bursting with enthusiasm and ideas to keep afternoon tea alive and exciting in Cheshire.

Watch the Ginger & Pickles family on Chanel 4’s Heston’s Great British Food here. Keep an eye out for Beverley trying to fit an edible poker chip in her mouth!
