High tea in the country manor
STEP back in time this Sunday with a high tea lunch, tour and antique sale at the Abbey of the Roses.
Owners Sonia Hunt and Mark Cains play host from 12.30pm to 2pm in the veranda room, serving a variety of miniature sweet and savoury delights.
The high tea lunch includes a 15-20 minute tour through the downstairs section of the heritage-listed manor, with a glimpse into the history of not only the building but also Warwick.
"Guests have 10 different herbal teas to choose from, which are all Lipton and Twinings," Ms Hunt said.
Guests are invited to look over the various antiques on sale, which have been sourced from all over Australia.
"We have trio of cups from $18 right through to wardrobes for $1500," Ms Hunt said.
"There are many items from silverware to Sadler tea pots to choose from."
Ms Hunt said the high tea lunch had a distinct Victorian feel.
"It is a very elegant atmosphere, so we have the linen tablecloths on the tables and linen napkins which we place on your lap before serving gourmet sandwiches and six different bite-size sweets," she said.
"It is all about the experience of dining."
The high tea is $45 per person with bookings essential.
