The latest addition to Bantock, House Museum and Park’s Courtyard Café menu is proving popular with visitors.

Since June 2021 the café has been offering visitors a special dining experience which has received top reviews. 

Afternoon Tea has been added to the menu and is available for any occasion such as, meet-ups, birthdays, young children’s parties and wedding receptions.

For an introductory offer of £13.50 per person, party bookings will have their very own private function room, where up to 16 people can dine. Served on beautiful cake stands there is a range of tasty sandwiches, handmade cakes and scones, along with a pot of tea or coffee (Prosecco can be added for an addition £4.99 per person).  

New for the summer the team at The Courtyard Café have introduced a Children’s Afternoon Tea. An introductory offer of £7.50 per child which includes milkshakes, tea or squash in a tea pot, a selection of delicious cakes, crisps, heart and star shaped sandwiches, sausage rolls, carrots, cucumber and fresh fruit.

City of Wolverhampton Council Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for City Economy, Councillor Stephen Simkins, said: “This is a fantastic new addition to Bantock and The Courtyard Café. Over 125 bookings have been made to date with more being taken daily. 

“As well as the summer activities that have been taking place at this much-loved attraction this new catering offer means both adults and children can enjoy the fun and have a full day out at Bantock House Museum and Park.”

Kate Highfield, a customer who visited the café in June, said, "When we arrived, our reserved table was beautifully-presented and the friendly cafe staff had everything ready.

“We were provided china pots of tea and coffee and jugs of ice water with fresh lemon and mint and told to let staff know if we required any more. The selection of sandwiches, cakes and sausage rolls were all delicious. There was fresh fruit, side salad and even chocolate dipped strawberries.

“We all felt the freshly baked scones were the star of the show with their dinky little jars of clotted cream and pots of jam. We had a thoroughly lovely afternoon and plan to do it again very soon."

Afternoon Tea for both adults and children is available seven days a week. Advance booking is required, please call 01902 556345 for booking and availability. Dietary requirements can also be catered for (at least 72 hours’ notice is needed).

All parties who book an Afternoon Tea will also be able to enjoy free entry to Bantock House Museum and gardens which is set in 43 acres of parkland. Pitch and Putt is also available (weather permitting) for a small fee. There is also free parking available.
