  1. Hi

    are you open on new years eve for afternoon tea? thanks

    What a brilliant afternoon once again. After my cancer ordeal I came to the custom house with my daughter to chill out. We had such a wonderful time we decided it was to become “our thing” and we would visit every week in school holidays.
    We chose to phone and see if we could be accommodated today and they said if we waited 2hrs to get organised it was fine. We decided to upgrade to deluxe and boy we will not be eating for the rest of the week. The food is brilliant, the staff and service even more so. Not many 13yr olds choose afternoon tea as a treat but my daughter certainly does.
    We enjoy the teacups and sugar cubes and the food being served on a cake stand..decadence we enjoy. :-) .
    Cannot wait or holidays to go again. Would recommend this treat for anyone but especially mums and daughters.

  3. Hi, am thinking of booking an afternoon tea, do you do an option for children?
    Many thanks

    • Leanne,
      We don’t have an afternoon tea package for children option. However, I’m sure we could adjust the adult package for you.

      What age and what number of children / adults? I’m assuming children happy with the cakes but maybe a different sandwich? Or would you prefer they ate off the children’s menu, or 1 adult afternoon tea between 2?

      Let me have your thoughts and we’ll work something up for you,
