Afternoon tea in Wales: cake selection

Afternoon Tea in Wales

Afternoon Tea in Wales The Angel, Abergavenny finally has some competition!

For many people in South Wales, The Angel Hotel in Abergavenny has been the ‘go-to’ for Afternoon tea in Wales. However, recently opened within the Pontypool Museum in the heart of Torfaen is a little hidden gem: a vintage tea room serving a selection of hand made cakes and choice of teas and coffee. Ornate and authentic vintage china sets the right tone, and delicately made sandwiches and beautifully crafted cakes make for a real sense of occasion.

Each afternoon tea is hand-crafted to order and so advance booking is necessary. Open on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays the tea room offers a traditional afternoon tea served on vintage china with hand-crafted cakes and fancies.

Always a joy to be asked to photograph cakes for the tea room – photographers privilege is that I get to eat them when I’m done!
