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!
