Time for tea
Celebrate spring in Arambrook’s beautiful garden with afternoon tea
Arambrook boutique hotel was once upon a time a private home, whose owner was an avid gardener. As a result it’s an incredibly picturesque property, lovingly landscaped and looked after by its dedicated team.
Positioned under the trees with the Liesbeek River flowing alongside it, it’s a peaceful spot in Bishopscourt, one of Cape Town’s most prestigious suburbs and an area known for its gracious and generous gardens.
While up until now it’s predominantly been enjoyed by guests staying there, Arambrook is now open for afternoon tea – timed perfectly to make the most of the impending outdoor season.
“We’re perfectly situated for a quiet catch up with a friend, or for a private celebration. We serve tea on our sun-drenched verandah, where you can watch the dramatic mountain view while enjoying your afternoon,” says executive chef Stacey Lee Chan.
She divulges on the tea offering: “Our teas are made up of homemade delights filled with garden-to-table preserves and spreads. Our buttermilk scones are embellished with jam made from the hotel garden’s strawberries and mint. And our local black forest ham fritatas are topped with handpicked vine-ripened cherry tomato pesto.”
Additionally all the produce is organic and locally sourced. Arambrook caters for all kinds of occasions – being a boutique space they’re able to adapt to your needs and desires and can host up to 40 people. Tea is served from 2pm to 5pm, and booking is essential.
