Immerse yourself in a historical setting with High Tea at The Stables of Como

Step back in time. Indulge in a bygone era with High Tea at The Stables of Como.

On a rainy afternoon, I accompanied my daughter to High Tea. I was transported back to this timeless tradition of tea, sandwiches, and pastries.

Como House, a landmark built in 1847, and its garden set the backdrop for this experience. And, the High Tea was held in a cafe nestled near the old stables and the garden, the Stables of Como.

For this post, I experienced it at my own cost. and the opinion is my own.

The Stables of Como High Tea Details

My daughter and I went on a Saturday which cost $65 per adult for the non-alcohol option.

It costs $10 per head more for the alcohol option. And, Sunday bookings have a surcharge. And, there is a kid's High Tea option, too.

The booking is from 3 pm to 5 pm. I found there was plenty of time for the High Tea and finished it before the allocated 5 pm.

My daughter parked the car on Lechlade Avenue. She and I walked through the gates on Lechlade Avenue which goes up an incline on a tarred surface near to the entrance of The Stables of Como. The driveway and curbs are made of bluestone. I found being on a rainy Saturday afternoon in January, it was easy to find a car park.

Stables of Como High Tea Menu

I chose the non-alcohol option of the High Tea, and I indulged in:

  • Dill and Cucumber Sandwiches
  • House Cured Salmon Gravlax, Crème Fraiche Crumpet
  • Prawn Brioche Slider
  • Duck and Quince Pithivier
  • Lemonade Scones with Bonne Maman Jam and Clotted Cream
  • Ginger Brulé Tartlet
  • Petit Paris Brest
  • Red Velvet Tea Cake
  • Lyonville Mineral Water
  • English Breakfast Tea
  • Orange Juice

My daughter and I's favourite was the Petit Paris Brest.

My daughter ate both the Croque Monsieur. because of the cheese ingredient. I thought the sauce on the Prawn Brioche Slider was spicy, so I ate the prawns and my daughter ate the slider and sauce.

Experience the House and Garden

My daughter and I arrived early. So, I walked around the gardens.

Entry to the gardens is free. If you want to go inside Como House, there is an entry fee. Acquaint yourself with the history of Como House.

On the noticeboard, I discovered that the National Trust is raising funds for restoration works for Como House, Como Reimagined. Get more details about their campaign by clicking here.

Wander around the rose garden behind The Stables of Como. You'll see a variety of flowers there, too.
