Traditional Vintage Afternoon Tea
A Room Forty afternoon tea at home is designed to surprise and delight you, and with our award winning hospitality we know you'll be thrilled with what we offer.
Everything at Room Forty is home made, with love. We dont do big cakes, we lots of individual cakes. Its individual patisserie without the additives, preservative and colourings. Just read our five star reviews to get a flavour for what we do.
We bring everything to you, and set up your room, transforming it from a dining room or board room into a vintage style tea room.
When your guests arrive we will serve chilled drinks, before you sit down for dainty finger sandwiches and a choice of Cheshire Tea's.
I'm sure you know what comes next. Yes, beautiful fresh scones with jam and cream and several patisserie on our vintage cake stands.
We'll keep the tea coming while you eat, and, if you have booked entertainment we'll manage that for you too, so the host really can enjoy the party.
We'll then stay with you and wash up, giving your guests plenty of time to enjoy the ambiance, the linens and the bubbly (not supplied).
We travel across the Cheshire and the North West of England. Contact us for more details 01925 357940.

"I hired Room Forty as a surprise for my daughters 30the birthday. It was more than I could have hoped for and we had such a lovely time. Penny arrived before our guests and set the table, even bringing flowers from her own garden. Everything was perfect from the pretty linen to the Happy Birthday teapot. The food was delicious and all hand made by Penny. I would not hesitate in recommending Room Forty for that very special occasion."
"Amazing, Outstanding, out of this world! the best afternoon tea experience. This is my 4th Room Forty and I already cant wait for the next. thank you so much Jen for making my birthday special x"
"Booked Jen and her team to cater for my son's Baptism and all I can say is WOW! The sandwiches and cakes were all freshly made and Jen even added a taste of lemon as it is a personal favourite of mine! During the service, the team decorate the room so all guests entered a really welcoming vintage experience. The music added that authentic touch and really created a superb atmosphere! The tea was delicious and absolutely nothing was too much trouble for this fantastic team! I cannot recommend Room Forty enough for any size party, if you want something different and of a very high quality. Thank you for making an already specially day pretty much perfect! Much love xxxx"
"I booked the mobile afternoon tea for my best friends hen do and it was fantastic! The food was amazing and loved the little handmade touches to it. The service was great, I'm normally uncomfortable having people serve me but Jen did this perfectly. She was there if you needed but you didn't feel uncomfortable in her presence. I would definitely recommend and will be booking again! Thanks so much Jen!"
