The space is large, airy, and has high ceilings. There are a range of teas and an excellent selection for brunch, lunch, or afternoon tea. It's also wonderful location for celebrations or just a quick bite.

We booked high tea expecting an afternoon tea however it was much more than that. We were served with not only sandwiches and cakes but also a selection of really delicious hot items such as mini curry dishes, mini cottage pies etc, really very good.

Booth Mansion exceeded all expectations. The staff were very welcoming on arrival, the surroundings are perfect for a special afternoon tea experience. The food then arrives and the gastronomic experience begins. Do not miss out on this wonderful experience.
