Afternoon Tea


Serendipity is a perfect place to relax and indulge yourself.

Serendipity Tea and Trinkets was the first to offer this in Sunderland and still remains the gold standard in service and food.

Serendipity's Afternoon Tea consists of:

  • A selection of dainty tasty sandwiches - a range of fillings available, tuna, ham, cheese, egg, chicken
  • Freshly baked savoury scones
  • Freshly baked sweet scones served with jam and Chantilly cream
  • A range of homemade cakes
  • Tea or coffee
  • All served on fine bone china
  • Orange squash will be available as a hot drink substitute. All other drinks will be available but charged at current menu price.

We offer 4 types of Afternoon Tea - champagne, prosecco, cocktail and classic.

All of our cakes and scones are homemade by us and we use only high quality ingredients to ensure the best for you, served on vintage china which has lovingly been collected by us.

Our Afternoon Tea starts from £15.00 per person.

** ADVANCE BOOKINGS ONLY - 24 HOURS AT LEAST (everything is baked to order) ***
