The Doggy Afternoon Tea is served in The Egerton’s elegant Drawing Room, and includes a pooch-pleasing selection of treats , such as chicken and beef meatloaf, homemade dog biscuits, dog ice cream and a special chew toy to take home. Two-legged guests can also enjoy their own afternoon tea, comprising a tempting assortment of delicate finger sandwiches and pastries, freshly baked scones with thick clotted cream and fruit preserves, accompanied by an extensive selection of JING teas and coffees. Doggy Afternoon Tea birthday parties are becoming quite popular at The Egerton, with pups often turning up in their ‘Sunday best’ bow ties and ribbons for the occasion!
