Treat yourself to a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Afternoon Tea
Did you know Roald Dahl invented more than 500 words and character names in his collection of novels? You can find some of Roald Dahl’s inventions on the menu. Try out the Snozzberry Jam on your scone or gulp down a Chocolate Swudge Milkshake. Don’t forget to try the Juicy Roast Beef and salmon and beetroot macaroons too.
Chow down on Fluffy Floss and a boxed stack of wondrous cakes, sweets, mallows and creams! Feeling a little parched? Wash these treats down with chocolate or lemon sherbert tea.
If you’re an adult, we recommend trying the juicing room mix or the Water Pistol Punch Cocktails! There is also some Fizzy Lifting Champagne – just try not to float away in the sky…
