Mad Hatters tea parties, china cake stands, no crustless sandwiches, homemade cakes and jam-smothered scones with a top secretrecipe all lay in store for those booking an afternoon tea at Davenports. The tea room scooped the Tea Guilds final national award in 2013, but the Alice in Wonderland themed murals and décor certainly steal the show at this place. The theme all becomes clear when guests learn that the decoration is in homage of the author Lewis Carroll, who was born less than two miles away in Daresbury, Cheshire. Try the Afternoon Tea and Be Pamperedpackage which includes beauty treatments for ultimate relaxation. 
Classic Afternoon Tea for Two starts from £40.85.
