High Teas

Come in and indulge in our luxurious High Teas. Perfect for celebrating a special occasion or just for a little treat.

Including a selection of gourmet treats and savories

Come in and enjoy our beautiful high teas in the nostalgic ambiance of Escape to Picton. The nostalgia of high tea fits perfectly at Escape to Picton which was originally the Bank of New Zealand back in 1902. You can imagine the bank manager of the day hosting occasions just like this. The old safe is still there, behind the bar.

Our High Teas are served on 3 tiered glass stands with antique tea sets. There’s a large range of teas to choose from or alternatively you can have coffee. Our High Teas have a gorgeous, gourmet selection of sweet treats including but not limited to our macaroons, opera cake, lemon curd tartlets as well as a selection of traditional sandwiches and savory delights.

To book just pop in and speak to our friendly team, email us on enquiries@escapetopicton.com, or ring us on (03) 573 5573, and let us know if anyone has any dietary requirements or allergies.
