Quintessentially English, Afternoon Tea at The Mandolay has quickly appeared as a Guildford tradition and it is not difficult to see why… Home made fruit and savoury scones, macaroons and freshly made tarts arrive alongside exquisite finger sandwiches of Smoked Salmon, locally produced ham, Sussex cheese and delicious moist chicken. Jams and preserves are also home made as is the bread. Of course we offer a selection of truly fine teas including many favourites as well as number of fruit infusions. – Guildford Good Time Guide


There can be few times when the addition of perfectly chilled Prosecco cannot add to the good times.

Here at Mandolay we are delighted to offer a 90 minute Afternoon Tea service with the deliciously indulgent ‘something special’ of free-flowing Prosecco served at your table by our attentive service team.

Enjoy the same wonderful selection of handmade pastries, rich buttermilk scones of our Classic or Savoury Afternoon Tea, accompanied by the crisp sweetness of our finest Italian Sparkling wine.

*As a responsible purveyor of alcoholic beverages and to comply with current legislation the ‘free flow Prosecco’ is served at the table for the duration of your afternoon tea for 90 minutes.



Served freshly baked and warm, we offer a plain and raisin scone with a soft, yielding texture and a colour of warm white gold. The scones are accompanied by Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream, which we consider to be the finest in Britain, and Stokes British extra strawberry jam.


It’s been a topic of much debate over the generations. In our view, it is the cream that comes first, followed by a teaspoon of Stokes British extra strawberry jam. Of course, this is just our own opinion, and the order of ceremony will always remain entirely a matter of the guest’s own taste and preference.


A brand-new interpretation of our Classic Afternoon Tea, created by Head Chef David and his team to tempt that palate of those that prefer a savoury twist.

Light as a cloud scones and savoury pastries compliment the robust flavours of this seasonal addition to our menu. Smoked salmon, roast beef and freshly baked, and herb filled sausage rolls presented alongside Arancini, and lamb bon bons, characterise the flavour-packed sensations of our Savoury Afternoon Tea.

Combining traditionally delicate appearance with strong flavours and textures, this is an absolute must for lovers of a full-bodied afternoon tea experience.

“A delightful take on the traditional afternoon tea, The Mandolay in Guildford has spiced things up with their brand new savoury afternoon tea. Muddy was the first to sample the goodies.” – Muddy Stilettos 


Our exquisite attention to detail ensures that every glorious bite looks as good as it tastes.

We invite you to experience a selection of delicate finger sandwiches made using artisan bread generously filled with freshly prepared delights, warm buttermilk and raisin scones straight from the oven, and hand-made pastries.

Presented, as you should expect, with a selection of loose-leaf tea from the master blenders at Newby.

Afternoon Tea is an affordable indulgence, perfect for any day or a special occasion.
