Luxury Family Hotels launch the Matilda Afternoon Tea

The Matilda Afternoon Tea available at Luxury Family Hotels Luxury Family Hotels is delighted to announce a very special partnership with The Roald Dahl Story Company - the Matilda Afternoon Tea. This magical dining experience themed on the iconic children's story will be unveiled at all five Luxury Family Hotels properties from 26th April 2022: Fowey Hall in South Cornwall, Moonfleet Manor on the Jurassic Coast, New Park Manor in the New Forest, The Ickworth near Bury-st-Edmunds and Woolley Grange in Wiltshire. The tea, available for adults and little ones alike, can be booked online from 21st March 2022.

The perfect modern tale of triumph over adversity, Matilda is the story of a very small and very smart little girl who, through bravery, sheer determination, and a little help from her friends, overcomes the much bigger bullies in her life and changes her story for the better. As a much-loved tale by many, Luxury Family Hotels were thrilled at the unique opportunity to collaborate with The Roald Dahl Story Company and bring the delightful story, with all its wonderful foodie moments, to its hotels.

Eat, eat, eat!
The Matilda Afternoon Tea experience includes both an adult and children's menu and has been lovingly crafted to celebrate the story's iconic food moments, from the cosy afterschool sharing of bread and margarine in Miss Honey's cottage, to Bruce's formidable battle with an enormous chocolate cake – and of course who can forget the infamous newt slipped into the Trunchbull's water jug! Families of all ages can share in the surprise and delight of the tale together, enjoying the scrumptious and theatrical creations crafted by the Luxury Family Hotels culinary team. The magic starts with a selection of carefully curated sandwiches followed by delicious sweet treats and homemade scones alongside a selection of teas, coffees and – of course – newt juice!

Come on Brucie, you can make it!
As an extra treat, a recipe for Luxury Family Hotels' take on Bruce Bogtrotter's chocolate cake is also tucked into the menu. Guests are encouraged to share their creations with the social tag #MatildaLuxuryFamilyHotels.
