In Yorkshire, we love afternoon tea, and with historic places like Bothams of Whitby, and Bettys Tea Room we definitely know how to do it. And, now another lesser-known Yorkshire cafe has been named one of the best afternoon teas in the UK.
This time it wasn’t North Yorkshire taking the crown, but South Yorkshire as a cafe in the newly named City of Doncaster featured in The Times’ top 23 best places for afternoon tea in the UK.
The cafe in question was The Glass Strawberry, which is located on Printing Office Street in Doncaster city centre and was named in the same breath as The Ritz, and Fortum and Mason.
The popular cafe took to Instagram to celebrate the news having been named one of the best afternoon teas in the UK, which doesn’t happen every day!
The post read: “Wonderful news! We are delighted and exceptionally proud to share that our afternoon tea has been featured in the Times newspaper.

“Their article puts us among the top 23 best places in the UK to take afternoon tea. What an honour! It’s particularly thrilling that we have been listed alongside such esteemed establishments as The Ritz, Fortnum & Mason & Claridge’s in London.”
“This success is wonderful news for our dedicated afternoon tea coordinators (Alison & Antonia) & all of our front-of-house staff who work hard to ensure each customer’s visit is an enjoyable one.”
The Afternoon tea is served on a lovely wooden stand and almost looks too good to eat with its edible flowers. It consists of delicate crustless finger sandwiches, a fruit scone, cream and jam, mini hand-finished cakes, a portion of homemade soup and unlimited pots of Yorkshire Tea and coffees.
The standard afternoon tea costs £25 and if you want the superior afternoon tea, which includes prosecco for £29 to make it a littl bit special.
