Yorkshire Afternoon Tea

Come and join us for a Yorkshire Afternoon Tea at the Pot Still Coffee Shop and enjoy a selection of finely cut sandwiches, freshly baked scones and cakes served with a hot drink of your choice with the unique backdrop of Yorkshire’s first single malt whisky distillery.

Provenance is really important to our Afternoon Tea – we want it to be a true ‘Yorkshire’ experience and so we use our favourite local producers wherever possible. Eggs come from a farm in Burton Fleming, our neighbouring village; our milk is from St. Quintin’s Creamery in nearby Harpham; and ham comes from Trotters Farm Shop in Sherburn. We look a little further afield for a coffee, using Dark Woods in Huddersfield because we really like their philosophy, and of course, we use Yorkshire Tea because we love it ourselves. Last but never least, our cheese comes from the home of cheese: Wensleydale, in the Yorkshire Dales.

Key Details

From £15 per person, our Afternoon Teas are available 7 days a week: between 1pm and 3pm Monday – Saturday, and between 12pm and 2pm on Sundays. Because they’re made by the team here at the distillery, they must be booked 24 hours in advance.

A little more special

Make it extra special with a pint of Wold Top Beer or a glass of prosecco.

Our Afternoon Teas can be vegan, vegetarian or gluten free. Please contact our team prior to your reservation if you have any dietary requirements either by: calling 01723891758 in opening hours, by emailing [email protected], or add as a note alongside your booking.

Can children join the tour?

Everyone over the age of 6 is welcome to join a tour. We cannot allow anyone under the age of 6 into the still house. Therefore they cannot join the tour. This includes babes-in-arms.

What days will you be distilling?

The stills are in action on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. However very occasionally, for technical reasons, there will be times when we are not distilling on those days.

Can I bring my dog into the distillery?

We love our furry four legged friends however as we are a working distillery, we can only allow Assistance Dogs into the distillery building. This includes the distillery shop and the Pot Still Coffee Shop.

How long are the distillery tours

Our Daily Distillery Tours last 60 minutes (at 11, 1 and 3 everyday). The Distillery Deep Dive is 90 minutes. And our Brewery and Distillery Tours take around 3 hours.
