Afternoon tea doesn't have to be exclusive, and those seeking a plant-based treat don't have to compromise on their values to indulge in this quintessentially British afternoon tradition. From fancy finger sandwiches filled with coronation of chickpea, or salt-baked beetroot with tarragon hummus and red-beet bread, to aubergine caviar, there's plenty to tuck into. And that's just for starters. Desserts are plentiful, spanning freshly baked scones (some are Irn-Bru infused) with fresh strawberries and coconut cream, homemade candy floss, and golden syrup crispy rice cakes, to blueberry and lemon vegan cheesecakes. Here we round up the best hotels in the UK for vegetarian and vegan afternoon teas.
