Afternoon Tea

The Art of Afternoon Tea

Experience a taste of the extraordinary at the Fife Arms as our guest for Afternoon Tea.  Enter a world of creativity, where you will dine alongside original masterpieces by Picasso and Pieter Breughel the Younger, in rooms enveloped by the Fife Arms tartan designed by Araminta Campbell or dramatic abstract murals by contemporary Argentinian artist Guillermo Kuitca and Chinese artist Zhang Enli.  Showcasing the skill of our pastry chefs, our Afternoon Tea menus are carefully curated with the finest local ingredients and artfully presented for your enjoyment.

The Drawing Room

The Drawing Room brings together art and history. The walls are adorned in The Fife Arms tartan, which was designed especially for the hotel and the room is richly furnished with Scottish art and antiques. It is a place to relax and unwind over coffee or an evening drink. The room’s ceiling was commissioned by Chinese artist, Zhang Enli, who is renowned for painting directly onto the walls or ceiling of a room to create an immersive, nostalgic environment. For ‘Ancient Quartz’ Zhang took inspiration from cross sections of Scottish agates, whose deceptively simple exteriors conceal a dazzling array of colour and texture.
