THE Courthouse in Knutsford and The Vicarage in Holmes Chapel have launched a ‘beat the clock’ initiative to celebrate Afternoon Tea Week, and available throughout August.

Both Grade II listed venues, The Courthouse and The Vicarage serve a traditional Afternoon Tea complete with finger sandwiches, fruit scones, jams, cream and homemade cakes and tarts.

As part of Afternoon Tea Week, both venues will offer guests the chance to ‘beat the clock’, meaning the earlier they book in for Afternoon Tea, the cheaper it will be.

Starting at 13:00pm and £13.00, the Afternoon Tea will be priced according to the time of day and runs up to 17:00pm and £17.00. Usually priced at £19.95, guests can enjoy up to 35 per cent off, depending on the time.

The ‘beat the clock’ offer will be available at The Courthouse and The Vicarage daily from 13:00pm to 17:00pm throughout August - subject to availability.

Booking is required. Please call 01565 743 333 or visit for The Courthouse or 01477 533 393 or visit for The Vicarage.
