wedding event. Catered by the Tea Set

We can cater for most dietary requirements such as:

  • Dairy/lactose free. 

  • Coeliac.* 

  • Vegetarian & vegan.


We do not work* in a wheat and gluten free environment so cannot 100% guarantee there will be no cross-contamination.


We offer vintage afternoon teas for all occasions including weddings, naming ceremonies, birthdays and anniversaries. 

We have three menus to cover all tastes and purses, but nothing is set in stone so please ask if you'd like to 'mix & match' - for weddings we also offer a free, no obligation tasting for you to 'try before you buy'! As with our sandwich arm we try and source all of our ingredients from local and/or small suppliers.

We also provide buffet lunches for businesses, sympathetic funeral wakes, canapes & sharing platters.

We chose The Chipping Norton Tea Set to cater at our wedding on 6th August and it was a great decision!


The afternoon tea was just what we wanted, with beautiful vintage crockery, delicious food and great service from Victoria and the waiting staff. It was a lovely alternative to the traditional wedding breakfast and our guests just loved it.


Thank you so much to Victoria and the team!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing your beautiful vintage china, champagne saucers, and delicious tea to our "wedding" in Beckley. The food was utterly scrumptious, stunningly presented, and there was no shortage of excellent tea to go with it. It was everything that we wanted for the day and more, and we could not have been more thrilled.


We also love our surprise gift from you - it made it over the USA safely and makes afternoons very much more British! Thank you!


100% recommended!!
