Father's Day - June 16th

Father's day themed tea in collaboration with our razor-sharp friends at Swagger and Jacks!

We are very excited about our very special Father’s Day Afternoon Tea on June 16 in collaboration with Gentlemen’s Grooming Barbershop Swagger and Jacks!

Notoriously difficult to buy gifts for, this alternative present for the father or father figure in your life is a cut above a novelty mug or a pair of socks: even better, you’ll be able to come with your Dad so that he can enjoy the best gift of all: you!

This year, take the biscuit with a teatime treat from Mark Mitson’s pastry team who recently won Best Afternoon Tea at the Eat Norfolk Food and Drink Awards at the beautiful building which won Norfolk and Suffolk’s Best Food and Drink Attraction at Thursday’s Tourism Awards!

Mark has created a shear delight of a tea which includes themed cakes inspired by our good friends – and barbers to boss Richard Hughes – Swagger and Jacks, a selection of delicious manwiches (sorry) and some extra savoury treats at our tea, such as a sausage (or squashage if you’re a vegetarian) roll and a burger slider in addition to the normal three-cheese toastie.

And as an added bonus, when you book a table for tea on June 16, you will be in with winning a well-groomed box full of Swagger and Jacks treats from the team’s Orford Hill store, a fabulous vintage-style barbershop where every day is Father’s Day when it comes to grooming and sharp style.

In addition to sandwiches, savoury treats and cakes, the standard tea also boasts sweet and savoury scones, including the Cheese, Colman’s Mustard and Chive Scone, for which The Assembly House is famed.

We can adapt Father’s Day tea for vegetarians, vegans and gluten-free if booked in advance and a smaller children’s afternoon tea will also be available.

The price is the same as our standard afternoon tea, £21.95 for one, £42 for two, £12.95 for children, a 10 per cent discretionary service charge is added to all bills, 100 per cent of which is distributed to staff.
