Vintage Afternoon Tea by the Sea
Family owned and operated, Frieda's Tearoom is an afternoon tea experience like no other. Set on-board a vintage shabby-chic double-decker bus, guests are individually greeted and the personal hospitality continues right through your one and a half hour experience along the beautiful Bournemouth coastline. The return journey starts at Bournemouth Pier and heads to Boscombe Pier and Southbourne’s historic Hengistbury Head.
Afternoon tea on a vintage bus
Frieda's pulls out all the stops to ensure a quality experience. The plates, sugar bowl and milk jug are all served in beautiful gold plated bone china for a sense of occasion.
Given that the afternoon tea experience takes place on a moving bus, extra precautions are taken to avoid spillages - tea is served in lovely ceramic handle-less mugs with rubber lids and the three-tier cake stand is affixed to the table so it doesn’t fall over.
The desserts were a piece of art with options such as lemon slices, sensational macaroons (fruity and lightly chewy in the middle), mini chocolate cupcakes and strawberry slices on offer.
For a memorable afternoon tea experience unlike any other, Frieda's is in a league of its own. Frieda’s Teabus Tours operates every weekend and departs at 2pm from Bournemouth Pier.
