Halal Afternoon Tea in Yorkshire

Afternoon tea is a quintessentially British past time and in recent times, the supply of Halal, vegetarian and pescatarian-friendly options have become widely available, making it much more accessible for customers with specific dietary requirements. For us, this is extremely good news as we love nothing more than sipping on tea from dainty, China cups, nibbling on delicious sandwiches and continuing the hunt for the UK’s best scones. We have tried our fair share of afternoon teas around Yorkshire and have compiled this list to help you choose the perfect one for your next treat.

The hotel is elegant, yet calm, welcoming, and intimate for whatever the occasion may be. Their afternoon tea menus come in both Halal and Vegetarian options which just needs to be made clear at the time of booking.

Snowcold Creamery, Batley

Snowcold Creamery is better known for the delicious, fresh desserts but the expansion into Afternoon Tea also hits the mark.

Millie’s Hayfield, Peak District

  • Halal
  • No alcohol served

Although not strictly located in Yorkshire, Kiya – the owner of Millie’s Hayfield – is from Batley and this afternoon tea cannot be left off the list. Whilst AHFJ writers have only tried some elements of the afternoon tea menu, it speaks of volumes of what else there is to offer. Kiya is a qualified chocolatier and all the sweet elements of the afternoon tea have been carefully handcrafted by her and her team. Alongside this, the hot chocolates – which we have tried – are also made with real chocolate and their quality is outstanding. Flavours such as Ruby Chocolate make this a unique experience. Her scones are also made fresh in-house and are some of the best scones around. Millie’s is the only halal tearoom in Peak District, making it a sweet attraction for Muslim visitors. The tearoom is quirky and rustic, perfectly sitting in its surroundings.
