    Forest Afternoon Tea - 2pm–5pm daily


    Afternoon Tea is always a treat, but here at Galtres Lodge we have decided to create something a little different & very special!  Did you know that we are named after the Royal Forest of Galtres?  Established by the Norman kings of England the forest once extended to the city walls & comprised of 60 villages in 100,000 acres.  During the second quarter of the 17th century, Galtres was subject to disafforestation as a result of the Crown's desperate need for ready money, & the forest eventually disappeared.  We have taken inspiration from our history & created a “Forest Afternoon Tea” – the most exciting Afternoon Tea in York (if not beyond!)
