Introducing the Castleton Classics Afternoon Tea: A Taste of Tradition

Building on the success of our themed teas, we’re excited to introduce Castleton Classics. These timeless Castleton favourites are crafted with passion and expertise, paying tribute to the dedicated team members who bring them to life. Castleton Classics Afternoon Tea

Macca

A timeless favourite, Macca has been a staple since our opening. Originally Sally’s creation, Chef Charlie’s twist adds mozzarella cheese and a delicious crumb topping, elevating this classic dish to new heights.

Peppy

Made with steak from Bannerman Butchers, drizzled with peppercorn sauce, what started as a weekend special became an instant hit and a menu mainstay. It’s so popular that many customers don’t even need to glance at the menu—they know Peppy is their go-to choice.

Breaded Haddock

Battered Haddock Castleton Classics Afternoon Tea Our fresh haddock from Stephens of Gourdon is coated in golden breadcrumbs for a satisfyingly simple and delicious meal. Served with tartare sauce featuring our hemp mayonnaise. Another menu mainstay, we’ll let the taste do the talking.

Cullen

Our Cullen Skink receives endless praise—it’s practically a meal in itself! Originally Sally’s recipe, Chef Charlie adds leek for a delightful twist that keeps it a firm favourite among our customers.

Balmoral Panini

This panini incorporates our famous Peppy sauce with chicken and haggis, creating a mouth-watering delight that pays homage to Scotland’s rich culinary tradition.

Blueberry, Apple & Ginger Chutney

Created by Sally in 2013, this chutney was an instant hit, selling out at its launch at The Taste of Grampian. Since then, we’ve expanded our range using our own berries as a base, ensuring that each jar is bursting with flavour and goodness.

Hemp Oil Mayonnaise

From our 2020 hemp harvest, we’ve crafted our own culinary oil. Now, our Hemp Oil Mayonnaise, used in our café since February 2024, will be available in retail jars from June, allowing customers to enjoy its unique taste and health benefits at home.

Scones

Our recipe, dating back to May 2008 and originating from Michelle, our original Baker, has been passed down through the years. Now, Lisa, Leanne, Linda, Heather, and Angela, who have all contributed their baking skill and expertise to Castleton, create our wonderful cake selection. This ensures that each scone strikes the perfect balance of lightness and flavour.

Strawberry Tarts Castleton Classics Strawberry Tart

THE favourite! We make thousands of these every year. We began making our own topping in 2014 when we realised that the standard topping we were buying in didn’t contain any berries! Anna was horrified at this and set about creating our own with berries grown and picked at our farm. We now make and sell the tart glaze in retail bottles and for food service, ensuring that each tart is bursting with the fresh taste of summer.

Meringues

Our huge meringues, filled with fresh cream and topped with seasonal fruits, are a Castleton favourite, offering a delightful combination of sweetness and lightness that never fails to impress.

Shortbread

An unchanged original recipe that has stood the test of time, our shortbread is a testament to the timeless appeal of simple, buttery goodness.

Traybakes

Our range has evolved over the years with each baker bringing their unique recipes. Classics like Millionaire shortbread, rocky road, peppermint slice and lemon & coconut grace our selection, offering something for every taste and craving.

Leanne’s Tablet

Starting as a waitress in 2008, Leanne’s journey led her to become our Baker for 10 years. Her Tablet recipe is now a top seller in our farm shop, a sweet reminder of the passion and dedication that goes into every dish at Castleton Farm.

Alongside the afternoon tea, you have the option to choose between tea or coffee to accompany your meal, or indulge in a refreshing Castleton fruit smoothie!
