English tradition at its finest

Coffee in a pot, scones with cream and jam, shiny cutlery and lapping sound of water... nothing could be more British than afternoon tea at Strawberry Hill, Penang. English tradition at its finest – David Brown’s serves the best afternoon tea in Penang.

We were delighted to be able to go to Strawberry Hill again for Penang’s finest venue for afternoon tea for the second time. Luxurious, elegant and perfect every day. David Brown’s highly sought after afternoon tea is a mouth-watering and utterly English meal of a choice of finest English tea, a delicious array of finger sandwiches, a selection of savoury pies, light & crusty scones with strawberry preserve and Devonshire clotted cream. The time-honoured tradition of afternoon tea may be enjoyed if you have an afternoon to spare. You can leisurely savour one of the most established of English rituals just as if you were in Britain.

To complement these delicious scones, the wide-ranging tea selection runs from Earl Grey to Camomile. All in all, an exquisite afternoon of tea with an elegant setting and gracious hospitality.
