Afternoon Tea
When booking with us you MUST state any dietary requirements (including if you are vegetarian/gluten free or vegan) at the booking process or we may NOT BE ABLE to cater for these needs on the day.

Our Afternoon Tea is served on three tier stands (unless you have separate dietary requirements) and is a delicious mix of sweet and savoury treats made in house and from dedicated bakers in Brighton and Hove. We use the freshest possible ingredients and look to use seasonal produce so our products are subject to change.

Our Afternoon Tea comes with a choice from over thirty blends of loose leaf tea from our sister company MDTea or filter coffee- as much as you like, and is also available with a Sussex sparkling wine, a local gin and tonic or one of our very own tea cocktails. We also have a great selection of beer and ale if that is your tipple.

Larger groups (over 7) must pay in a single transaction.

Many thanks, and we look forward to seeing you!
-Team Metrodeco

Lovely gin afternoon tea, visited here twice in two weeks and will definitely be returning. Staff were very attentive and the food delicious! They had a huge selection of teas. Recommend the Masala Chai.

A very special place to spend an afternoon with loved ones. The guys running it were super helpful and friendly without being in your face! Regulars popped in for takeouts and were genuinely welcomed, as were their dogs.
We left happy and relaxed…thank you so much.

Had an afternoon tea at metro deco. It was amazing. I had the veggie option and my boyfriend had the normal one. They were super tasty. Tried some of the tea and would deffo recommend the chai masala. Great time and very filling.

From the first moment we walked in the door the service we received was warm and welcoming. We had two people with special dietary requirements however, their afternoon tea was just as lovely as the normal afternoon tea. The food was delicious and the portions were so generous that we had to take home our cakes.
Overall, we thought the customer service was outstanding, we felt well looked after and the food was superb. We would highly recommend Metro Deco.

Great food but poor service. Only three tables in the room but we had to flag one of the staff down every time we wanted anything. It felt like they were purposely avoiding us and that we were annoying them. Such a shame as we were celebrating a birthday and the afternoon tea was a gift. Probably wouldn't come back or recommend unfortunately.

Lovely place for afternoon tea. The sandwiches took a little while to come although they had said they were already for us then one sandwich was a little dry but soon rescued by being eaten. Delicious and lovely atmosphere. Highly recommend. Book it!

I love Metrodeco and have been there many times. Afternoon was ok - my daughter found a hair in her coronation chicken sandwich and the sausages rolls would have been a lot nicer warmed up instead of served cold and grey. Generally everything was quite nice however, I feel like the place was looking very tired - the window near wehere we were sat was full of dust and cobwebs and the plant looked like it had a family of spiders in it - just seems like it needs a good clean and a bit of TLC Apart from that it was good value for money.

Fun and quirky venue with very friendly staff. Afternoon Tea was very pleasant and good value. Only criticism was the scones were quite small and bit hard. Otherwise very nice sandwich selection and good value for the price.

Very friendly service, lovely selection of teas. the food was very nice, I perhaps would have liked a ‘dantier’ selection of cakes but that’s just me! Impressed with dietary requirements being catered for, lovely little spot.

Celebrated my partners 30th Birthday with an afternoon Tea. The team are very welcoming and polite. The vegan options are very good and the tea selection is amazing! Over 25 to chose from if I remember right. Would definitely come back again, even if just for a tea or coffee.

The service was truly outstanding. The staff went above and beyond to cater to our needs. The food was incredible and all their 'free from' options were amazing! Couldn't recommend this place more highly for a great afternoon or a special event

Really lovely surroundings, we felt very comfortable as soon as we walked in. Great food, we had the afternoon tea. Sandwiches were delicious, the scones, cakes and macaroons were so good!! We had 1 vegetarian afternoon tea and 2 classic afternoon teas, between us we would recommend them both. My favourite item…… all of it!! We will visit again.

Fantastic experience, afternoon tea for six people, catering for no less than five different diets! All absolutely delicious, we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed, and they did an amazing job at dealing with all our dietary needs. The tea choice is second to none and we all enjoyed exploring the tea menu. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely Afternoon tea. The service was excellent and the sandwiches, snacks and cakes plentiful for two. The scones with clotted cream and home made jam were delicious! A very relaxing afternoon with a lovely ambience and attentive but not invasive staff. This was our second visit and will definitely return.

Our time at Metrodeco was lovely, with outstanding service and delicious food, and the cocktails are definitely worth trying! Perhaps the high tea menu could be slightly cheaper but overall great experience, I would recommend.

Visited for a post-lockdown treat. Covid regulations all followed well while still managing to create a lovely experience. Afternoon tea was lovely - no complaints. Even better than the last time I came so I think they've tweaked their offerings slightly and for the better. Carrot cake was the bomb.
