Matilda has been brought to life through iconic adaptations for the stage and screen – and now, for the first time, through food.

The Matilda Afternoon Tea, a dining experience inspired by the story, will be available at all five Luxury Family Hotels properties: Fowey Hall in South Cornwall, Moonfleet Manor on the Jurassic Coast, New Park Manor in the New Forest, The Ickworth near Bury-st-Edmunds and Woolley Grange near Bath. The tea, available for fans of all ages, can be booked online from 21st March 2022. 

The experience includes both an adult and children’s menu and has been expertly crafted to celebrate the story’s most delicious moments, from the cosy after-school sharing of bread and margarine in Miss Honey’s cottage, to Bruce’s unforgettable battle with an enormous chocolate cake – and of course, who could forget the newt slipped into the Trunchbull’s water jug?

The magic starts with a selection of carefully curated sandwiches followed by delicious sweet treats and homemade scones alongside a selection of teas, coffees and – of course – newt juice! And, as an extra treat, a recipe for Luxury Family Hotels’ take on Bruce Bogtrotter’s chocolate cake is also tucked into the menu. 

For families wanting to make the most of their Matilda experience, Luxury Family Hotels offers the ‘Magical Matilda Escape’ overnight stay package at all five properties, carefully curated to include the Matilda Afternoon Tea with activity sheets for younger guests, overnight family accommodation, a delicious "full works' breakfast the morning before guests depart, and a Matilda book to take home.  

The Matilda Afternoon Tea launches on 26th April 2022 and will be available at all five Luxury Family Hotels for £15 per child and £35 per adult.
