Q Station Manly has launched a new dining concept, G&Tea House, serving high tea with a sophisticated twist. The venue – a restored cottage with views overlooking Sydney Harbour – sits high on the headland at the former Quarantine Station in North Head.
As the name suggests, the G&Tea House high tea experience comes with a hint of gin.
Q Station Manly have partnered with Manly Spirits to create a menu of tea-infused gin cocktails. These include, Gran’s Remedy with Australian Dry Gin, organic elderflower syrup, lemon juice, sparkling water and dehydrated apple; and the Coast Garden featuring gin, chamomile liqueur, chamomile syrup, lemon juice and cucumber.
Also on the beverage menu, will be a selection of award-winning De Beaurepaire wines and fancy sodas. As well as all traditional tea and coffee options.
As for the food, there are four high tea options to choose from – all of which include a selection of petit cakes, sweet and savoury pastries, finger sandwiches and scones. Children are welcome at the G&Tea House too with the option to order from a special kids menu.
To add to the charm, the Q Station Manly G&Tea House has been decorated with whimsical paper art and historic heritage pieces from the 1800s. Other quaint touches include vintage teacups and cocktails served in old-fashioned glassware.
The G&Tea House is open Friday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm and bookings are essential. Those visiting on a Saturday afternoon can also live music from Q Station’s popular Sunset Sessions.
