The Common Room
Themed Afternoon Tea Experience

A new chapter in the Cutter & Squidge School of Wizardry and Alchemy begins soon...


After two years of bubbling cauldrons and whimsical wand waving, The Potion Room Afternoon Tea is wrapping up its final classes and greeting students for the last time until May 31st 2020.

But wizards and witches need not fear, as another part of the Cutter & Squidge School of Wizardry and Alchemy will soon be available to explore.

From June 2020, we are inviting the magically inclined amongst us to join fellow students in The Common Room!

What was once a dark, secret Potion Room, is now a homely space with a library corner and bar area, decorated with rugs, tapestry covered walls and cosy sofas. Feast on a scrumptious afternoon tea and solve a magical mystery… Clue-cracking, puzzle-breaking and teamwork are all required to unlock the secret of the Common Room.

Prices start from £44.50 for adults, £34.50 for kids. We also offer VIP tickets!

Looking to celebrate a special occasion? We have packages for hen parties, children’s parties, corporate day afternoon tea packages and more!

So, gather your coven and dust off your cloaks, The Common Room enrolment opens mid-March 2020 and is set to enchant all guests!


During your 1.5 hour experience, you will be treated to a delicious sweet and savoury Afternoon Tea inspired by classic British flavours. Your afternoon tea will be full to the brim with comfort food; think pies, sandwiches and toasties for savoury, and buttery scones, doughnuts, cakes and cookies for something sweet! 

Drinks that can be conjured up include hot chocolate from a cauldron, sodas, wines and mead.

We cater for many dietary requirements, including vegetarian, vegan, and wheat-free, and our vegetarian menu is halal-friendly.
