Bridal Showers

Let us make your shower a special intimate event


Bridal Showers| Dover NHBridal Showers are our specialty, our elegant inn needs no decorating except your personal touches as we are limited due to the historic nature of the inn with any type of decoration that could harm the integrity or original workmanship of the inn itself. We do not charge for the function itself but we do require that every guest order “The Duchess” which is priced at $26pp and our minimum guest requirement is 20 if you want the tea room closed to the public due to our usual bookings.

The formal Duchess of Bedford style of afternoon tea, is served on a 3 tiered cake stand. The lower tier is layered with savory tea sandwiches such as chicken tarragon with kiwi and grape, strawberry creamed cheese, cucumber & dill, egg & greens. The middle tier has a scone dusted with powdered sugar, served with lemon curd and Devonshire cream. Finally, the top tier has a selection of petite fours, small cakes and pastries. You may substitute a caprese or watermelon feta salad rather than a sandwich or two – we can also accommodate dietary restrictions as long as we know in advance.

We can serve this in two different styles, either a formal sit down up to 26 in our tea parlor or in our new function room for larger groups up to 60, whichever option works best for your group. In addition, we can also offer mimosas and wine if desired either through cash bar or ticket basis. We suggest coming by the inn to see its’ elegance and offerings! Have out of town guests coming for your event, have them stay here and book directly through us at a 10% discount! A non-refundable $300 deposit is required to hold your date and therefore applied to your final bill.

Want to do it all yourself? You can now rent our new space in the Carriage House for $200/hr. Some restrictions do apply.

I can’t say enough positive things about our experience with the tea house. My mother and I hosted my sister’s bridal shower here (about 25 adults) and from the beginning were very impressed with the owner’s (Pam) communication. Pam was very accommodating with our requests and flexible the day of the shower. She was a delight to work with and made us feel very calm and comfortable about the planning. The tea room was elegantly appointed, the food was authentic and delicious and the service was top notch. All of our guests truly enjoyed themselves and best of all the bride was ecstatic about the whole event!
