Afternoon Tea venue in East Sussex

 

Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford is often credited with the invention of the English tradition of afternoon tea in the early 1840's. Dinner was traditionally served after 8.30 in the evening and the Duchess often became hungry, especially in the summer when dinner was served even later. She ordered a small meal of bread, butter and other niceties, such as cakes, tarts and biscuits, to be brought secretly to her boudoir. The concept of a small meal became popular and eventually known as "afternoon tea".
