Take Time for Tea

 

Afternoon Tea parties are a great way to recognise a birthday, anniversary or baby shower. Savour the delights of this fine tradition for with a group of your friends and family in one of our private dining rooms.  For parties of 6 guests or more, sample our signature afternoon tea including carefully prepared pastries, dainty sandwiches and the finest leaf tea, served to perfection.

 

 

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".
