Afternoon Tea

What better place to enjoy this fine tradition than in the lounge of this historic country house?

The origins of afternoon tea can be traced back to 1840, when Anna Maria, the Seventh Duchess of Bedford, is said to have experienced a ‘sinking feeling’ between light luncheon and her evening meal. To relieve her hunger pangs she requested a pot of tea and a little light refreshment, and as the ritual caught on with friends, afternoon tea was born. And what better place to enjoy this wonderful treat than in Rookery Hall?

Treat yourself to a truly memorable afternoon tea in Cheshire whether you take it in the Drawing Room with its open fires or in our stunning gardens with commanding views of the Cheshire countryside.
