A delightful way to spend the afternoon.

Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the  seventh Duchess of  Bedford in 1840.  The Duchess would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o’clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner. The Duchess asked that a tray of tea, bread and butter (some time earlier, the Earl of Sandwich had had the idea of putting a filling between two slices of bread) and cake be brought to her room during the late afternoon. This became a habit of hers and she began inviting friends to join her.

Afternoon Tea

Our traditional Afternoon tea is served on a tiered stand and includes a selection of sandwiches, freshly baked scones with clotted cream & Tiptree jam, savouries, mini biscuits and homemade desserts.  All of this is served with a wide selection of award winning Novus tea.
