Afternoon Tea Week

Thursday, July 11th, 2019

Afternoon Tea is a great part of British culture. Afternoon Tea was first introduced in the 1840’s by Anna the seventh Duchess of Bedford. One afternoon the Duchess became hungry and decided she would have a mini meal during the middle of the day. She then began to invite friends over to enjoy this late afternoon snack, hence the concept of Afternoon Tea was born.

A traditional Afternoon Tea consists of a pot of tea or coffee, a selection of sandwiches, an array of cakes and confectionery and of course freshly baked scones with cream and jam.

We offer Afternoon Tea at all our sites, so join us from the 12th of August until the 18th to celebrate this brilliant week. Enjoy a Traditional Afternoon Tea or a luxurious Afternoon Tea with a glass of fizz.

Please book your Afternoon Tea at least 24 hours in advance, however we will always try to accommodate requests at a shorter notice if possible.
