Afternoon Tea

There is no more quintessential English ritual than the ceremony and serving of Afternoon Tea.

It is believed that credit for the custom of the Afternoon Tea goes to Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford in the early 19th century. The usual habit of serving dinner as late as 9pm left the Duchess hungry in the late afternoon. To stave off the hunger, she would order tea, bread and butter and cakes to be served in her room. This was thought to be an excellent idea and the habit caught on and the afternoon tea was born

Full Afternoon Tea

A selection of finger sandwiches to include ham, smoked salmon, egg and cress, a fruit scone with jam and clotted cream, chef ’s choice of dessert/cake served with tea or coffee. £14.00 per person

Cream Tea

A fruit scone with jam and fresh clotted cream, served with tea or coffee. £7.95

The quintessentially English tradition of Afternoon Tea can be enjoyed in The Conservatory or the Lounge Bar daily from 2.00pm to 5.00pm.
