Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea was introduced in England by Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford in the year of 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.

  • Afternoon Tea is served at 1pm to 4pm everyday from £21.50 per person. 

A Cream Tea is also available with scones, jam, clotted cream and tea or coffee at £9.50 per person.
