Afternoon Tea

Tea, sandwiches … and cake!

Afternoon Tea was initially developed as a private social event for ladies who climbed the echelons of society. It was only when Queen Victoria engaged in the Afternoon Tea ritual that it became a formal occasion on a larger scale, known as ‘tea receptions’.

In Britain today Afternoon Tea is usually enjoyed as an occasional indulgence or to celebrate a special event. Our Afternoon Teas are held in high regard – we served almost 30,000 last year alone!

With a variety of finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones, sumptuous cakes and prices starting at £25; you’ll be hard pushed to find a grander Afternoon Tea experience.
