Afternoon Tea

The History of Afternoon Tea……….

The tradition of the afternoon tea dates back to the 18th Century when one of Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting, Anna Stanhope (the Duchess of Bedford) complained of a little 'sinking feeling' about four o'clock in the afternoon.

To revive herself, the Duchess had her servants bring
her a pot of tea and a few breadstuffs and then soon began inviting her friends to join her for her additional meal in
her room at Belvior Castle.
The traditional afternoon tea was born -

and has become a British institution.
Whilst we can't promise liveried footmen we can 
offer a little luxury & indulgence

That's a thought that is guaranteed to

lift your spirits

All tea's are served on china tea stands with an ecletic mix of traditional china cups, saucers & plates.
