Afternoon Tea can take place in one of our intimate lounges or in our restaurant. In the summer months, and weather permitting, why not enjoy your afternoon tea in the sunshine on our open-air terrace?
Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 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. The Duchess asked that a tray of tea, bread and butter (some time earlier, the Earl of Sandwich had had the idea of putting a filling between two slices of bread) and cake be brought to her room during the late afternoon. This became a habit of hers and she began inviting friends to join her.
Fun fact – it was the Earl of Sandwich who inspired the British love of sandwiches by introducing a filling between two slices of bread!
