Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea, that most quintessential of English customs is, perhaps surprisingly, a relatively new tradition. Whilst the custom of drinking tea dates back to the third millennium BC in China and was popularised in England during the 1660s by King Charles II and his wife the Portuguese Infanta Catherine de Braganza, it was not until the mid 19th century that the concept of ‘afternoon tea’ first appeared.

Our Afternoon Teas include freshly-made sandwiches on white and brown loaf, fresh cheese and fruit scones served with butter, Rodda's clotted cream and Wilkins Strawberry Jam, followed by freshly baked cakes and loaves and a generous pot of Yorkshire Tea or coffee.

£18.00 per person
