Saturdays 12:00 – 17:00


Afternoon tea was invented in Britain in the early 1840s. Well known for her hunger, the Duchess of Bedford introduced the mid-day snack to fill the gap between lunch and supper.

Her ritual was to have a pot of tea, some bread and butter, and something sweet to finish off her meal. The Duchess found the meal so pleasant, that she decided to invite guests over to join her, which is the story behind the well known social gathering we today call Afternoon Tea.

In modern times, Afternoon Tea has evolved into a proper social feast, with finger sandwiches, sweets and a pot of freshly brewed tea. If you are feeling fancy it might also be accompanied with something bubbly!
