It doesn’t get more quintessentially British than afternoon tea, which dates back to the 1840's when afternoon tea was first introduced by Anna the 7th Duchess of Bedford. She used to complain of hunger pains in the early afternoon so she decided to schedule a time to take tea and a snack. This summer practice proved so popular that the Duchess continued it when she returned to London, sending cards to her friends asking them to join her for "tea and a walking the fields."
Therefore we have decided to offer this afternoon delight here at The Armoury. Served from Monday to Saturday, 2pm until 5pm. We’ve 3 tiers of delights, including freshly made finger sandwiches, a selection of cakes and scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam. Served with a pot of tea or coffee for two.
