It doesn't get more quintessentially Britsih than an Afternoon Tea. Now available Monday to Friday between 2pm and 5pm.
The ritual of Afternoon Tea owes its origins to Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford. As a young woman in the early 1800's she lived during a time when it was common to only eat two main meals a day with breakfast scheduled early in the morning and dinner occurring late in the evening. Weakened and irritated by hunger pangs each day, she decided to schedule time to take tea and snack each afternoon.
Taking inspiration from this, we decided to continue this delightful mid-afternoon pause and are now excited to offer Afternoon Tea here at The Hand and Trumpet.
Our Afternoon Tea includes a selection of sandwich's, cakes and home made scones with clotted cream and a choice of English Breakfast Tea or coffee. Or add a little sparkle with our Fizz and G&T Afternoon Tea options.
Please note we do need 24 hours notice. To book please call 01270 820048 or book via our website and pop 'Afternoon Tea' in the booking notes. Afternoon Tea Vouchers are also available below which make a fantastic treat for loved ones or friends.
