Afternoon Tea at the Mytton & Mermaid

We are delighted to say Afternoon Tea has come to The Mytton & Mermaid. Available from Monday to Friday between 3pm and 4pm.
The ritual of Afternoon Tea owes its origins to Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford. As a young women in the early 1800s she lived during a time when it was common to eat only 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 with the tradition of this delightful mid-afternoon pause and are proud to offer Afternoon Tea here at The Mytton & Mermaid.
Our Afternoon Tea includes sandwiches, cakes and home made scones with clotted cream served with a pot of tea or coffee. This is priced at £24.95 for one, or you can add a little sparkle with our Prosecco Afternoon Tea for £31.95. (We are able to cater for gluten free diets but unfortunately unable to adapt to vegan or for those with a dairy intolerance). We require 24 hours advance booking notice to prepare your afternoon tea.
Afternoon tea gift vouchers are also available to purchase here making a lovely present for loved ones or friends.
