***Please note: During December Afternoon Tea will not be being served on Saturdays***
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 now proud to offer afternoon tea here at the Red Fox. We serve Monday to Saturday, 2-5pm and booking is advisable, especially on Saturdays. Gift vouchers are also available.
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 £14.95 for one, or £29.90 for two. For those who would like further refreshment, we've decided on a Prosecco option, £36.95 for two, or one of our very own Red Fox G&T's each at £39.95.
