THE
VIC TORIA
TERR ACE
AFTERNOON TEA
BY T HE SE A
AF TERNOON TEA
IS A BEAUTIFUL RITUAL
A celebration of tea and its theatre, accompanied by delicate
treats of delicious sandwiches, pastries and cakes.
It is said that this ceremony began once upon a time during the
early nineteenth century, when it was more usual to consume only
breakfast and an evening dinner each day.
The 7th Duchess of Bedford experienced some feelings
of weariness during the mid-afternoon, and so would partake
of a light snack and a pot of tea.
She began inviting friends to join her and, usually held in the
drawing room, it became very fashionable. This was the perfect
solution to the mid-afternoon slump, and so the trend
caught on and is still with us today.
Should you have any food allergies or intolerances, please speak
to your server who will be delighted to help you.
Please note that a discretionary service charge of 10% will be added to your bill.
Served in the Victoria Terrace Monday to Friday at 2.30pm and 4.30pm
Saturday and Sunday at 12.30pm, 2.30pm and 4.30pm
