Holiday Afternoon Tea

December 1 - 24, 2019

It is said that Anna Russell, 7th Duchess of Bedford, invented Afternoon Tea in 1840. This was to satisfy her peckishness during the long wait between lunch and dinner. We are proud to continue this custom.

Prepared and served fresh each day, our menu faithfully follows the traditional combination of sweet and savory treats and homemade scones with clotted cream and jam. The ingredients include specialties from our pastry team that reflect our southern roots as well as time-honored British influence. At the heart of the experience is the drink itself. Choose from a variety of loose leaf teas including English blends and herbal infusions that will complement your food perfectly. Enjoy the company of family and friends and delight in the wonder of the holiday season.
