British Tea Times

Elevenses

 Traditional tea break at 11:00 a.m. that includes tea and typically a scone, biscuits or muffin.

 

Afternoon tea

Typically at 4:00 or 5:00 p.m. (dinner in Britain and the continent is usually not before 7:30 p.m.).  It is a leisurely affair, conducive to chatting, sipping
and sampling finger sandwiches, scones, macaroons and other treats.

 

High Tea

 It may be a surprise to learn that high tea originated with the working classes, who worked through what we consider

“lunch hour”.  High tea would be served at home after the workday at a table and now often includes soup

in addition to sweets and fruit.

 

We are also high on Special Events. Just ask.

We have a lot of great ideas to make your event extra - memorable.
