The quintessentially British tradition of Afternoon Tea is said to have been invented in 1840 by Anna Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford. Quite often the Duchess would become hungry around 4 o’clock and would have a long wait for dinner to be served at 8pm. She began to request bread & butter, tea and cakes to be brought to her room late afternoon. This became a regular habit and she began to invite her friends over to join her. Thus the experience of ‘Afternoon Tea’ was born.

Almondine’s Afternoon Tea is lovingly handmade daily by our team of pastry chefs. We like to keep to tradition and serve an assortment of finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream & preserves, and the piece de resistance – seasonal patisserie miniatures. The colourful array of cakes are served on our fine, duck-egg blue china and copious amounts of tea and coffee can be enjoyed.
