Afternoon Tea was introduced to England in the  early 1840s, a mini meal to stem the hunger and anticipation of an evening meal at 8pm. 

It all started in the 1800’s when Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford who, at the time was a close friend of Queen Victoria and a prominent figure within London society complained of “having that sinking feeling” during the late afternoon.

There are no hard and fast rules on what should accompany the ritual tea, but most commonly it will be accompanied by a selection of Teas or Coffee, Homemade Scones, Clotted Cream & Preserves and a variety of Delicate Cakes & Finger Sandwiches.

With so many places to choose from for afternoon tea in and around West Berkshire, why not indulge in a little bit of English tradition in a lovely English setting
