Afternoon Tea

From Saturday, January 11, 2020 January 11, 2020 HOTEL DU PONT Every Wednesday, Saturday

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 Wednesday and Saturday, our menu faithfully follows the traditional combination of sweet and savory treats and homemade scones with clotted cream and jam. 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.
