Afternoon Tea…

Afternoon Tea

The afternoon tea was created in the early 19th century by Anna the 7th duchess of Bedford. And it progressed from there.

Afternoon tea was lightly successful in the Victorian era, when ladies would use it to impress their friends, and compete for more elaborate cakes & fancies.

The afternoon tea has had a massive revival all thanks mainly to the great british bake off. Although the Ritz in London, Fortnum & Mason & Betty’s tea rooms in Yorkshire have always capitalized on this phenomenon. At the Woodcote our afternoon teas have grown over the past year and we are proud of the fact that we can cater for all dietary situations. Our chef’s produce amazing cakes & pastries, all baked in our kitchens.

Lee’s Macaroons are to die for & Karl has mastered the brownie to perfection. We also offer a good range of sandwiches & as much tea and coffee as you can drink all for £11.95. You can make your afternoon tea even more special by adding a glass of bubbly & if the weather is nice you can enjoy the pleasure of our beautiful Victorian walled garden.
