Afternoon Tea is a ritual introduced in the early 1840s amongst British aristocracy. It evolved as a mini meal to stem the hunger and anticipation of an evening meal at 8pm.
Nowadays, Afternoon Tea is usually enjoyed as an occasional luxury for the British; a treat in a Country House Hotel, perhaps to celebrate a birthday or special occasion!
At Offley Place, we like to uphold this timeless British tradition, where we offer our guests the perfect environment to relax and indulge in the pleasures of homemade cakes, scones, pastries, tarts and sandwiches, we well as a selection of all your favourite teas.
Whether you are celebrating a birthday, an anniversary or simply treating a loved one, Afternoon Tea at Offley Place promises to delight!
