Afternoon Tea in the Waterside Lounge…

Afternoon Tea and The Tale of Two Annas

Anna, Afternoon Tea and The History:

Cream Tea, High Tea and Afternoon Tea. These terms are peculiar to a couple of Island off the west coast of Europe and perhaps, are not understood elsewhere. In 1840 Anna, Duchess of Bedford gave us Afternoon Tea when she decided to make an occasion of it!

 

Anna, Afternoon Tea and The Waterside:

The other Anna, is our Anna…! Together with Amy, she runs our ‘All Fresh’ Pastry Kitchen in The Strawberry Tree. When both came to us with the idea of serving Afternoon Tea, we had no choice!
