WELCOME TO AFTERNOON TEA WITH UPSTAIRS AT INSTITUTION
IT IS WITH GREAT PLEASURE that we welcome you to Afternoon Tea. The creation of this thoroughly English institution is credited to a lifelong friend of Queen Victoria, Anna Maria Russell, who was looking for a means of avoiding hunger pangs in the long gap between an early lunch and a late supper.
We firmly believe that this delightful aspect of our nation’s culinary heritage, which has continued for for the best part of 150 years, should be upheld.
Of course we aim to remain faithful to the classic combination of finger sandwiches, scones, and sweet pastries accompanied by a selection of wonderful tea.
Your afternoon tea is served traditionally, in our beautifully decorated boutique cafe, ensuring this remains relaxing experience. If there’s anything more you’d like to know, don’t hesitate to ask. All that remains is for us to wish you a wonderful afternoon.
Whether you’re meeting up with friends, treating yourself & others or celebrating a special occasion we’d love to welcome you.
You can book your afternoon tea by calling us on 01677 425541 or popping in to the store.You can also purchase gift vouchers, an afternoon tea would make a wonderful surprise. We prepare each afternoon tea specifically for you so a minimum of 24 hours notice is required for your booking.
