Afternoon Tea

Invented by the seventh Duchess of Bedford to curb her hunger pangs between breakfast and dinner back in the 1800’s, afternoon tea has become quite the thing to do when enjoying a leisurely hour or two with your friends and loved ones. Enjoy the famous Howard afternoon tea served by our friendly team of butlers in our elegant dining rooms from 2pm -5pm daily.
