The origins of afternoon tea can be traced back to the early 19th century, when Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, began inviting friends to join her for tea and light refreshments in her private chambers during the long gap between lunch and dinner. 

The practice quickly became popular among the upper classes and eventually spread to the rest of society.

Nowadays, afternoon tea is often considered a luxurious and special occasion and can be enjoyed in many tea rooms, hotels, and other venues across the UK.

We understand the significance of afternoon tea very well.

It’s a deeply rooted part of British culture, seen as an essential element of British heritage and identity. This tradition, passed down through generations, is still cherished today.

Afternoon tea is also socially important. It’s a time when people come together to enjoy each other’s company, sharing tea and snacks. It’s a moment to relax, take a break, and step away from the day’s busyness.

Because of these reasons, we’re committed to offering a catering service that you and your guests will remember fondly for many years.

Our Afternoon Tea Services

Menu Preparation

We will start this process by gathering information. We will consult you to understand the preferences and dietary restrictions of you and your guests. We will ask you for more information on the occasion and theme, the number of guests you will have, and your budget.

Based on the information you have given us, we will make some recommendations for the menu. You are at liberty to incorporate these recommendations into the final menu or forge ahead with an idea of what you want. You can customise the menu to suit your and your guests’ tastes and dietary needs.

We offer various options for finger foods, sandwiches, scones and pastries, as well as different teas as a part of our London afternoon tea catering.

Deliver And Set Up Afternoon Tea

Our catering service prepares the food you have requested in advance before delivering them to the location of your choice. We deliver the food in refrigerated vehicles to ensure it stays fresh.

We prepare the tea at the location to make sure that it is as hot and as fresh as can be, ensuring that your guests experience the full flavour and aroma of the teas you have selected for them.

We will then set up everything; we will arrange the food on platters and tiered stands, set out cups and sauces, and provide teapots, milk just, and sugar bowls if you have rented them from us.

Equipment Rentals

We have a wide range of equipment available for rental, including glassware, cutlery and crockery. You can choose equipment that suits the overall theme and style of your afternoon tea.

Renting our equipment can be extremely cost-effective and convenient, especially if you do not have the necessary equipment or want to avoid the hassle of buying and storing a large amount of equipment.

We ensure that all our equipment is of high quality and that it is cleaned and sanitised before and after every event.
