The afternoon tea at Bailbrook House Hotel is based on years of tradition that began in 1706 when Thomas Twining set up as a tea merchant on 216 the Strand in London.

The history of Afternoon Tea

Before the 19th century tea was taken as a digestive drink at any time of the day. Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford is responsible for the “ritual” of the afternoon tea at the beginning of the 19th century.
