Afternoon Tea is the Ultimate Indulgence
Afternoon Tea is the ultimate indulgence, made famous by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840.
The Duchess would find herself hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon due the long period between lunch and the fashionably late dinner which was usually served around 8pm. She began to request a tray of tea, bread and butter, and cake be brought to her room and after a while this habit became so relaxing and indulgent that she invited the other ladies of the area to join her.
Today, at Dunkeld House Hotel, we have upheld this ritual and serve our Afternoon Tea in the traditional manner of dainty sandwiches, sweet treats, small savouries and endless pots of piping hot tea. Of course, the Duchess missed one key ingredient to the ultimate enjoyment, a glass of Prosecco, which we offer as an option to guests enjoying this most British of traditions.
Afternoon Tea is served from 12 noon to 4pm each day.
£15 per person
