Afternoon Tea Nottingham
Afternoon tea is a great British tradition but, although we have been enjoying a cup of tea in England since the 1660s, the much-loved addition of sandwiches and cake was first introduced in 1840 by Anna the Seventh Duchess of Bedford who got rather peckish each day around 4 o’clock in the afternoon. These days, elaborate afternoon tea has been replaced by a quick tea-bag cuppa and a dry biscuit. However, if you want to partake in proper afternoon tea, Nottingham boasts the stunning Byron’s Brasserie at the Colwick Hall Hotel.
At the Colwick Hall Hotel in Nottingham, afternoon tea is something of an event. Our traditional afternoon tea consists of a selection of mouthwatering finger sandwiches, unique chef’s savouries and a selection of cakes and desserts, including of course the hallowed scone with jam and clotted Cornish cream. Guests can relax and enjoy their afternoon in the stately surroundings of Byron’s Brasserie and enjoy the atmosphere of the stately Colwick Hall Hotel, once home to Lord Byron the great poet himself.
