Celebrate Afternoon Tea Week 2023
Get ready for an afternoon of sipping and savouring a variety of delightful blends and tasty treats. So, grab your friends, pour the tea, and let’s have a proper National Afternoon Tea Week celebration!
It’s time to channel your inner royalty! Whether you’re a fan of finger sandwiches, sweet treats or our favourite, scones, we have something to make your afternoon treat extra special. Afternoon Tea Week is the perfect excuse to indulge in the British tradition. Celebrated between 7 and 13 August 2023.
It is well known that the Duchess of Bedford is credited for creating the version of the afternoon tea we know and love in the 1840s. Finding the long stretch between lunch and dinner, the light meal of sandwiches and cakes, eaten with a pot of tea, was an excellent stand-in for the middle of the afternoon. She soon began inviting her friends to join her. But there are some other did you know facts about afternoon tea.
The average afternoon tea lasts about an hour and a half. But it can be as short as 45 minutes and as long as three hours. It all depends on how long you take to eat and if you pause in-between tiers. At times, you may be given a time limit by the restaurant. You should be informed when you book, which your host may re-iterate.
The Thomas Restaurant team likes to do it differently and guarantee a Taste of Wales in the afternoon tea selection. The traditional menu of delicious finger sandwiches, mouth-watering homemade cakes and handmade scones with lashings of clotted cream and jam is enhanced with Welsh products and ingredients.
Upgrade to include a G&T, cocktail, or bottomless Prosecco for £29 per person.
