Afternoon tea & cream teas are the most quintessential of English customs, perhaps surprisingly, a relatively new tradition. No visit to Herefordshire is complete without indulging in the Great British tradition of afternoon tea. With lots of venues to choose from ranging from luxury 5-star hotels to quaint traditional tearooms, we have something to suit every occasion and pocket!

Take mum feel extra special on Mother’s Day with some baked treats – there is everything from scones to slices of cupcakes to cookies. Some venues even offer hampers you can take on a picnic.

Are you looking for an excuse to spend an afternoon relaxing and catching up with loved ones? Indulge in an assortment of delicate finger sandwiches, plain & fruit scones with clotted cream & seasonal preserves, a carefully hand-picked array of gorgeous cakes and fancies. Served with fresh tea & coffees. Some also offer a luxury gift experience which is afternoon tea with fizz, this one is for me!

For a decadent delight why not try a sumptuous afternoon tea at Longworth Hall Hotel. Indulge in an array of mouth-watering sandwiches on granary bread, sweet scones, Cornish clotted cream and a delicate macaroons selection. Prosecco is also available.

Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. The Duchess would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o’clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner. The Duchess asked that a tray of tea, bread and butter (some time earlier, the Earl of Sandwich had had the idea of putting a filling between two slices of bread) and cake be brought to her room during the late afternoon. This became a habit of hers and she began inviting friends to join her.
