Have you ever felt that “sinking feeling”; that emptiness that occurs in the late afternoon with dinner still some way off? The 7th Duchess of Bedford in the early 19th Century came up with a solution that we all enjoy today, a pot of fragrant tea with delicious light cakes, pastries and sandwiches. Today as then, social hostesses enjoy afternoon tea as a way of gathering to enjoy a little social gossip whilst sipping tea and nibbling sandwiches in the middle of the afternoon.
Afternoon Tea is often be seen as a bit of luxury, a birthday treat or a surprise for friends and here at Knockderry Country House Hotel we offer all of the trappings of this little piece of yesteryear and luxury but at a very affordable price. Our luxury afternoon tea, consists of a selection of delicious homemade finger sandwiches and cakes including French macaroons, miniature éclairs, fruit scones with cream and jam and if you really want to make a celebration of it add a glass of fizz and you too can feel like a duchess…or even a princess!
Knockderry Country House Hotel is offering from the 29th April – 2 May, a Royal Afternoon Tea to celebrate the forthcoming royal wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton on the 29th April. For more details please call us on 01436 842 283.
