Lake District Afternoon Tea Gift Vouchers- Plus Eat Free On Your Birthday!
If someone were to ask you to define being British in 60 seconds, chances are, the words ‘afternoon tea’ would be in the mix at some point.
Since its inception in the early nineteenth-century, it’s come to be regarded as somewhat of an institution in this country, associated with London’s fashionable society as a way to socialise with friends and neighbours.
It was introduced by the seventh Duchess of Bedford in order to fight the afternoon cravings between lunch and dinner and it became so popular that it wasn’t long before all the dainty ladies of England took up the habit!
Despite its origins in the genteel ranks, however, afternoon tea is now a delight to be enjoyed by everyone, whether it’s for a special occasion, such as an anniversary, or just as a treat after a hard week!
Here at Broadoaks, we pride ourselves on offering a beautiful traditional afternoon tea in the heart of the Lake District, served on a stunning three-tiered china set.
Although the fillings of our delicious sandwiches change according to the season, you can expect classics such as smoked salmon, tuna and cucumber, and cheese salad, amongst others.
Our sweet treats are similarly seasonal, but the typical fare consists of a Victoria sponge, tea loaf, and fresh scones with jam and cream, as well as a selection of homemade petit fours. And, as we’re committed to local producers, we try to source as many of our ingredients as possible from the Lake District itself!
This sumptuous feast is complemented by the range of specialist teas we have on offer, from Darjeeling to Earl Grey, which are in perfect accord with the flavours on the plate. Alternatively, you can opt for coffee or go all out with some fizz!
You can also give this experience as a wonderful gift with our Afternoon Tea for Two vouchers, which can be gifted alongside your own personalised message. You can choose from a traditional experience, a sparkling experience, or the deluxe Laurent Perrier experience, meaning you’re guaranteed to find the right fit for your loved one!
Plus, to top it all off, you can even eat free on your birthday! Just book in for your afternoon tea on the big day and we’ll serve you our full experience in the Orangery, completely free of charge!
So, if you fancy popping in for afternoon tea, give us a ring today! Alternatively, why not enquire about our exclusive hire to turn it into something truly special?
