Afternoon Tea’s back on the Menu

posted in: About | 0

With Afternoon Tea Week over (10 -16th August) what is there to look forward to during September? Well there’s the annual London Open House free visits to some of the most stunning and intriguing historical and more recent buildings. There’s also a last chance to indulge in experiencing exquisite and unique Afternoon Teas before full price returns at the end of August.

My advice is to explore and indulge BEFORE the end of August when Rishi Sunak’s, “Eat out to help out” deal ends. So go out and indulge or order in and enjoy.


A quick social media search will confirm that there has been an explosion in the popularity of Afternoon Tea in recent years. It’s no wonder really, given the 165 million cups of tea we drink each day in the UK.

Afternoon Tea Week runs from 10-16 August and, like most events in 2020, things are a little different this year. While some venues are open to enjoy treats, tea and tipples, others will be opting for takeaway and delivery alternatives.

With lockdown easing and shielding paused, the ability to get together seems like more of a luxury than ever. That’s why we think this year’s Afternoon Tea Week is not just an opportunity to enjoy some tea and cakes (although it’s definitely a bonus), but also a chance to reach out and reconnect with older friends, relatives and neighbours.


Afternoon Tea Week is a celebration of one of the nation’s favourite traditions. In 2020 it takes place from 10th to 16th August.

Whether enjoyed in a 5-star hotel, or as a home baked treat, the British love the combination of savoury and sweet treats, accompanied by some of the 165 million cups of tea we drink each day in the UK.
