Afternoon Tea in Birmingham
Rediscover the sheer indulgence of a traditional afternoon tea
at the Plough and Harrow Hotel.
The tradition of the afternoon tea dates back to the 18th Century when one of Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting, Anna Stanhope (the Duchess of Bedford) complained of a little 'sinking feeling' at about four o'clock in the afternoon. To revive herself, the Duchess had her servants bring her a pot of tea and a few breadstuffs and then soon began iniviting her friends to join her for her additional meal in her room as Belvior Castle.
The traditional afternoon tea was born - and has become a British institution.
Whlist we can't promise liveried footmen we can offer a little luxury for under £10.
That's a thought that is gauranteed to lift yoiur spirits.
Naughty.............but very, very nice!
