Afternoon Tea

Rediscover the sheer indulgence of a traditional afternoon tea in Birmingham 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 inviting her friends to join her for her additional meal in her room at Belvior Castle.The traditional afternoon tea was born - and has become a British institution.
Whilst we can't promise liveried footmen we can offer a little luxury & indulgence. That's a thought that is guaranteed to lift your spirits. Naughty.....but very, very nice!
