From delicate finger sandwiches to freshly baked patisserie treats, afternoon tea at Barnett Hill Hotel is the perfect indulgence. We have three different afternoon tea experiences available here and they can be enjoyed either in our cosy lounges or (weather permitting) on our beautiful garden terrace with a glass of perfectly chilled Champagne.

The concept of Afternoon Tea was founded in 1840 by the Duchess of Bedford, who found herself hungry between the long period of time between lunch and her fashionably late supper. The Duchess would request a tray of tea, bread and butter to be brought to her in the late afternoon. She later asked friends to join her for this occasion and thus a tradition was born.

Fun fact – it was the Earl of Sandwich who inspired the British love of sandwiches by introducing a filling between two slices of bread!
