Invented in the 1800s by the seventh Duchess of Bedford to stop her hunger pangs between lunch and dinner, afternoon tea has become quite the thing to do for a leisurely couple of hours in Edinburgh, and one of the nicest ways to spend time with friends, colleagues or loved ones.
The Edinburgh Residence was made for afternoon tea. Built during the Victorian era as a series of town houses in the Edinburgh’s West End, it has seen many a polite tea party in its time.
We’ve kept this ambience alive, to enable you to enjoy some delicious afternoon sweets and savouries in peaceful, elegant surroundings with your favourite people (but without the stiff collars and corsets).
The menu is served between 1pm and 5pm.
Priced £16.95 per person.
Served on a traditional three tier silver cake stand, our Afternoon Tea includes:
Selection of freshly made, crust-less sandwiches served on whole meal or white bread
Homemade scones served with Tiptree jams and clotted cream
Homemade cream cakes and tray bakes
All served with your choice of tea and freshly brewed coffee.
Why not spoil yourself and upgrade to Champagne Afternoon Tea for £25.95 per person.
Gluten free Afternoon Tea also available (advance notice required).
