The tradition of afternoon tea began in the early nineteenth century when the Duchess of Bedford, experiencing a “sinking feeling” requested that a light afternoon tea be served in her private rooms. The Duchess found the experience so satisfying that she soon invited her friends to join her. This led to afternoon tea becoming a regular indulgence. Whether it’s a celebration or a catch up with old friends, we are proud to carry on this tradition. Our original Knowes is the perfect setting to enjoy a leisurely afternoon. So, join us at the Knowes Hotel for a cuppy , available 7 days with a minimum of 48 hours advance notice.
