Indulge in a delectable afternoon tea in our Lounge and relaxing sofas and treat your taste buds to a sweet sensation. Our elegant white china and bright, airy atmosphere evoke the fresh ambience of a bygone era to complete a perfect day in Inverness.
Fit for a Duchess
The tradition of afternoon tea began in the early 19th 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 simply a catch up with old friends, we are proud to carry on this tradition. Our original 18th-century mansion house is the perfect setting to enjoy a leisurely afternoon.
