Afternoon Tea at Browns
Afternoon Tea is a tradition that first appeared in the early 1840s in England. It is believed that Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, complained of a 'sinking feeling' in the afternoon. The Duchess started to have a pot of tea and small snack in her bedroom in the late afternoon and 'Afternoon Tea' was born. The craze soon spread across London where society ladies gathered to enjoy finger sandwiches and cakes.
Spring and Summer are the most perfect times of year to enjoy Afternoon Tea; and what setting could be more perfect that Browns at the Quay? Relax after a hard day's shopping at Worcester's most prestigious venue. Whether sitting on the terrace in warmer weather or within the restaurant itself you can enjoy incredibly views of the River Severn. Is there anything quainter than watching swans swim past as you sip your Darjeeling?
The menu offers a range of options starting with the 'Cream Tea'; a fresh scone with clotted cream, jam and loose-leaf tea from only £6. Afternoon Tea arrives on a three-tiered stand with finger sandwiches, fresh scones and cakes prepared each day by the pastry team. This comes with tea, or we have the option to add Prosecco or Champagne if you wish to add a little extra sparkle to the day!
Afternoon Tea at Browns at the Quay is the perfect time to celebrate a birthday, engagement, hen do or baby shower.
