Afternoon Tea was introduced by The 7th Duchess of Bedford in the early 19th century when it was usual to just consume breakfast and dinner. She was said to experience feelings of light headedness, mid afternoon and to overcome this she partook in a light snack and a pot of tea. She then began inviting friends to join her and it soon became very fashionable
This delightful treat is still enjoyed today as a social pastime and is fit for any occasion.
At Metrodeco we make it a celebration of tea and its theatre as much as the delightful, dainty treats of sandwiches, scones and cakes.
We bake in-house and also use dedicated bakers and suppliers from around our city to bring you the very best in sweet and savoury treats. We cater for most dietary requirements including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free.
To accompany your Afternoon Tea we have a full range of teas supplied by MDTEA and we like to say there is a blend for all tastes and occasions. We offer unlimited tea, so you can either work your way through our menu, or keep your favourite blend topped up.
If tea isn’t quite your thing, then we will happily have our barista prepare you a coffee instead.
