Traditional High Tea

Traditional Hight Tea History

Bygone Beautys invite you to experience our Traditional High Tea - a true indulgence! Set to the tune of The Land of Hope & Glory, your waiter, complete with top hat and tails, will serve this decadent delight to your table with a degree of pomp and circumstance. Delivered silver service style on an elegantly decorated afternoon tea tray-mobile, it is an experience reminiscent of decades past when life was more leisurely.

Delicately presented on a triple-tier cake stand with fine bone china and quality cotton afternoon tea serviettes. Enjoy finely rolled crustless sandwiches, an assortment of homemade tea cakes and biscuits, topped off with homemade baby scones with freshly whipped cream and strawberry jam and accompanied by your choice of house tea or coffee.

Our Traditional High Tea is best experienced in the company of others and is served to a minimum of 2 persons. 

Bring your own (BYO) champagne for a completely decadent experience. Crystal champagne flutes are provided for a $2.20 corkage fee per person.

Traditional High Tea Supreme
