Mother’s Day is coming up on March 15 and what better way can there be to show your mum how much you appreciate her, than by treating her to an indulgent Afternoon Tea.
There can be few things more quintessentially British than Afternoon Tea. The tradition derives from the early 19th century when the Duchess of Bedford looked to fill the gap between lunch and dinner with a light meal of tea, cakes and sandwiches to starve off hunger. The idea proved so popular that it soon became an established social occasion amongst “fashionable society” and today it is more popular than ever as a treat for everyone.
Here at The Pheasant, in the surroundings of our traditional Lakeland inn, you can indulge in an afternoon tea which not only has delicate sandwiches, the freshest scones, the sweetest baked treats and tea served in fine china but is served to you in one of our cosy lounges which are full of character. Or if the weather is warmer, you can enjoy your tea in our beautiful gardens that extend towards a babbling beck and the majestic Sale fell.
We think this is a perfect way to let your mum know how really special she is. Prices for Afternoon Tea start at £14.50 and vouchers are also available as presents if you don’t know which date you want to come. Find out more here: http://www.the-pheasant.co.uk/food-and-drink/afternoon-tea
