The High Tea British tradition is a late-afternoon or early evening meal, usually quite substantial. It originated in the 19th century as a simple, early workingman’s supper. High tea can be served buffet-style or at table. It includes a variety of dishes such as various meat and fish dishes along with buns, scones, crumpets, biscuits and jams, as well as assorted sweets and, of course, lots of hot, steaming tea. (Robin’s Nest includes a complementary Port and/or Sherry). We’ve included one of our menus below. The cost is $75.00 per person plus gratuity and tax. It’s really quite a spread and an unforgettable meal for Americans. A High Tea is a superbly original idea for that special person in your life.
