Tradition of tea drinking

Tradition of Tea Drinking

Anna, 7th Duchess of Bedford, is reputed to have originated the idea of afternoon tea in the early 1800s. She conceived the idea of having tea around four or five in the afternoon to ward off the hunger pangs between lunch and dinner. Some time earlier, the Earl of Sandwich had the idea of putting a filling between two slices of bread. These habits soon became a good reason for social gatherings, and started a trend that is still very much a part of British life.

Afternoon Tea is recognized around the world as being something traditionally British.

Tips for dining

Tips for dining

  • By making lunch your main meal, it's often possible to take advantage of a special lunch or "prix fixe" menu.

  • Many restaurants in an around Theatreland offer a pre-theatre menu with two or three courses at a special price. Normally, you'll be expected to dine within a set time period (around an hour to 90 minutes maximum)

  • Many establishments will also automatically include a service charge which normally ranges from between 10-15%. You should therefore not pay an additional tip.

  • Where a service charge has not been included, leave a maximum 15% tip (unless you feel that a higher amount is appropriate).
