Did you know that afternoon tea was introduced in 1840 by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford? Needing to fill a gap between the late evening meal and lunch, afternoon tea was born!

Enjoy yours in the elegant surrounds of Missenden Abbey followed by a walk around the lovely grounds in the picturesque Chilterns countryside.

All our afternoon tea menus are created with homegrown or locally sourced produce ensuring the freshest ingredients are used.
