A Little History...

High Tea isn a classic afternoon tea offered in the British colonies and best enjoyed in a setting reminiscent of the era, such as a heritage homestead like Ravensthorpe. The Duchess of Bedford (1788) fell faint in the afternoons whilst awaiting dinner, so called for the maids to deliver refreshments to be served to her, and her lady friends on the High Dining Table. So popular was the idea that the tradition of inviting friends and family to High Tea was born.

An elegant way to celebrate a birthday, retirement, baby shower or hen's party, High Tea at Ravensthorpe is also a great excuse to catch up with friends and family to enjoy scrumptious fare, made in house by our dedicated Pastry Chef.

Strawberry Champagne or Mocktail on arrival and a selection of Finger Sandwiches, Savoury Canap├ęs, Fresh Scones w/ Jam & Cream and a selection of individually portioned tarts, cakes and desserts is followed by your choice of premium loose leaf teas or espresso coffee served in a beautiful range of fine china.

Hats, pearls and vintage ware to suit the theme are definitely welcome!
