Afternoon Tea wasn’t invented in the 11th Century but came about because of Anna Russell.
The 7th Duchess of Bedford would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household
was served around at eight o’clock. Thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner. The Duchess
asked that a tray of tea, bread and butter and cake be brought to her room during the late afternoon. This became a habit of
hers and she began inviting friends to join her.
‘Tearooms’ were all the rage in the late 19th century. Quickly becoming THE place for meeting friends… just like
The Fizzy Tarté! However, they were also considered one of the few respectable places for women to meet
without a chaperone. Because of this, the out-of-home Afternoon Tea took off so quickly. Soon enough ‘tea dances’ were
being hosted at the most expensive hotels in the area.
“I cannot recommend the afternoon tea enough. We booked the Ultimate Indulgence for 5 and have to say I could not find fault with it. Simply the best I have ever had. The staff are welcoming and attentive and the decor oozes luxury and indulgence. I have tried the delights of the Samling, Storrs Hall and the Belsfield but this beats them all. Stunning cakes worthy of a Michelin Starred restaurant, sumptuous sandwiches and pink champagne to top it all off. If you are looking for the best Afternoon Tea in the Lake District, look no further.”
“Fizzy & Funky… The Fizzy Tarte is stylish and a great fun place to take afternoon tea with a difference. The patisserie was light and delicious, the finger sandwiches well filled and the profiteroles irresistible. And, of course, you just have to take a glass or two of Prosecco to make it a memorable occasion!”
“Champagne and afternoon tea – perfect! The most perfect way to spend an afternoon catching up with a friend – we ordered the traditional afternoon tea and a bottle of champagne -and it was beautiful! Great cakes, attentive service and a buzzy atmosphere – what a great little place to start our trip off!! We loved it and would definitely recommend a visit to the Fizzy Tarte!”
