Legend has it that the tradition of high tea began in England in the late 1800s. At that time dinner was eaten late in the evening around 9pm, often leaving people hungry in the afternoon.

The Duchess of Bedford complained of a “sinking feeling” in her stomach during the day, and began taking tea and light snacks in the afternoon. She invited her friends to join her tea breaks, and the idea spread like wildfire through their social circles. High tea was the perfect way to enjoy a light meal and socialize with friends.

​Keeping with the tradition of enjoying a light meal and socializing with friends, we invite you to spend a springtime afternoon with us at Ross Creek. Serving high tea Ross Creek style, our chef uses locally sourced ingredients to offer you a delicious twist on the traditional finger foods and pastries that the Duchess of Bedford would have enjoyed with friends.
