It is in the early 1840's that Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, is first credited with creating the concept of Afternoon Tea. She would request a small meal of treats, including cakes, tarts, and sweets to be taken secretly to her to curb her hunger prior to the traditional dinner time in the evening. When her snacking was uncovered she was not mocked as she had feared, but her habit caught on and the idea of a small meal of treats and tea became the height of fashion. Since then Afternoon Tea has evolved over time and today it is more popular than ever.
Tiny Tim’s Celebration Tea for Two A bottle of our finest English sparkling wine. A selection of finger sandwiches made to order; cucumber, smoked salmon & cream cheese, ham, and egg & cress. A scone each served with jam and clotted cream. A slice of cake per person from our Cake Cupboard. A full choice from our extensive list of our speciality teas or coffees. *
A treat championed by the great London hotels such as The Ritz and Claridges, a Champange Tea is the ultimate in luxury. Tiny Tim’s has selected to use superb English wines in our menu, showcasing our commitment to local produce. English wines have evolved over the past decade and we believe our choice for our Celebration Tea is one of the finest sparkling wines we have ever tasted.
£62.00 for two persons

Cream Teas and High Teas Kentish Cream Tea Two freshly baked scones served with butter, jam and clotted cream. A choice from our extensive list of our speciality teas or coffees.*
There are regional variations within England as to how a cream tea should preferably be eaten. The Tiny Tim’s method is to split the scone in two, cover each half with jam, and then dollop the clotted cream on top!

Tiny Tim’s High Tea A freshly poached egg served on two toasted crumpets. A freshly baked scone served with jam and clotted cream. A selection of mini pastries and cakes baked at Tiny Tim’s. A choice from our extensive list of our speciality teas or coffees.*
For the working and farming communities, Afternoon Tea became High Tea. As the main meal of the day, High Tea was a cross between the delicate afternoon meal enjoyed in the ladies' drawing rooms and the dinner enjoyed in houses of the gentry at seven or eight in the evening

Legends of the Ghosts In the 1980's a devastating fire destroyed most of this building uncovering many of the original features that were previously hidden. These discoveries persuaded the council to reinstate the property to its original glory with a full restoration project. However, during the work some macabre discoveries were made in the room on the second floor. Behind the original wood panels they found inscriptions for the children that had lived and died here for many generations, along with a child’s tooth, a ringlet of hair, and the name, date of birth and death for each. On removal of these items the building was said to take on a different feel. Workmen who were here late reported that the temperature of the building cooled, and that they heard the sounds of children playing on the stairs. Strangest of all was the sound of children whispering and singing in the panelled room. The children's spirits are believed to still roam the building today. The ghost room is open to the public where we have a small display detailing the history of the building and its ghostly legends. Please feel free to visit during your stay.
