High Tea was originally created to formalize the afternoon repast when the evening meal was not served until 8 pm or later.  During the early 1900’s, the current form was established in the posh hotels of Europe.  The custom spread to the Americas and continues today in many locations worldwide.

High Tea at The Thornton Inn is a special scheduled event either in the Dining Room or in one of our outside venues.  The event includes three tiers of finger foods with a separate tea appropriate to each.  In the lower tier are the finger sandwiches; in the middle tier are scones and muffins; and the top tier has the sweet ending.  To complement each tier, we offer a separate tea brewed at your table in non-metallic strainers to eliminate leaching and preserve the unique flavor of each tea.

In recognition that not everyone has the same taste or budget, The Thornton Inn offers several standard High Tea packages or we can customize a package to your requirements.
