Esplanade Hotel Fremantle by Rydges
High Tea in the Harbour Master Saturday and Sunday.
The British tradition of High Tea began in the mid-1700s as an afternoon meal usually served between 3 and 4 o’clock.
For the ‘leisure classes’, High Tea served a practical purpose, allowing ladies and gentlemen the opportunity of substantial sustenance before attending the theatre or playing cards. It was around that time that one John Montagu, the Fourth Earl of Sandwich, had the idea of placing meat and other fillings between two slices of bread. Thus, the High Tea sandwich was created.
Building on this wonderful tradition we offer High Tea in the Harbour Master Restaurant overlooking the Esplanade Park each Saturday and Sunday from 2pm -4pm. Be delighted with a glass of icy cold champagne, wonderful sweet and savoury treats and of course a bottomless cup of tea from our Dilmah gourmet tea range.
Bookings are essential.
