Granny Mouse Country House & Spa, who are always on trend, have launched
many new and exciting menus, which now include a High Tea Menu to its

General Manager, Sean Granger, and his team of culinary artists thought it
fitting to create some lighter, yet well-loved, meals as we know you are
always a little peckish in the clean country air of the Midlands.

Have you ever wondered where high tea originated? Well believe it or not, it
began over 150 years ago in England. They termed it afternoon tea, where a
light meal would be served in the late afternoon and was enjoyed by the
wealthy classes in 1840 and thereabout. In the 19th century, the middle
classes soon took up the tradition, followed by the lower end classes.

For the poorer folk, the afternoon tea included tea, with blocks of sugar
and milk, providing a bit of a sugar rush for those who had worked some
physical work. The labourers who had their afternoon tea were more about a
baked snack and a sandwich, which was packed in the mornings. For those who
were far wealthier, it was quite a display of sandwiches featuring cucumber,
egg, fish paste, ham, smoked salmon and the likes. The sweets were often
scones with whipped cream and jam. Of course, there were also cakes like
fruit cake etc.

While cakes are still served, High Teas are way more modern now with mini
milk tarts, crème caramels, long doughnuts, crepes, etc. served on tiered
stands and served in five star hotels.

So make sure you get to Granny Mouse and take advantage of their High Tea,
served from 10:30am to 6pm, their offering features plain sweet scones with
cream and jam, cake of the day and then there is the Snack Menu which is
served up from 3pm – 6pm.

All toasted sandwiches are served on brown, white or whole wheat bread and
served with a choice of chips or salad. Options include homemade chicken and
mayonnaise; ham & cheese or cheese and tomato.

If it’s a milkshake you’re after, Granny Mouse has some truly artisan
options: peanut butter; chocolate and banana; strawberry, cherry and
marshmallow or coffee and Oreo. However, if this is too decadent for you,
the firm favourites are also on offer from strawberry; chocolate; vanilla;
coffee or milo flavoured. (Please note menu items may contain traces of
