Who doesn’t like tea & cake??

There are few things more British than a classic Afternoon Tea – Darby & Joan can provide the vintage china, the food, will dress your tables & can also provide waitresses so you can enjoy a fabulously indulgent party.

Our prices start from as little as £15.50 per guest which provides you with all the serving and eating china & cutlery as well as our Classic Afternoon Tea.

Our Classic Afternoon Tea is your choice of delicate sandwiches, made with salted butter & served with endless cups of tea, followed by sweet scones, thick cream & strawberry preserve.

We also include a layer cake per 12 guests for parties under 30 guests.


You can then add on whatever sweet or savoury delights you wish from our additional menu.

We ask for a minimum guest list of six…we are more than happy to work with you to adapt our menu so please ask.

We work in partnership with BlueBird Tea Company  who are Tea Mixologists.  They create their own unique blends of tea that are both unusual & interesting, but also affordable & tasty.  They make cool stuff like fruity iced teas, steaming tea lattes, healthy Smooches & incredible tea cocktails.  


Waitress Service & Hosting your Event…

The icing on the cake…we have waitresses & can host your event too.  Our girls are fabulously lovely, will serve at your event wearing tea dresses & a vintage apron.  We are very proud of our D&J girls & they really add the finishing touch to any party.  Please contact us for prices. 

You can then sit back & enjoy yourself knowing that everything is in good hands.
