Afternoon tea was once a fashionable pastime in Blackheath, from the start of the 20th century when the ladies from Blackheath’s smart set met for afternoon tea and to chat with friends.
After WWII, venues such as Jobbins, Aldertons & Christy’s served tea in the village, and there was also one very small tea room in Tranquil Passage which was notorious for the rudeness of its manageress. It got to the point where the customers complained if she was not rude to them.
These venues are long gone, but you can be sure of two things in the 21st century: The Clarendon has revived a very smart and pleasant Blackheath tradition and, none of its managers will ever be rude to our customers.
