Jazz-age splendour to celebrate Dad’s special day
Trading on the buzz created by the remake of the Great Gatsby, we have created the perfect tea brunch to honour Dad. Next Sunday, June 16, is Father’s Day, so today we depart from the Victorian era, and fast forward a few years to the Jazz Age to announce our Simply Splendid Afternoon Tea for Farther’s Day 2013.
F. Scott Fitzgerald penned this literary classic in 1925. There have been multiple remakes of the Great Gatsby movie. The first movie came out as a silent film in 1926. Then there were more versions to come out in 1949, 1974, 2000 and finally the newest movie in 2013. Every movie has put its own flair on the classic story while staying true to what Fitzgerald wrote.
We have created a special Bill of Fare for Sunday June 16:
