The 1940s themed Tea at The Shed on Sproughton High Street started offering the treat this week, with hundreds of excited diners commenting on their Facebook post as it was announced.
Lesley Austin, who owns The Shed with her partner Ken Dunn, said they'd had "quite a lot of bookings" already.
The afternoon tea costs £16.95, which includes the school meal favourites, as well as a selection of sandwiches, a fruit scone with clotted cream and strawberry jam and a pot of loose leaf tea or a cafetiere of coffee.
The special tea will remain on the menu while it proves popular. "We would like to keep it going as long as there's demand for it," Lesley added.
