"The term ‘Tiffin,’ is of Anglo Indian and Hindustani origin used mainly in English households for luncheon."

Back in 1988 I did a lecture tour in Hong Kong and on one occasion was taken for tiffin at the Peninsular. What an experience that was - the last gasp of colonialism. I believe you can still take tiffin there but is not quite the same atmosphere as was.

You've never ever ever had a high tea until you've tried the Mount Nelson in Cape Town. My kids where brought up to worship the place. Even now when I go to the archives I pop in for 'Tea'.

90th, you lucky so and so, but don't get too grogged up on the cheap ale mate, you might end up down a donga  Shocked 

Some years ago Fry's made a chocolate biscuit bar called Tiffin, I think that Cadbury's make one these days.

When are you coming over to Blighty mate? Let me know so that I can take you to our local watering hole for some 'light refreshments', with maybe a drop or two of the old 'tincture'.  agree 

You have a great time old chap.

 Salute

Hi Martin
 Very Happy  , do it ok , will have more drink once the tour starts I'd imagine , quaffing a few as the sun sets over Isandlwana I'd think .
To be honest I hadnt heard of Tiffin before , I dont think Cadbury make it as I'm sure I'd know of it ? . I'm partial to their products , like most of Australia as it has a huge factory in Hobart Tasmania , been there twice , cheap chocolate , nearly as good as cheap beer ! . Anyway got to go , the breakfast buffet is calling ! , got 3 and half hrs before meeting up with Ian Knight and the tour at the airport , after b'fast I'll have an hour !!! LOL. No plans to get to the UK , finance's depleted ! , it's cheap here , but the next trip with the Missus will be a killer ! LOL.
