 The Smoking-Cap Ceremony 

Immediately before the end of Luncheon, the Clerk will present the traditional Smoking Cap to the Master, who will don it and bow to the assembled Company.
This ceremony, which formerly signified that smoking was permitted, is carried out in silence. At its conclusion, the Livery and guests are invited to join the Master on the Quarter Deck for the partaking of cigars, coffee and other refreshments.
