Whilst in Scotland on my little Scottish Adventure I continued my afternoon tea adventures at the gorgeous Balmoral Hotel on Princes Steet. The tea was served in the Palm Court which is a truly stunning room with giant palm trees and beautifully painted walls. The furniture was all big comfy sofas and chairs in the centre and around the outside the room was decorated in a more traditional dining setting. Really was a beautifully classic setting for afternoon tea. Upon arrival I was settled at my table and asked what type of tea I would like. I asked for English Breakfast… View Post

I’ve just returned from a lovely last minute trip to Edinburgh. I’ve never been to Scotland before and although I am nowhere near feeling 100% I decided to just grab the bull by the horns as they say and jump right in. I’m in need of catching up on some afternoon teas in order to complete my afternoon tea challenge and decided I’d jump right in to the Edinburgh Afternoon Tea scene and partake in a few cullinery delights that Scotland has to offer. I was lucky enough to have 2 afternoon teas and 2 cream teas. I also sampled… View Post

March’s afternoon tea was taken at La Tour hotel in Birmingham.  The hotel is a modern beautifully decorated 4 star hotel in Birmingham City Centre.  I have been lucky enough to have had afternoon tea here before and loved it that much I decided to make a return visit.

I was served… View Post

Our table was laid out for us over looking a paved courtyard. I… View Post

Last week my dad took me out for Afternoon tea as a belated Christmas present.  I think its fair to say that I do like afternoon tea.  I have been luck to have been out for afternoon tea a number of times and every experience has been enjoyable but the top layer of treats have been varied and so delicious.  Its really hard to pick my favourite spread.  We had afternoon tea at Dunsley Hall hotel which is near Kinver in South Staffordshire. The old manor house which has been converted in to a hotel is stunning both inside and out… View Post
