Afternoon Tea Adventures; Park Regis Hotel, Birmingham

Blog post

Last month as part of Afternoon Tea week I went to the Park Regis hotel at Five Ways, Birmingham to have afternoon tea. Food is served in their restaurant which has a modern classic look with views over the city.

 Tea was English breakfast with as many refills as we wanted.  Firstly we were served an amuse Boucher; a salmon mousse served in a pastry scone.

Sandwiches were:

  • Cucumber and mint and Cream cheese
  • Honey roast gammon ham with Dijon mustard
  • Rare roast beef with Horseradish and tomato, brioche bun
  • Smoked salmon and chive creme fraîche wrap

Next were the scones and the homemade fruit scone with clotted cream and conserve was delicious.

Concerning the other scone I was glad I was paying attention before I layered jam and cream on it. There were great bits in the scone. It turns out it was a savoury Cheddar cheese and chive scone. Oh how strange that would have tasted with cream and jam. It was delicious but we weren’t told it was a savoury scone and was served alongside the jam and cream.

The cakes and sweets were:

  • Blackberry passion fruit lollipop
  • Mango, sour cherry granules
  • Jasmine green tea macaroon
  • Salted caramel and chocolate mousse
  • Jivara sponge, Cherry chiboust, orange sablé breton
  • Raspberry and pistachio opera cake.

All totally delicious. Apart from the shock of nearly putting cream and jam on a savoury scone, everything was delicious.  The afternoon tea at The Park Regis Hotel is priced at £24.  They also serve a gentlman’s and a Hendricks gin afternoon tea which are both priced at £29.  Booking is required.

    I love a good afternoon tea and this looks like a great one! That amuse bouche is very unusual and the whole spread is a little bit different to traditional – but looks delicious.
