Afternoon Tea

Date With My Love

We were lucky enough to receive a gift voucher for afternoon tea at Marco Pierre White’s restaurant. It was a Christmas present from my father, I know what you’re thinking, why have we only just been when we got the gift back in December. Well I’ll tell you, this is one busy and booked up afternoon tea, we couldn’t get a date until mid June!

I had such a lovely afternoon spending quality time with Dave, sipping on bubbly and eating nice food. Thankfully they catered for my gluten free allergy, meaning I could eat away without having a care in the world. My favourite sandwich was the ham and cheese, now that’s a classic!

Afternoon Tea At The Waiting Room…

afternoon_tea_05afternoon_tea_07afternoon_tea_13Oh boy,  I do love a bit of afternoon tea and this was a good-en! As a little treat my sweet toothed friend Jermaine booked this afternoon tea for us. We’ve been to a number of different styled afternoon tea but this one was by far my favorite. It was so vintage and kitsch!

Then we tucked into our beautifully laid out cake stand starting with sandwiches of egg mayo and cranberry with cream cheese, I’m not usually an egg mayo or cream cheese kind of girl but these were very nice. We then went on to our favorites, the scones!  Not only were they super soft and fluffy but I loved the extra touch of using shot glasses for the clotted cream and jam. To finish off we had a brownie square each, I was far to full for the little meringue’s and they were coffee flavored which is my least favorite flavor! All in all it was a very fun afternoon and a very yummy one too!

With lots of the home decor item for sale, let me tell you it was very hard resisting not to buy anything! afternoon_tea_12afternoon_tea_15 afternoon_tea_16 afternoon_tea_17 afternoon_tea_18Follow me at Twitter and Facebook.
