Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea has swung right back into fashion over the last few years with everyone from the grandest hotels to the coolest bars reviving the afternoon tea tradition. You can use 5pm Dining to find, browse and book venues that offer afternoon tea in your area.

In Glasgow, traditional tea rooms like Cup, Cranachan and The Tearooms at The Butterfly and the Pig serve up delectable cup cakes and scones, while trendy bars like Lucky 7 on Glasgow's Bath Street and Wild Cabaret are putting a funky new spin on afternoon tea and cocktails or fizz. In Edinburgh, hotels such as the Waldorf Astoria and One Square in the Sheraton ensure that the custom of taking afternoon tea is in no danger of dying out in the capital.

Service fell short of standard expected at a Waldorf Astoria Hotel. We were left for quite a while before being attended to. We had to ask for more tea and coffee rather than being asked as would be expected at an hotel of that level. They also did not seem to have our booking. Would not rush back

There was nothing to indicate that this had anything to do with mothers day! If I had walked in off the street I would have been served the same disappointing food. Sandwich choice was poor! No thought had been put into the fact it was mothers day. Would not eat there again!

The Bloom Gin Afternoon Tea at One Square: summer is here.

The 5pm Dining blog had a fine time last week at One Square in Edinburgh.
