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.

A lovely experience. Very nice ambience with guitar solo in background, very relaxed with definitely no hussle & bussle. Staff were very attentive and afternoon tea as you would expect.

I took my sister to Mar Hall this week for afternoon tea to celebrate her birthday. The staff were very nice, good service and lots of refillable tea and coffee. The only thing I would say is I would have preferred a couple more sandwiches and a bit less cakes - although they were delicious we...

Afternoon Tea at One Square comes into Bloom

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.

We spent the morning filming Bar Manager Hugh Gibb as he talked us through One Square's splendid collection of over 50 gins. He filled us in on gin's chequered history from its Dutch origins to its current incarnation as the spirit of choice for the discerning cocktail maker.
