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.

Didn't start well, when they did not have any record of our reservation despite me having the email confirmation. They fairly quickly found us a table which was good. The food was mediocre for the price. Three slivers of sandwiches and hard scones. Shame because the Brasserie setting is very nice

Nice however choice of sandwich filling leaves a bit to be desired also service not up to much had to wait too long for drinks and people allowed to stand by the bar where you are seated eating.

Afternoon tea was nice enough, dainty sandwiches and lovely strawberry cream. It was a bit quiet but that isn't the hotel's fault.

This is the second time I have had afternoon tea here, worried the first time was just a fluke..a lucky one! But no it really is the best I've had in Glasgow. Second time the service was a bit confused due to a big party going on but the staff are lovely and the food is really good and home made

Food is brilliant and so are the staff!

Had read about Cup online and decided to make a trip there whilst in Glasgow for the weekend. Found a deal on which gave me even more of an excuse to drag my boyfriend

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.
