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.

Had a lovely experience at No11 for afternoon tea, the restaurant was busy with lots of other people also having afternoon tea however this did not compromise the service or quality of food - both which were excellent. Great value for money would definitely go back.

The food was lovely, different to other afternoon teas I have had, the egg mayo was delicious. Was good value for money and the performers were really good. It was a bit difficult to order and have the waiting staff hear you though when in the middle of a show. Maybe more breaks in performances?

Afternoon Tea at One Square comes into Bloom

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