Happy guests

Peacock Alley has a very commendable combined rating of 4.4/5 on 5pm. This is what a recent guest had to say:

‘Birthday treat. We had a superb afternoon tea. Table in front of harpist but music and noise just a soft hum. Attentive waiters and waitresses, and huge selection of sandwiches, desserts and fancy cakes to choose from. We were able to take a couple of boxes home. Waiter service was excellent, polite and attentive but not obtrusive.’ Rating 4.8/5

The Caley is woven into the fabric of Edinburgh and today’s Big Deal with Peacock Alley is an excellent opportunity to sample its delights.

This offer would make a fantastic gift for friends or family or simply buy a couple and treat a gal pal to an elegant afternoon tea.
