Pssst, can you keep a secret?

Yes? Good, then you’d make the ideal afternoon tea companion. Because ‘What happens around the teapot stays around the teapot’, or so the saying goes.

Meaning no matter what scandals are whispered over the sugar cubes, you can never, ever share them with anyone else.

So get ready to spill a bit of hot gossip (but hopefully, not any hot drinks), with today’s Big Deal on either afternoon tea or high tea in a delightful Scottish Borders setting.

Jaunt to the Borders

This treat for two will be served at Philipburn House Hotel near Selkirk, around an hour from Edinburgh.

Set in in four acres of beautiful woodlands and gardens, the hotel has excellent guest reviews. The property dates back to the 18th century and still has plenty of period charms.

As this Big Deal is available all the way until November 2020, you could enjoy it in any season.

Afternoon tea for two

Option one of this Big Deal is for classic afternoon tea for two, with a choice of freshly ground coffee or tea. Here’s what you can expect:

Selection of sandwiches
Freshly made scones with jam and whipped cream
Tray bake
Mini dessert

You can also add on a glass of fizz each with option two. Both afternoon tea options are available seven days a week.

High tea for two

Option three is for a high tea for two, available Friday to Sunday. It will include the following, with a choice of tea or freshly ground coffee:

Chicken or quorn green Thai curry with basmati rice
Battered chicken goujons with chipped potatoes and citrus mayonnaise
Hand-cut gammon steak with chipped potatoes and fried egg
Roast ham or cheese salad with crusty bread
Breaded scampi with tartare sauce, chipped potatoes and peas
Slice of chef’s homemade loaf cake of the day

All options can be booked for up to six people, making it fantastic for a family or friends catch-up.

Fantastic reviews

Here’s a snippet of the kind of review that has earned Philipburn House a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence:

‘Exceptional quality of amenities and location. Very high standards of decor and cleanliness. Very helpful and friendly staff. High quality food for breakfast and dinner. Surrounding gardens are exceptional. Would highly recommend Philipburn Hotel…’

Give the gift of a day out

This Big Deal from Philipburn House is more than just an afternoon treat – it’s also a chance to explore our beautiful Borders with a loved one or the whole family.

Traquair House and Jedburgh Abbey are both nearby, so you could make a proper day out of it. Plus as it’s available until November, you could even wait for the better weather.
