We’re so excited about this Big Deal that we are going to spare you the usual duff jokes, poor puns and frankly silly factoids which usually preface the offers.
Instead, we’ll just say that we are very happy to present today’s Big Deal on the speciality afternoon tea at Edinburgh’s gorgeous Peacock Alley.
Peacock Alley is part of the five star Caledonian, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel, which re-launched in Edinburgh last year after a £24 million refurbishment.
Affectionately known as The Caley to generations of Edinburgh residents, this landmark hotel, a former railway hotel, looks better than ever and today’s Big Deal is a fantastic way to see the new improvements.
New York style
Formerly the station concourse, Peacock Alley is the historic heart of the Caley and reflects the timeless sophistication of this much loved hotel.
Modelled on the Waldorf Astoria New York but also recalling the old Caley, Peacock Alley is a chic spot for a memorable afternoon tea.
Seasonal speciality afternoon tea
Along with a chilled glass of Pommery Royal Brut Champagne, today’s stylish offer is for one person to enjoy one of Peacock Alley’s speciality afternoon teas. These change with the seasons and feature exclusive cake creations created by the hotel’s highly skilled pastry chef.
As well as beautiful finger sandwiches and freshly baked plain and fruit scones served with fresh cream and strawberry jam, your treat will include a fantastic selection of inventive cakes and pastries.
The exact line-up will change regularly but think along the lines of lemon meringue pies, salted caramel éclairs, chocolate mousse with orange marmalade or the wild strawberry and white chocolate opera.
Teas from around the world
Naturally, a perfect pot of tea is included in the offer and Peacock Alley has a wonderful selection of teas and infusions from around the globe.
From the house Caledonian Royal Scottish blend to light Ceylon via the classic smoky flavour of Lapsang Souchong, your waiter will be happy to help you select your favourite tea.
The Caley is woven into the fabric of Edinburgh and today’s Big Deal with Peacock Alley is a brilliant way 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.
