Afternoon tea, properly polished shoes and a stout refusal to wear flip flops in town are all marks of a civilised society.
Serve yourself a slice of sophistication with today’s Big Deal on a Prosecco afternoon tea for two in the Samovar Lounge, part of the Crowne Plaza Roxburghe.
Leafy Charlotte Square
Overlooking leafy Charlotte Square in the heart of Edinburgh, the Samovar Lounge is an elegant spot for afternoon tea, a glass of Prosecco and a good chat.
We can supply the afternoon tea and the fizz. We’ll leave the gossip up to you.
Available noon-5pm, Monday to Friday, option one is for two people to have afternoon tea and a glass of Prosecco in the Samovar Lounge.
Option two, available noon-5pm on Saturdays and Sundays, is also for two people to have afternoon tea and a glass of Prosecco each.
Afternoon tea in the Samovar Lounge is a splendid affair which demonstrates the skills of the bakers and patisserie chefs in the hotel’s kitchens.
Guests can look forward to sandwiches such as cucumber, hot smoked salmon with dill crème fraiche and roast beef pepped up with grain mustard.
The scones, both fruit and plain, are served warm with clotted cream and preserves while the cakes and tarts might include such delights as milk and white chocolate profiteroles and lemon drizzle cake.
The Samovar Lounge has a wide range of speciality, loose-leaf teas. So whether your tastes run to Earl Grey, China White or the finest Assam second flush, the charming staff at the Samovar Lounge can oblige.
Afternoon tea enthusiasts have not been slow to review the Samovar Lounge on TripAdvisor:
‘Greatly relaxing afternoon tea. Just came home after an afternoon tea. So relaxing, calm and very well looked after. Really good selection (and quality) of sweet and savoury food served along with the tea. Attentive waiter and manager well presented, helpful and looked after us and other people.’
This Big Deal with the Samovar Lounge in the Crowne Plaza Roxburghe would be a wonderful way to while away an afternoon with a friend or family member.
It would also make a splendid gift. Who could possibly say no to Prosecco, dainty sandwiches and warm scones with clotted cream?
