Afternoon tea for 2

Option of adding glass of Prosecco

Hotel overlooking Edinburgh Castle

Available 7 days

Stylish gift idea

Picture the scene – you are sitting at a table covered with warm scones, lashings of fresh cream, sandwiches and, most importantly, cakes.

In your hand is a chilled glass of fizz and through the window you can see Edinburgh’s fairytale castle perched on its rock…

What’s not to love about this scene? And with this Big Deal, you can treat your favourite person to all of it.

Afternoon tea overlooking the castle

  • Mercure Edinburgh City is based in the heart of the capital near to Waverley station, the Scott Monument and the Playhouse Theatre.
  • Scott’s, the hotel’s Art Deco-style restaurant, offers spectacular panoramas of Edinburgh Castle and Princes Street Gardens. Where better to enjoy afternoon tea?

Sit back and relax

  • This Big Deal is for afternoon tea for two, with the option of adding on a foaming glass of Prosecco each (oh, go on).
  • You will be served freshly prepared finger sandwiches; scones with jam and fresh cream; a selection of cakes and your choice of speciality tea or freshly brewed coffee.
  • You can enjoy your afternoon tea seven days from noon to 5pm, all the way until May and then from October until December.

Surprise a special someone

  • Obviously, afternoon tea with an Edinburgh castle view would make a very ritzy birthday or anniversary gift.
  • Plus why not add extra sparkle to the experience by throwing in Prosecco as well?

Afternoon tea review on TripAdvisor

‘Ticked all the boxes. Stunning views towards the castle and Scott Monument. Loved the atmosphere, the decorations were really lovely – Burns, Mackintosh and all things Scottish. Staff friendly and efficient. Had a window table. The high tea was of good quality… all delicious, the scone was lovely…’ 4/5
