Shanghai-ing sailors and sending small children up chimneys are rightly frowned upon these days but some old traditions are worth preserving.
Take up today’s Big Deal with the 4* Grange Manor in Glensburgh and help preserve the very honourable tradition of afternoon tea.
A great way to spoil a family member; a special day out or simply a good excuse for a catch-up with a friend, this offer is the perfect summer time treat.
Set in landscaped gardens (ideal for an appetite-building stroll), Grange Manor is a short drive from Edinburgh or Glasgow and just
minutes from Falkirk, Stirling and West Lothian.
Originally the factor’s house for the Earl of Zetland’s estates, Grange Manor was built in the late 19th century and its elaborate cornicing and exquisite wooden staircases speak of more lavish times.
While it was built more than 200 years ago, Grange Manor has plenty of modern comforts and style – it was given a thorough and sympathetic refurbishment last year.
Traditional afternoon tea
The hotel is the ideal setting in which to treat yourself or friends to a traditional afternoon cream tea.
The kitchen brigade are a talented crew who have put many hours into configuring the perfect scone mix; ideal whipped cream consistency and the most dainty angle at which to slice the sandwiches.
Their quest for perfection comes together in today’s Big Deal which comprises a selection of sandwiches, scones, jams and preserves; cream cakes, fruit cakes and freshly brewed tea and coffee.
Available from 1pm to 4pm daily, Grange Manor offers gorgeous surrounds in which to enjoy this most traditional of afternoon pleasures.
Lots of customers have already taken tea at Grange Manor and written about how much they enjoyed the experience on TripAdvisor. This recent visitor was delighted:
‘The afternoon tea was absolutely lovely! Lots of sandwiches and a nice selection of cakes. Our waiter was great, we felt really looked after but were also given time to relax and enjoy ourselves without feeling like we needed to finish up in any hurry… The dining room they use for the afternoon tea and breakfast is very nice, comfortable and spacious and the décor is gorgeous.’
