If you are still buying Christmas presents at this stage in the game then we salute your steely nerves.
Although we are slightly concerned for your state of mind.
We are here to help.
If you know someone who would swoon at the thought of being taken for a swish afternoon tea then you can tick them off your still-to-buy-for list.
Today’s Big Deal is with La Bonne Auberge on West Nile Street and it is for a rather special afternoon tea with a glass of bubbly.
La Bonne Auberge opened back in 1975. Almost 40 years later, it is still going strong and, after a six figure facelift last year, it looks as elegant as ever.
Available seven days a week from noon to 4pm, this deal is for a sumptuous afternoon tea for one person at La Bonne Auberge.
The mouth-watering afternoon tea consists of an assortment of freshly prepared finger sandwiches, a fruit scone with clotted cream and strawberry jam, plus a selection of gourmet petit pastries.
A glass of fizz is included in the deal. Tea is pretty much a miracle drink but add a glass of bubbles into the occasion and the party steps up to a whole new level.
Fittingly for a venue with an AA rosette, La Bonne Auberge offers a wide variety of top quality Suki teas.
From bright, light and crisp breakfast tea to refreshing roiboos and exotic green tea via fragrant chamomile and tingly whole peppermint, there is a whole world of flavours in every pot at La Bonne Auberge.
This offer would be brilliant as a gift for a family friend or relative who would appreciate an outing. It would also be ideal for a catch-up with a friend or it might come in handy as a little pick-me-up during a marathon shopping expedition at the sales.
La Bonne Auberge has collected lots of happy reviews over the years. On 5pm Dining, it is rated 4/5 by customers. Short and sweet, this is what a couple of recent guests had to say:
‘Delicious meal in lovely surroundings.’ Rating 4.6/5
‘Lovely meal as usual,’ Rating 4/5
