Who in your life is the straw to your berries?
The cream to your scones?
The sugar to your tea?
Whoever that special person is, why not show them how much you care by whisking them out for a gorgeous strawberry cream tea for two in The Salon?
Based in the Blythswood Square Hotel, The Salon was actually voted one of the best bars in the world.
In other words, it’s an extra decadent space for an afternoon treat.
If you toddle up the grand staircase at the 5-star Blythswood Square Hotel, you will find the Salon, an elegant lounge bar.
As far as afternoon tea spots go, this one is extra special. In fact, the drinks bible, Class magazine, rated it as one of ‘the best bars in the world’.
Decked out with chandeliers, Harris Tweed chairs, ornate columns and large windows looking out over Blythswood Square itself, it is a sophisticated spot that’s perfect for enjoying this delicious Big Deal.
Strawberry cream tea
Available noon to 5pm, Sunday to Friday, the offer is for two people to have a luxurious strawberry cream tea.
Start looking forward to strawberry macarons; a bowl of fresh strawberries plus plain and fruit scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam.
Enjoy it all a selection of unlimited hot beverages. The Salon serves a wide range of loose leaf teas and speciality coffees.
Of course, there is always the option to add on a little something cold and with a kick. If you want to order up a glass of Champagne or a Strawberry Mojito (not included), the staff will happily oblige.
The Salon attracts lots of happy reviews on TripAdvisor. As these excerpts from longer reviews demonstrate:

Go on, spoil someone

Some say that life is just a bowl of cherries. But with this Big Deal, it’s a bowl of strawberries with lashings of cream on the side.
