Summer is here, but it’s never guaranteed that we can sit in a beer garden or lap up the sun down the west coast.
What we can guarantee is that you can put the world to rights over a mighty fine afternoon tea, so get thinking about the last few months’ gossip.
Today’s Big Deal on an afternoon tea for two at Cranachan is just the excuse for a natter.
Dainty sandwiches and cream scones will put a little spring in your step, and that glass of Prosecco just tops it all off.
Situated on the second floor of Princes Square, Cranachan is an inviting mix of modern design and locally-produced food.
And, with spacious, airy atrium seating, it is great for people-watching.
Inside Cranachan, antler chandeliers and walls decorated by Glasgow’s famous Timorous Beasties confidently set the stage for the contemporary Scottish cuisine served in Cranachan.
Available in the afternoon, Sunday to Friday, the offer is for two people to enjoy afternoon tea at Cranachan, with choice of various loose leaf Suki teas and Miko coffee.
Your sandwich selection includes Mull of Kintyre cheddar and seasonal chutney (v); egg mayonnaise and mustard cress (v) and roast breast of chicken roasted peppers, rocket and tarragon mayonnaise.
After that, it’s onwards and upwards to the cream scones, miniature cakes and, finally, the individual desserts.
A glass of Prosecco each makes the afternoon a wee bit fancier.
Cranachan scores a very solid 4.2/5 from more than 500 5pm reviews. Good service, delicious food and the laidback atmos are recurring themes:
‘Fantastic afternoon tea. Everything was excellent. I would thoroughly recommend afternoon tea at Cranachan it was delicious…’ Rating 5/5
‘Fabulous afternoon tea. I have waited for a long time to have afternoon tea at Cranachan, and it was well worth the wait. Sometimes you can get too many cakes and not enough savouries with some afternoon teas. Cranachan’s offering was just the right amount of sweet and savouries and the sandwiches were delicious. Beautiful scone and cream too.’ Rating 4.5/5
Tea for two
This Big Deal from Cranachan would be perfect for a shopping trip break; an afternoon catch-up with a friend or even a late lunch.
Add in a glass of Prosecco and make it a celebration perhaps.
