Looking for a Christmas gift with a certain élan?
Something sophisticated with a very definite sense of style?
Cast an eye over this Big Deal on afternoon tea for two in The Salon at Blythswood Square Hotel.
If you saunter up the grand staircase at the five star Blythswood Square, you will find the Salon, an elegant lounge bar.
It is a very chic space. 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, Ionic columns and large windows looking out over Blythswood Square itself, it is a cosmopolitan spot for enjoying afternoon tea – surely the dining occasion with the most finesse?
Glass of Champagne?
Available noon to 5pm, Sunday to Friday, the offer is for two people to have a luxurious afternoon tea.
Option two adds a glass of chilled Champagne for each diner.
The chefs are always tweaking and developing the menu so it does change. However, your afternoon tea will look very similar to this:
Egg mayonnaise sandwich on wholemeal bread
Coronation chicken sandwich on white bread
Ayrshire honey roast ham & Arran mustard mini roll
Scottish smoked salmon & dill mayonnaise mini brioche
Applewood smoked cheddar & tomato tartlet
Traditional and fruit scone with clotted cream and strawberry preserve
Lightly toasted coconut meringue cone
Classic vanilla and strawberry Victoria sponge
Apple crumble tartlet
Madagascan Madirofolo chocolate mousse choux bun
Enjoy it all a selection of unlimited hot beverages. The Salon serves a wide range of loose leaf teas and speciality coffees.
