Afternoon tea makes a tremendous treat.
It provides the chance to let off steam after spending too long with your nearest and dearest.
Think of it as a stress relief treatment that features tea and scones rather than a massage.
Today’s Big Deal on afternoon tea for two or four comes from Metropolitan Cocktail Bar and Restaurant.
Located in Merchant Square, Metropolitan has long been a sophisticated spot for a candlelit meal; a well made cocktail or a soothing chocolate brownie and lovely cup of tea.
On some days, afternoon tea at Metropolitan is served in the balcony restaurant overlooking Merchant Square – a great location for people watching.
Option of Prosecco
Available from Wednesday to Friday and Sunday with sittings at 12.30pm and 2.30pm, and Saturday with a sitting at 12.30pm, this offer is for two or four people to have afternoon tea at Metropolitan Cocktail Bar and Restaurant.
Option one is for the afternoon tea for two. Option two adds a glass of Prosecco for each guest.
Feel like a wee group catch up? Option three is for four people to have the afternoon tea with a glass of Prosecco each.
Afternoon tea at Metropolitan includes a delicious selection of sandwiches – roast beef and horseradish; tuna and cucumber; ham and mustard as well as egg mayonnaise and cress.
Naturally, there is a selection of sweet treats, think along the lines of chocolate brownies, strawberry tarts and chocolate cups.
Tea and coffee is included in both options.
For Wednesday and Thursday bookings, the afternoon tea is served in the courtyard and Friday to Sunday it is served on the balcony restaurant overlooking Merchant Square.
For £5, customers can upgrade from Prosecco to a cocktail, choosing from the following: Bloody Mary, Met Cosmo, Bellini, Breakfast Martini, Daiquiri and French Martini. Supplements are payable direct to the restaurant.
Metropolitan Cocktail Bar and Restaurant has a loyal fan base among 5pm customers. At the time of writing, just over 1100 diners have given Metropolitan a very strong combined rating of 4.1/5.
This is what recent customers had to say:
‘Booked late, Friday straight from work and forgot how good this place is. 10 out of 10 for food, 10 out of 10 for atmosphere…’
‘The food and service were excellent, had the pre-theatre meal which was great value for money. Will definitely go back.’
This Big Deal from Metropolitan Cocktail Bar and Restaurant would be ideal as a present.
Buy a few, give one as a gift and keep the other for a sanity-saving catch-up with a friend. Go with option three and get a group of you together for the start of a fun day out.
We would be tempted to bunk off Friday afternoon and make a day of it – Metropolitan’s excellent range of £5 cocktails are very tempting.
