Afternoon Tea in Bristol
Which comes first, jam or cream? That’s always a big debate when it comes to traditional cream tea. And who can ever remember which one is the Devonshire way and which the Cornish?
Good thing that when indulging in an afternoon tea in Bristol you can always be sure of beautifully baked scones, a good dollop of jam and fresh clotted cream, neatly cut sandwiches and a selection of (almost) too-beautiful-to-eat cakes. Each hotel and café has its own twist on the afternoon tea, from the perfectly conventional to the wonderfully quirky.
There are all sorts of places to choose from, whether you fancy a modern city centre setting, such as The Bristol, the romance of a place like Hotel du Vin or a slice of history in the countryside at somewhere as magnificent as Thornbury Castle.
There’s nothing nicer than celebrating an occasion with an afternoon tea in Bristol, whether it’s for two people or 22. A surprise treat for Mother’s Day or a secret baby shower for your best friend. Luckily many venues here offer that extra something special to make sure whoever you’re splashing out on has the best time ever.
So all you need to do now is decide which teatime experience is for you…
Perhaps you’d like to enjoy a champagne high tea while sinking into the large sofas at the luxurious Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel? Or combine your afternoon tea with a trip to the spa at Mercure Bristol Grand, perfect for large groups and hen parties.
For vintage-style teas with a sprinkle of va va voom try either The Tea Birds on Park Street or Cox & Baloney Tea Room on Cheltenham Road. Meanwhile if you’re looking for something more casual, drop in to Pinkmans bakery for a strong coffee and sourdoughnut.
Be sure to check out the offers for the dates that you’re staying as you may be able to grab yourself a great deal on your afternoon tea in Bristol too!
