Would afternoon tea everyday be too indulgent?
It's no secret by now that I adore taking afternoon tea. Spending a few hours, with my female family and friends, enjoying lady like bites and champagne in a relaxed atmosphere, really is a wonderful way to while away the afternoon. So when I got invited* to sample afternoon tea at Hotel La Tour in Birmingham, I was happy to indulge. I invited my mum to come with me as she has a celebration this week and has been with me on my last few afternoon tea indulges, so very well positioned to help me review this new venue.
maître d' and were given a choice of where we wanted to sit. We chose one of the sofas, which gave us a good view of the bar, so that we could people watch. I really love the Alice n Wonderland red chairs which are placed right at the tip of the room.
The service throughout was impeccable, you certainly weren't rushed but checked on just the right amount of times. The surroundings are very relaxing, being both chic and opulent. Afternoon tea at Hotel La Tour costs £15.95 which we think is exceptional value. At the moment it is served Friday to Sunday between 2pm and 5pm. Mum and I both think that this just pips the Hyatt in Birmingham due to the imaginative selections and certainly rivals the big London hotels. We wouldn't hesitate recommending this afternoon tea, whether for a celebration or just because you fancy it.
An afternoon tea fit for a Queen....it gets my seal of approval!
