Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea

March 11, 2012

On Friday, my Mum and I both had the afternoon off, so went for an early Mother’s Day treat of Afternoon Tea for 2 at the stunning Parkside Hotel in Milton Keynes.

Afternoon tea is civilised, charmingly British and a great opportunity to spend quality time together. Having indulged in 2 exceptional afternoon teas together previously, we went in with fairly high expectations and neither of us were disappointed, the surroundings, decor, staff and food were all truly outstanding.

With a selection of yummy crustless finger sized sandwiches, scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream, pretty macaroons and several incredibly scrumptious cakes we over-indulged to the max. This was all enjoyed from the comfort of the beautiful location of Parkside Hotel (sitting in the window we also had a view of the gorgeous countryside of Woughton-on-the-Green too) we both had a great time and would highly recommend as a wonderful Mother’s Day present.

With over 50 locations across the UK AND with a bonus 15% discount at the moment at Red Letter Days, this is the perfect, affordable treat for 2 (currently only £29 for 2 – click here to see further info). My only advice would be to try and book it in around lunchtime as we went at 3pm which messed up the meal routine as didn’t want lunch before and then was completely stuffed afterwards, but it was well worth the stomach expansion, which brings me on to the only other piece of advice… an elasticated waistband is a must for all those scrummy irresistible cakes!!
