It was my sisters birthday at the weekend , which made Sunday the perfect day to go out for Afternoon Tea. Our mutual friend Becky booked us a table at Mitton Hall , a beautiful 15th century country house hotel near Whalley in Lancashire. We are so lucky to have such lovely places right on our doorstep. 🙂
Our table was reserved in the restaurant area and as Spring had decided to take a holiday for the day, we were happy to be seated near to a roaring fire and the Birthday girl and Becky sank into a cozy sofa.
The Afternoon Tea at Mitton Hall comes served on a grey slate three tiered cake stand, laden with goodies. There were a variety of assorted finger sandwiches, four types of cake and cherry scones served with a delicious cherry preserve and clotted cream. We chose to drink tea and of course you are allowed to ask for refills. Don’t be shy.
We couldn’t really find fault with our food, except the Lancashire cheese and pickle sandwich filling was more pickle than cheese. Overall though it was very tasty and great value for money at £15.50 per person. You can also order Champagne Afternoon tea which is £21 per person. However we decided to indulge in refreshing mocktails for a change. Becky enjoyed her ‘elderflower mojito’ and Yvonne and I chose to drink ‘pussyfoots’ made from pineapple,citrus and grenadine.
Mitton Hall provided an elegant and relaxed setting and friendly unobtrusive service. We found it to be the perfect place for a birthday celebration. 🙂
