On my birthday, way back in August, Mark took me to the Pump Rooms in Bath for a very swish Afternoon Tea. If you’ve never been to the Pump Rooms you really should. They are beautiful. It’s an amazing setting. TOP TIP – Definitely book! Luckily, Mark did and we were whizzed past the huge queue of people waiting to get in.
They had a trio of musicians accompanying and they were excellent. We had a pianist, a cellist and a violinist, who I watched with great envy! She made it look so effortless (and I know it isn’t!)
Anyway, on to the food….
Firstly we had a selection of finger sandwiches. We had cream cheese & spring onion, ham & cucumber and Mark had egg for his third and I had houmous with cucumber. After that we had one fruit and one plain scone each with plenty of cream & jam. The scones were enormous and by the time we’d finished those we were pretty full up! However, we had to try the little fancy cakes too….
We had one mango & coconut thing which Mark had. Then there was a chocolate mousse thing that I ate (gorgeous). Mark had the coffee macaron (not keen). Then I had the caramel profiterole (well it was *my* birthday!)
We rolled out of there full to bursting point and very happy. It’s not the cheapest afternoon tea in the world (no surprise there) but it was well worth the £24 I thought.
Would definitely recommend it for a special occasion 🙂
