Classic Lodges, the independent hotel group, has launched its new Autumn afternoon tea menu offering a modern twist on classic sandwich fillings, cakes and treats, alongside traditional teas and homemade scones.
Such was the popularity of the seasonal afternoon tea offering last year, the hotel group has decided to continue it. Chefs from all 10 owned hotels meet three times a year to discuss and decide each seasonal menu.
The Autumn menu comprises a selection of freshly made to order finger sandwiches. Guests can choose from smoked ham and wholegrain mustard, mature cheddar with plum and apple chutney, roast beef with creamed horseradish and rocket, hummus and roasted red pepper and lemon pepper chicken with garlic mayonnaise.
Alongside these, guests can enjoy a selection of delicious autumnal treats including carrot cake, treacle tart, banoffee fool and white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake. Also, as a new addition to the seasonal menus, the Autumn launch will see a new savoury option added – a homemade scotch egg.
All of Classic Lodges afternoon tea menu options can be enjoyed with traditional teas and homemade scones with clotted cream and jam. And for those looking to add a bit of extra fizz and sparkle to the experience, alcoholic drink options are available including Lansons Champagne, prosecco and a selection of classic cocktails.
Richard Smith, Director of Marketing and Partnerships, says we believe in the great tradition of afternoon tea and believe it is made to be shared: “Our seasonal afternoon tea menus have been extremely popular since we introduced them last year. Everyone loves afternoon tea – so we decided to add a slightly different twist and reimagine a classic English afternoon treat.”
The Autumn afternoon tea menu is available now at all 10 owned Classic Lodges hotels until 30 November, vouchers can be booked directly through Classic Lodges new e-commerce site – classiclodges.co.uk/book/.
