Afternoon Tea At Leasowe Castle

I never used to get when people went out for afternoon tea, I know it's weird but I always thought why are people going out for tea, sandwiches and cake when they can do it at home. Thankfully 2018 has completely changed my mind and I've actually come to love going out for afternoon tea with my mum as it's a lovely way for us to spend the afternoon together. Back in November I got to go to a delicious menu tasting at the beautiful Leasowe Castle and luckily I was back there again before the New Year for their afternoon tea with my mother.

I know we are well past the festive period but just before the New Years ended I got the chance to visit the beautiful Leasowe Castle again for their festive afternoon tea. I am so lucky to have the stunning Leasowe Castle so close to home, it is a beautiful place to dine, stay or even have a wedding at. 

Unfortunately, when we went for afternoon tea it was typical British weather and poured with rain all afternoon. Luckily we were welcomed into the front room of Leasowe Castle with a roaring fire and a huge Christmas Tree. Whilst we settled down and warmed up with a hot cup of tea, the lovely Lucy Mayhew was just setting up and we were treated to a beautiful acoustic guitar set whilst we enjoyed our afternoon tea.

The entire afternoon tea was completely festive themed, everything from the tea and mulled wine to the sandwiches and clotted cream for the scones everything had it's own festive touch to it. Whilst I am a bit of fussy eater with sandwich fillings, there was a great selection that my mum loved including turkey and cranberry, stuffing, and salmon. I have a big sweet tooth especially when it comes to scones with jam and clotted cream so I loved the dessert selection that came with it, especially the snowman shaped cake! The touch of cinnamon in the clotted cream was a surprising but actually very nice twist on the traditional version.

With endless pots of tea, we had such a lovely afternoon and it was the perfect end to the festive period (of which I spent most of it at work). I also got to spend the afternoon doing something with my mum, yes I see her at home but it doesn't beat actually going and doing something nice with your family! After my second visit to Leasowe Castle I definitely need to head back for a dinner soon (I mean we have a couple of special events coming up soon so it'd be perfect timing!).

What's your favourite part of afternoon tea?

Speak to you next time!
