I feel like afternoon tea is becoming a bit of a running theme here on my blog and I'm still finding more new places you can visit in town for afternoon tea. However this time the afternoon tea is a little bit different, in fact it's a whole lot different and is even Parisian themed! A few weeks back, the lovely folks at Bistro Franc invited me to check out the new afternoon tea that's just launched and of course I jumped at the chance to go and review it.

As nice as afternoon tea is, once you've gone a couple of times the standard afternoon does get a bit samey, so a Parisian style afternoon tea is a perfect way to change up an old English classic. I also feel like it should be some kind of afternoon tea law that you take either your best friend or your mother with you! So, of course, I took my mother along with me to try out the new afternoon tea from Bistro Franc.

If you've never been in Bistro Franc, the interior is completely French-themed with beautiful chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, lovely french pictures adjourning the walls and even a super cute bicycle with a huge bunch of flowers in the basket. Bistro Franc is such a lovely place to come for any occasion, dinner with family, afternoon tea with your bestie for their birthday, drinks before going out or even coming for a celebratory meal.

Despite being a Parisian style afternoon tea, the tea passed the test, it was really nice and before I knew me and my mum had drunk the whole pot! With the afternoon tea, you can get any hot drink you wish or if you really want to treat yourself you can have a nice glass of chilled bubbly for an extra £4. 

The afternoon tea comes beautifully presented on tiered slate boards, we were surprised how much actually came with the afternoon tea, the slate boards were rammed full of treats for us to enjoy. There was so much there for us to try that we actually had to move to a larger table next to us, just to accommodate our tea and the beautiful tiered slates that housed all the food. Instead of coming with small finger sandwiches, Bistro Franc have switched it up and gone for a variety of wraps in a selection of veggie and non-veggie choices (with 2/3 choices veggie-friendly) so even if you forget to tell them you or your friend are vegetarians you're still covered. My favourite part of any afternoon tea is always the sweet part (I have a major sweet tooth!) and I was truly spoilt for choice with all the desserts portion of the tea. My mums favourite was the apple pastry and I even managed to introduce her to the world of creme brulees which she really liked. My favourites had to be the croissants with creme and the mini creme brulees in an espresso cup, I mean who doesn't love miniature creme brulees with a hot cup of tea on the side?! 

Myself and my mum were overwhelmed with how many treats we still had left, it's safe to say there was more than enough for two people, there was more than enough for 3 people to be comfortably full. We had so many leftovers that we ended up taking some home for the boys to try. It's such a unique take on afternoon tea which I think will attract a lot of people as it's something different and not just the standard cucumber sandwiches and scones and you can even add camembert and garlic breadsticks for only an extra £2 per person. Who wouldn't want to add melty, gooey cheese?!

I think it makes the perfect little afternoon treat, whether you want to celebrate a promotion at work, someone's birthday or simply just treat yourself! It's available every day from noon and you can book it in for only £10.95 per person or £14.95 with the added glass of prosecco. I can't wait to see a festive version (yes I'm already looking forward to Christmas!).

Where's your favourite place to visit for afternoon tea?

Speak to you next time!
