It wouldn't be Christmas on my blog without a blog post about festive afternoon tea! I feel like this is becoming a bit of an annual Christmas tradition for me to go for afternoon tea with either friends or family in December.  I was very kindly invited to kick off my December with the lovely folks at The Shankly Hotel to try out their festive afternoon tea and you know that I had head along with my gorgeous friend Yasmina

The Shankly Hotel is an entire hotel dedicated to Bill Shankly, one of Liverpool football clubs greatest managers. It's situated right next to Liverpool One and a short walk away from transport links so it's really easy to get to. All their rooms are designed for comfort and style, being some of the most luxurious accommodation in the city centre. They're also 2.5 times bigger than your standard hotel room with to die for bathrooms and great views, so what isn't there to love?! 

Whilst your standard afternoon tea is great, The Shankly are taking it one step further with their amazing themed afternoon teas and their festive one during December is just incredible and so unique! Their festive afternoon tea is only £14.95 per person for the afternoon tea with tea or coffee or you can treat yourself and for only £19.95 per person, you get the afternoon tea with tea or coffee with some prosecco as well. 

Our afternoon at The Shankly started off with a glass of prosecco whilst we checked out the afternoon tea menu and were kindly asked if we had any dietary requirements so they could make changes as needed to the afternoon tea. We got the chance to take a million and one photos and have a good gab with prosecco in hand before our tea and food arrived. We weren't waiting long at all for our afternoon tea to arrive and boy was it such a pretty set-up when it arrived. The afternoon tea was served on a silver 3-tiered stand topped with a bauble filled with macarons and they even brought us our own gingerbread house complete with miniature mince pies. The first layer of the tiered stand is filled to the brim with a selection of festive-themed sandwiches and wraps including roast turkey wraps, smoked salmons with cream cheese and roasted butternut squash and feta wraps. I am usually a super fussy so and so and I was actually super impressed with the sandwiches cause I actually tried almost all of them which is something that is very rare for me and I found out thanks to Yasmina that I'm actually a fan of smoked salmon!  

After we'd had our fill of the sandwiches and wraps (honestly if we'd eaten all of them that would have been me set for the day so we saved some), it was time to move onto all the cakes and sweet treats that were included. Whilst we had the traditional scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, they also had an amazing range of festive-themed treats for us to enjoy. My favourites were most definitely the gingerbread cookies/gingerbread house (that is a huge feat as I normally can't eat gingerbread even though I love them cause they completely burn the back of my throat when I try to eat them!) and the reindeer yule log but they did also have a winter berry tart, mini portion of Christmas cake, as well as a mini pavlova.

The Shankly afternoon tea is one of the best afternoon tea I've been to in Liverpool, both myself and Yasmina were so impressed with how much you get for your money (she even compared it to an afternoon tea she'd had at another place in Liverpool for the same place and the differences were shocking!) and how delicious everything was, even the prosecco that came with it was so smooth and delicious. I'd highly recommend checking out their afternoon tea, they take walk-in's but I'd recommend booking it in to ensure you can definitely get it. I can't wait to head back and check out the menu in the Bastion bar & restaurant and their normal afternoon tea.

Are you a fan of afternoon tea?

Speak to you next time!
