We were greeted by lovely staff, and offered a British Royal Cocktail upon arrival; however being on good behaviour with my Mum and all that, I thought it best to stick to tea.
After settling in (and waving hi to Sam!) we were given a huge three tiered selection of treats, yay! Sandwiches, cakes and all the pastry goodies you could want. Included were coronation chicken, smoked salmon and egg and cress sandwiches, which my mum absolutely loved. I’m a fussy sort of sandwich person (okay I’m boring and stick to cheese and ham) so I was happy to let her have them all. Luckily for me though there was also a great selection of cakes!
Lmeon and earl grey cake, salted caramel profiteroles, Pimms jelly topped creme brûlée and finally, my favourite; the red velvet. They were all absolutely AMAZING. The problem was that they were so, so good; I had trouble resisting scoffing them all. And when you’re trying to eat a little healthier, this is a challenge haha! But honestly, it was worth it to ‘cheat’ for the day.
However one of the most surprising things of the whole selection was the scones. While I do like a scone, I wouldn’t say I’m generally ‘excited’ by one, they’re alright I guess. However after trying one from Browns, my world has been changed. It was the most beautiful scone I’ve ever tasted; warm and baked to perfection, and leaving you wanting more. Mum agreed, and she’s a fussy cow too.
A huge thank you to Browns for allowing us to try the selection, it was so appreciated. I thoroughly recommend you all get down there and try the Royal British Afternoon Tea while it’s still on, and really get a taste of the good life.
