A Quintessentially English Afternoon Treat

Last week I had a real treat.

I'd arranged to take my friend out for afternoon tea for her birthday.

Neither of us could have predicted how kind the British weather would be to us.

We had an absolutely wonderful afternoon, sitting in the warm sunshine, chatting the hours away, whilst drinking tea .... from a pot .... and enjoying, what ended up being a very filling afternoon tea!!

We went to Manley's Brasserie at The Old School House just outside Hints village in between Tamworth and Lichfield.

Afternoon tea currently costs £15 per person, so it is a bit pricey, but definitely a real nice treat.

We had a selection of sandwiches consisting of cream cheese & cucumber, smoked salmon, egg, ham & Turkey and a good selection of small cakes and pastries and two scones each.  

This was accompanied by as much tea as we could possible drink!
I've had afternoon tea here once before and they are very accommodating.  If there is something that you don't like then they are happy to substitute an alternative, which has been very handy on both times I've visited.

We couldn't have asked for a nicer way to spend the afternoon.

So, whilst yes it is a bit pricey, if you fancy a treat, then I would definitely recommend it .... and if you can also book the British sunshine then so much the better.
