Review by Liz Smart
It was a lovely experience - a birthday present and easy to book.
14 March 2017
If you thought that Afternoon Tea was the preserve of the English, then the premium French version of the treat served exclusively at Brasserie Blanc will certainly make you think twice. Choose between five fantastic venues for this traditional treat served with a French twist – Charlotte Street, in the bustling West End, Belvedere Road on the Southbank, Tower Bridge near the City, Bristol or Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire.
Choose your specialty tea or infusion from the renowned Tea Pigs range or coffee if that's preferred, and tuck into a generous supply of freshly cut finger sandwiches made with delicious savoury fillings, scones served with homemade jam and Devonshire clotted cream, and the famous lemon drizzle cake, made to Maman Blanc’s original recipe. The French influences continue as you both enjoy a glass of bespoke French bubbly - perfect for toasting the continuing harmony of Anglo-French relations - and for some added ‘ooh la la’ you’ll find a selection of delicious Brasserie Blanc desserts including Madeleines Au Chocolat, Chocolate ‘Delice’ Mousse Slice and fresh seasonal berries and fruit puree with Crème Chantilly.
On the afternoon of your booking you and your guest will arrive at your choice of five Brasserie Blanc restaurants. Afternoon Tea is served between 15.00 and 17.00 – perfect if you want to combine your treat with some shopping or sight-seeing beforehand.
On arrival you’ll be shown to your table and served with your choice of tea or coffee, a selection of freshly prepared finger sandwiches, scones served with fresh cream and homemade jam, and lemon drizzle cake. You will also receive a glass of French sparkling wine each - successful and delicious union of French and English teatime traditions.
