A couple of years ago, afternoon tea came back into fashion with hotels and restaurants across the UK rushing to lay on platters of freshly made and sandwiches that were accompanied with a glass of fizz or pot of tea for guests. However, fast forward to today and the 'traditional' concept of it has changed massively...and we love it!
Chefs have been let loose with their artistic skills and started creating unique menus that replace cakes and scones with items such as chicken wings, mini burgers and nachos. We've picked some of the most unique afternoon teas around; check them out below!
