The Hilton- Afternoon Tea Christmas style!

Last week Mrs. J and I went along to the Hilton for the launch of their Christmas Cocktails and Christmas Afternoon Tea at the Metropole Lounge.

Our coats were taken and we were shown into the chilled out lounge area to a table displaying the various cocktails and afternoon teas on offer, including one for men complete with a mini burger and a whiskey!

After chatting to some of the accommodating Hilton staff, we took a seat and were brought a Christmas cocktail aptly named ‘A Partridge in a Pair Tree’ and a cake stand filled with Christmas themed delights! We dug into the Christmas shaped sandwiches and then worked our way down to the generous helping of cakes and sweets.

Hightlights were the Christmas tree iced biscuit, the snowman cupcake and the mini mince pies. There were also lots of cocktail samples doing the rounds which were a nice accompaniment to the cakes.

The Metropole Lounge is a very nice venue, made even better by the musician that was playing while we were there. Singing her own acoustic versions of well-known songs, she was outstanding! I would go back just to listen to her beautiful voice.

The Hilton have lots of themed afternoon teas including a recent Halloween one which is a very good idea. Priced at £19.95 with mulled wine or £14.95 without, I think it will appeal to lots of shoppers during the Christmas rush. I would be interested to go along on a normal day to sample the orignal Welsh version complete with tea as I’ve heard they have an impressive selection!

Christmas Afternoon Tea is available until 30th December so if the Christmas shopping madness all become too much, you know where to go!
