The Grand Launches Most Decadent Afternoon Tea
Saturday 16 December 2017
The Grand Hotel & Spa, York – Yorkshire’s only AA-rated five-star hotel – is launching a new Afternoon Tea, the Grand High Tea, offering a luxurious and exclusive dining experience.
On Saturday 16 December, guests are invited to experience service with a fine-dining finesse and indulge in the delights of the freshest locally-sourced ingredients. Set in the opulent splendour of the Edwardian building, guests will be transported to a time gone by at The Grand’s three AA Rosette restaurant, Hudsons, for an unforgettable dining experience.
The Grand High Tea is expertly prepared with mouth-watering savouries and pastries while the traditional sandwiches are silver served, for an opulent experience. Shortly following is award-winning Head Chef Craig Atchinson’s amuse-bouche boasting the best seasonally and ethically sourced ingredients to satisfy all taste buds.
Scones are served warm with cream and preserves, and indulgent and delicious cakes are presented and served from a cake cart. The centrepiece of the afternoon tea is of course the drinks itself. Selected by The Grand’s resident tea connoisseur, guests will be able to choose from a selection of the finest teas throughout the service that complement the dishes perfectly, along with a glass of Perrier-Jouet champagne to add that extra special touch.
Philip Bolson, General Manager at The Grand Hotel & Spa, said: “We are delighted to launch our Grand High Tea, offering the best quintessential British experience to our guests. We strive on making every experience at The Grand seamless and with handwritten menus and a live pianist, our Grand High Tea is designed to provide the epitome of elegant dining and sumptuous English flair. We look forward to welcoming guests on Saturday 16 December as we launch our Grand High Tea for the first time.”
The Grand High Tea is designed to create the most sumptuous experience for guests. Price is £65 per person which includes a glass of Perrier-Jouet champagne served from a magnum bottle. Seating times are 2pm, 2.25pm, 2.30pm, and 2.45pm. Bookings are necessary as spaces are limited. To book or for more information, please call 01904 380 045.
