From high tea to G&T, what’s your afternoon tea style?

Yo Sushi

If you like the idea of an afternoon tea, but cakes and finger sandwiches aren’t for you, then Yo Sushi might just be the solution. You’ll be spoilt for choice as you tuck into a variety of different types of the popular Japanese dish, with plenty of sushi options to choose from. To find out more, click here.

Chez Mal at Malmaison

At Chez Mal, you can tailor your afternoon tea to your mood, from classic cream tea to G&T. If it’s the classic you’re after, expect scones, tarts and brownies, but for something a little bit different why not try the ‘Chez Mal’ tea, where you’ll be presented with Cucumber & Cream Cheese Bagels, Louisiana Sliders, Seasonal Cheesecake and plenty more delectable nibbles. Click here to find out more.

Dirty Martini

So, it might not be a conventional afternoon tea (as there’s actually no tea involved at all), but if you’re looking for something to help you step into the weekend the right way, the Martini Brunch has just landed at Dirty Martini on Bennetts Hill! Not only will you receive up to four delicious martinis and bottomless prosecco, you’ll also get a birdcage full of treats, including bitesize burgers, spring rolls and halloumi wraps. To find out more, click here

Harvey Nichols

For a more traditional approach, head to the stylish Harvey Nichols Brasserie where you can enjoy an assortment of handmade sandwiches, cakes, fizz and cocktails, and for those looking for guilt-free indulgence, there’s even a range of healthy tipples. Served Monday to Saturday from 1pm-4pm and Sundays from 3pm-5pm, this is perfect every day of the week, whether you’re having a mid-week treat or raising a glass at the weekend. To book, please call 0121 616 6028 or email here.


Served from 2pm to 5pm daily, this is an afternoon tea with a spicy twist. First things first, you’ll be served a freshly brewed Masala Chai tea before moving on to Bombay Sandwiches, Samosas, Puri and Chicken Tikka. Then comes the sweet stuff, where you’ll choose from spice-infused scones, cookies and macarons and if you’re looking for some fizz to accompany your food, try the Chai Wala cocktail (a blend of prosecco and spices) for just £5 extra. To find out more, click here.
