Manchester’s Lowry Hotel​ started serving afternoon tea to guests three years ago in the River Bar before its burgeoning popularity prompted a move to the hotel’s larger restaurant area.

The Lowry charges £19.50 for afternoon tea. For that guests get finger sandwiches, a mini prawn cocktail, home-made scones with the works, pastries and a wide range of teas from the more traditional Ceylon and Earl Grey teas to herbal infusions such as Camomile or Peppermint – all specially selected by the hotel’s own Tea Sommelier. A glass of Champagne can be added for £10.

As the Lowry states, it likes to offer afternoon tea with a twist so isn’t afraid to make changes to the menu. Mulled wine makes an appearance at Christmas for example. However, one thing will remain a constant – the scones: “We tend to change the pastries but we never leave out the home-made scones with jam and cream they are far too popular!” says Restaurant Manager Marc Whitley.
