Morning loves, today I have a little bit of a different post for you, instead of beauty I am talking food/lifestyle. Last weekend I went for Afternoon Tea at Patisserie Valerie with my best friend (hi Yasmin) and I thought I would share it with you. It was an amazing deal so I took a few snaps for you all just so you can see what it entails.
Afternoon tea is a really popular British custom, however it can get quite pricey ranging from £20+ per person. When I stumbled across an afternoon tea at Patisserie Valerie deal, I knew I had to snap it up. It seemed a little bit too good to be true as there was so much for just £19, but I decided to go for it regardless as I really like Patesserie Valerie. The deal entails: ‘A selection of ten finger sandwiches, two quiches, four scones with jam and cream, two mini cakes slices, two mini cakes, two chocolate éclairs and a refillable pot of tea/coffee.’
However there definitely is a little bit of a catch, the quiche and cakes were a lot smaller than I expected. I have to admit I let my imagination run with me a little, I expected huge slices of quiche and a full sized chocolate eclair and I was a little surprised at the mini sizes. That being said, there is more than enough food for two people and we didn’t even manage to finish it all between the two of us. The sandwiches were nice and fresh, and we had enough nibbles to go along with our conversation.
Although it isn’t a posh high tea afternoon tea experience, this is nevertheless a really good deal. We did a bit of shopping on Oxford St/Caranaby St in London and popped in to Patisserie Valerie to quench our thirst. With cups of tea going for almost £5 around Central London, all this food for £9.50 each was a steal. It is a really nice experience as well, a chance to catch up over something both visually and actually appetising.
Overall I think it was a really good experience, something nice and relaxing that doesn’t break the bank too much. If you are looking for a really fancy Afternoon Tea experience, this definitely isn’t the deal for you. However if you are looking for somewhere to relax and catch up after a shopping session or something similar, I would highly recommend giving this deal a go.
You can pick up for your deal for £19 here. It is valid pretty much nationwide bar a handful of locations.
I hope you liked today’s post, it is a little bit different to the usual beauty babble but I thought I would share it with you all as I can imagine it being of interest to quite a few people. If you do go along, let me know what you think of the experience. If you have any questions, feel free to pop them below. Tanzina x
