I thought I would start to share a few ideas for Mother's Day coming up at the end of this month. There are many afternoon tea sessions going on now at most tea rooms and restaurants and they are a great treat for any occasion really.
The Old Bell in Derby are offering a very tasty menu here with lots of tea to choose from, in fact nine different varieties including the classic English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Green Tea, Assam, Rooibos and fruit tea too. I think I could quite easily knock myself out with all those flavours, talk about afternoon tea, I would be there all evening as well.
The menu looks yummy two with a fabulous choice of sandwiches, scones and other sweet treats. It's making my taste buds go bonkers just reading the menu and it's silly o'clock in the morning. My porridge in a couple of hours is going to seem slightly disappointing I can tell you.
All this for the very reasonable price of £16.50 and with added Prosecco it's only £22.50 which I think is not bad at all. Now I have had some very boozy nights at The Old Bell in my younger days so this place has been a bit of a blur in the past but my goodness you are in for a real treat as you will take afternoon tea in their Campion room which is very nice. This hotel is one of Derby's oldest buildings steeped in history (more interesting than my nights out) so it is worth a visit.
You could combine your afternoon tea with a shopping trip as there are lots of shops in the area to visit and I cannot think of anything more perfect than a lot of tea, sandwiches and cakes waiting for me after a bit of retail therapy. You can book online or treat your special someone to a gift voucher, all the details are here on The Old Bell Hotel's website:
