Afternoon Tea at the Edgbaston 

Last week, myself and some Mummy friends (and two bumps) treated ourselves to a girly catch-up and afternoon tea.

For most this meant a nice baby free afternoon, but I took my littlest munchkin along for the ride (he will get used to being dragged around with Mummy I’m sure). My monkey was off at nursery for the day, thank god, as there was no way he would have behaved.

We went to The Edgbaston, which is a boutique hotel in the centre of Birmingham, which is right on my doorstep. You would miss it if you didn’t know it was there as looks like a grand private residence on a street of many others.

The lobby is tastefully decorated in black and gold and makes a very fine first impression, which continues on into the  1920’s themed cocktail lounge where afternoon tea is served daily between 12 and 5.  I loved all the little details and especially the vintage crockery. There was a very luxurious feel to the decor, service and food.

To kick off the afternoon tea there was a little food theatrics which was impressive (not that it takes much to impress me having not been ‘out’ in 4 weeks). It was the perfect environment to have a girly catch-up without our toddlers, and the tea, cake, artisan sandwiches and scones were all delicious!

I’ve tried afternoon tea at various places and have found the prices differ so much. I was surprised that The Edgbaston’s afternoon tea starts from £20 per person (which is the one we opted for); a very reasonable price tag for yummy food, with high quality service and presentation in a luxury setting. I will leave you with some photos…
