If you’re stuck for Mother’s Day gift ideas, why not forego the flowers, and instead opt for an experience you can both enjoy. And as far as experiences in Manchester and Cheshire go, you can’t go far wrong with afternoon tea. There’s no better way to while away a few hours, in a way you couldn’t in a restaurant.
There’s also something incredibly fancy about sitting in a nice hotel, eating finger sandwiches and scones, and sipping tea from fine china. For an afternoon, you can feel rather grand.
We headed over to Mottram Hall to taste get a glimpse of their Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea, prepared by Mottram Hall’s pastry chef, Emma Hughes. We enjoyed a selection of freshly cut mini sandwiches and savouries before tucking into warm scones with clotted cream and jam, and a selection of sweet treats. This was accompanied by an extensive range of speciality leaf teas and coffees.
