What did you get up to?
My mum and I recently went for an Afternoon Tea with Bubbly at the stunning Colwick Hall in Nottingham.
This place is a fantastic little hidden gem, nestled in between the edge of Nottingham racecourse and the banks of the River Trent, it was hard to believe we were only 10 minutes from the city centre!
The food itself was fresh, and absolutely delicious. It was served by a super friendly waitress, and included the traditional selection of sandwiches, cakes, and scones, but also a little mini spiced carrot and orange soup which was a lovely twist on the traditional Afternoon Tea. There were so many cakes that although we tried our best we just couldn’t finish them all, so our lovely waitress offered to box them up for us to take home.
What did you enjoy the most?
Without doubt the best part of the experience was simply enjoying the peaceful, relaxed atmosphere and quirky décor.
Colwick Hall is a stunning Palladian style Georgian Hall and all of the original features have been preserved beautifully, with modern touches also added to create a really unique look inside.
Of course I also have to mention the mini Victoria sponges – easily the best I have ever tasted!
My top tip would be to take a leisurely walk around the lovely grounds after you have eaten, if you have time. Do check with the staff first though in case there is a wedding going on!
The ‘best’ part of the building is at the back which directly overlooks the river and has manicured gardens and a fountain to walk around – perfect for working off (some of) those clotted cream calories!
