Afternoon Tea for Two
For Mother’s Day this year, my brother bought a gift voucher for afternoon tea for two in Adare Manor, Limerick, for my mother and me. We debated making a reservation for Mother’s Day itself but decided that it would be too busy that day, so we waited a few weeks instead.
Was it worth the wait? Absolutely! When we arrived we were the only people having afternoon tea, and we had a table with plush high backed chairs, seated by the window overlooking the gardens.
I ordered the Vegetarian Afternoon Tea, and my mother ordered the Traditional Afternoon Tea. The scones and desserts were common to both – only the sandwich layer differed. I had vegetable samosa, goats cheese with red onion jam, cucumber and cream cheese, and an egg mayonnaise sandwich – with the crusts cut off of course!
My mother’s sandwiches included a chicken wrap, a croissant with ham and cheese, a salad sandwich and a smoked salmon sandwich.
We couldn’t finish it all! One of those delicious scones was left behind by each of us. 🙂
The food was accompanied by a pot of tea, and the whole meal was finished off with a glass of Prosecco. All in all, a lovely relaxing afternoon out.
Thanks Anthony! Much appreciated!
