‘Be Our Guest’ – Beauty and The Beast Inspired Afternoon Tea

This wonderful Beauty and The Beast inspired Afternoon Tea is one of my very favourites. The Parlour was completely transformed into a magical fantasy world of Beauty and the Beast. You are transported into another place and time. With rose garlands, chandeliers, fairy lights and themed decorations, the grandeur of the The Parlour at Mad Dogs and Englishmen will surely take your breath away. Accompanied by Mrs Potts and Chip, this afternoon tea features wonderful theming based on the much loved tale of Beauty and The Beast.

The Savouries

The Beast’s Banquet starts with your round of savouries beautifully presented on a traditional 3 tiered cake stand. The top tier was filled with mini french toasts and the bottom two tiers had a wonderful selection of freshly made sandwiches. They were very well filled and simply delicious. One of the great things about this, was the sheer amount of sandwiches available. We received Chicken with Taragon mayonnaise, Ham and Mustard, Cheese and Onion Chutney and lastly Cucumber and mint. You can also request plain sandwiches for those fussier eaters.

The Sweet Stuff

The sweets were a real treat with this Beauty and the Beast inspired afternoon tea. You receive home baked warm scones served in one of Belles’s books together with clotted cream and Tiptree jam. Alongside your scones comes a glass dome with an impressive fruit meringue tower, surrounded by themed sweets treats. Belle and the Beast iced cookies, Cogsworth Salted Caramel and Chocolate Tart, ‘Try the Grey stuff it’s delicious’ dessert and a refreshing summer jelly with fallen rose petal.

Both the scones and sweet treats were thoroughly enjoyable. There was even enough to take home, in the cutest cake boxes.
