The Parlour at Mad Dogs and Englishmen
The Parlour at Mad Dogs and Englishmen are renowned for their themed afternoon teas in Leigh on Sea. Not only are their afternoon teas perfectly created to match the theme, but so is the whole venue! It is easy to see why Mad Dogs and Englishmen have earnt their great reputation and why they feature on the list of ‘The Best Afternoon Teas In Essex‘. We were lucky to go to the ‘Be Our Guest’ – Beauty and the Beast inspired Afternoon Tea at Mad Dogs and Englishmen. We were not disappointed, it was am incredible themed afternoon tea experience in Essex!
What is included in the ‘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 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.
The drinks to accompany the Beauty and the Beast inspired afternoon tea are unlimited. You can choose from 6 loose leaf teas, a cafetiere of coffee, fresh apple or orange juice.
