With the new year comes a number of new menus at The Midland Hotel’s Tea Room, including a refreshed Vegan Afternoon Tea and Traditional Afternoon Tea.

Perfect for all those enjoying Veganuary this month (and beyond), the Vegan Afternoon Tea offers a range of sandwiches which includes the likes of Coronation Tempeh on Brown Bread, Heritage Carrot Tartar on White Bread and Roasted Red Pepper, Vegan Cheese and Rocket on Brown Bread.

Alongside freshly baked sultana and plain vegan scones, served with sweetened soy cream and Mrs Darlington’s jams, there is also a beautiful selection of cakes, including Dark Chocolate Sponge, with Chocolate Ganache & Frosted Walnuts, Cinnamon Scented Banana Cake and Olive Oil and Pistachio Polenta Cake.

The Vegan Afternoon Tea Menu is £28 per person and is available seven days a week.

The Traditional Afternoon Tea menu has also seen some changes, with an array of tasty sandwiches on offer, including Roast Yorkshire Beef with Horseradish and Watercress on Brown Bread and Burford Brown Egg and Mustard Cress on Brioche Bun.

The mouth-watering array of cakes includes an Apple and Caramel Crumble, a Dark Chocolate and Orange Sachertorte and Duck Egg Custard Tart with Yorkshire Rhubarb, washed down with a range of premium loose leaf tea.

The Traditional Afternoon Tea menu is £28 per person and is also available seven days a week. Both the Vegan Afternoon Tea and Traditional Afternoon Tea can be upgraded to include a glass of Bouche Cuvee Brut, which increases the cost to £38 per person.

A stalwart on the Manchester social scene since the hotel opened in 1903, The Midland’s afternoon tea has been a mainstay on the menu for over a century. There are a whole range of afternoon tea menus to choose from, including Traditional Afternoon Tea, Royal Afternoon Tea, Vegetarian Afternoon Tea, Vegan Afternoon Tea and Gluten Afternoon Tea.

There is also a Children’s Afternoon Tea available and last year the Tea Room recently launched its first Brunch menu, which is available daily from 10:30 – 13:30.

Afternoon Tea at the Tea Room can be booked online. Advance bookings are advisable.

Afternoon Tea is available Monday – Friday 13:00 – 16.30 and Saturday – Sunday, 12.30 – 18:30.
