Hello my lovelies! I think by now you all know I love my afternoon tea! Actually I think love is an understatement! So I was delighted when my family planned a trip to the Merrion Hotel to have their Art afternoon tea. First of all lets get the important bit out of the way. What did I wear?! I continued my obsession of wearing navy! I’m wearing a new navy coat from Zara (I’m obsessed with it), dress from Whistles, my Ash boots, Louis Vuitton scarf , tights from Tights Dept and Celine handbag.
Now on to the main event, afternoon Tea. The Merrion Hotel is beautiful, a mix of old world charm and modern art. The tea is served in the drawing room which is fabulous large room BUT I was disappointed to find our table was not nearly big enough for us and the seats were far too low. We probably would have asked to be moved to a different table if they had not all been full! Aside from this inconvenience we had a lovely afternoon.
The food was delicious and plentiful. We had two boxes of leftovers to take home which I always love as a midnight snack! The stand out pieces was the last course where the chef makes sweet creations based on art found in the hotel. This is what, in my opinion elevated it from an average to a something special tea. Another hit for me were the chicken and pesto sandwiches from the first savoury course. They were delicious and we ordered a second serving! I would definitely go back again but I’ll just be sure to reserve a larger table and higher seats!
