“Tee” for two
The Mere Golf Resort and Spa is celebrating National Afternoon Tea Week (11th-17th August 2014) with the launch of new menus created with both men and women in mind! Visitors to the 150-acre resort will be able to enjoy an afternoon at The Mere, whilst indulging in diverse menus and a selection of the finest pastries the region has to offer.
Marking a celebration of the quintessentially great British tradition, the menus have been designed by executive head chef Mark Walker. Commenting on the new menus, Walker said; “Afternoon tea tends to be viewed with a female bias. However over the last few months we have noticed an increasing number of men taking afternoon tea in the resort, both over business meetings and for more informal get-togethers with friends.”
He continued; “We wanted to put a twist on the more traditional menu and introduce some mouth watering recipes with chaps in mind. We came up with the idea of replacing cucumber sandwiches with mini cheese burgers with chilli jam relish, mini hot dogs with onions and mini Yorkshire puddings with roast beef; we’ve even thrown in a iced cider shot! It’s the perfect pick up after 18 holes or for those just wanting to relax in stunning surroundings.”
For the ladies, The Mere has put a twist on its traditional afternoon tea and introduced the Pimms Afternoon Tea. The menu includes a selection of finger sandwiches, baked fruit scones, a summer selection of cakes and Mini Mere Mess, its version of a classic Eton Mess alongside a jug of Pimms.
Afternoon tea at The Mere is available in Browns, its gourmet brasserie set in relaxed airy surroundings beneath a giant glass Atrium roof, the Browns bar as well as the more informal Club Lounge and Bar overlooking the Mere lake.
National Afternoon Tea Week celebrates this great heritage with a week of activities, themed menus and offers in hotels, restaurants and tearooms across the UK in August. For further information visit www.afternoontea.co.uk.
