The St. Ermin's Hotel has launched a delicious new children's 'Mini Gardener' Afternoon Tea.
The younger members of the family can enjoy their very own teatime delights and go on an adventure to see the Hotel's 350,000 Buckfast Honeybees hard at work on the third floor Bee Terrace. St. Ermin's Hotel are proud to have their own Rooftop Garden in addition to the busy bee colony and the new afternoon tea has been created to showcase the best fresh produce of the season.
The new menu includes a variety of sandwiches and seasonal sweet treats including a marshmallow lollipop dipped in milk chocolate, banana sponge with milk chocolate and caramelised peanuts and an apple, blackberry and custard slice. A 'decorate your own gingerbread' provides a creative activity to keep your busy bees entertained. Kids also receive a sweet gardening pack from Mud & Bloom including organic seeds to take home and plant in the garden. All teas are served with freshly baked scones, clotted cream and homemade jam.
Afternoon Tea is served daily in the pretty Tea Lounge, with children's tea available during school holidays and at weekends.
