Patisserie Valerie Afternoon Tea

It's no secret that I love Afternoon Tea! So when Chris surprised me with a voucher for the Patisserie Valerie Afternoon Tea whilst in Bath, I was pretty chuffed!

The best bit is that you do not have to book this Afternoon Tea, you just turn up in store. The lovely ladies inside the Bath Patisserie Valerie asked us to take a seat at any table we like and we were swiftly offered drinks. Controversially, feeling a bit tired, we both actually opted for coffee! I'm so glad I did though, as I had a latte and it was actually one of the best I've ever had. There was a short wait for food and then the traditional Afternoon Tea tower arrived. 

We had five little finger sandwhiches each, which varied slightly from the menu, but were still all really nice. They are fresh, moist and each had a fair amount of filling inside. We also each had a little mini quiche each, which is something a little different and it was actually warm which was lovely! On the next layer up we had four WARM scones, two plain and two with raisins. I've been to some pretty posh Afternoon Tea places and even they served cold scones, so warm scones were a pleasant surprise. The scones were accompanied by two pots of jam (one strawberry and one raspberry) and a large pot of clotted cream. On the top layer we had an assortment of mini cakes; two chocolate eclairs, victoria sponge cake, carrot cake, chocolate cake and fruity mousse cake. All of which were delicious and left us wishing for seconds. 

The Patisserie Valerie Afternoon Tea is being served in lots of stores and it seems to be getting some pretty mixed reviews depending on where you eat. Some people seem to be getting a variety of different levels of service and standard of food, so I was a little disheartened. Although, I have to say from the minute we walked into Patisserie Valerie Bath we were really impressed. When you consider that this Afternoon Tea only costs £25, I was pretty damn impressed by the quality of the food. It's even better value when you grab a voucher from Amazon Local for only £19, it's honestly a great Afternoon Tea and it doesn't break the bank.
