A magical afternoon at The Milestone Hotel

The Milestone Hotel during the Festive Season
We were quickly seated in the Park Lounge, a very traditional English tea room, only featuring around 6 tables. Crisp white napkins, table cloths, sliver teapots and delicate china setted the theme of our afternoon tea : traditional and classic.

We opted for The Milestone Champagne Afternoon Tea featuring a generous glass of Champagne, a fantastic selection of finger sandwiches such as smoked Scottish salmon and cream cheese, free-range egg mayonnaise and Hampshire watercress, roast ham and English mustard, mull of Kintyre cheddar and tomato and cucumber. Very classic selection but perfectly in line with the traditional setting. My favourite was definitely the rounded shaped chicken mayonnaise with chopped almonds!

Two delicious plate of pastries were served with sweets including a wonderful chocolate brownie ! Seasonal pastries such as minced pies (not a fan but my guest definitely loved them), a Festive Cupcake and a Christmas cake with a gorgeous fushia marzipan were prepared for the occasion. Not forgetting the joyful mini tartelette of fruits, the éclair and the classic sponge cake which completed the sweet plates.

When we thought we were finishing our plates, our waiter bring us some freshly baked scones with Devonshire clotted cream and preserves. The scones were just coming out of the oven so still warm, delicious! What could we have asked for ? More Champagne ? Tea ? “No problem Mam’”. They obviously didn’t want us to leave too quickly so we obliged…
