Hotel Gotham: Festive Afternoon Tea


Yesterday I had the pleasure of visiting Hotel Gotham to sample their Festive Afternoon Tea. A Manchester treasure, Gotham is recognised as one of the most prestigious buildings in Manchester, consisting of a hotel, Honey restaurant and Club Brass, a members only bar overlooking Manchester City centre.


We were first welcomed into Club Brass for a cocktail of choice while we waited.

The first thing that struck me was the decor - it was so festive and grand. I loved all of the glitzy decorations which contrasted with the minimalistic decor perfectly.



Time for a drink! I opted for the Bakewell Tart Fizz, a gorgeous cocktail served in a champagne glass with Sipsmith Sloe Gin, Amaretto, Sparkling Wine & Lemon Zest.


This was delicious - I would highly recommend this drink! It wasn’t too strong and the flavour wasn’t overpowering either. The presentation was also really cute!




The Festive Afternoon Tea includes:

Sandwiches
- turkey, bacon & Cranberry
- oat smoked salmon with lemon crème fraîche 
- duck egg mayonnaise & mustard cress
- cucumber, cream cheese, red onion & dill

2x scones per person served with Dorset clotted cream and strawberry jam.

Desserts
- eggnogg choux bun
- red velvet cake
- black cherry & chocolate macaroon 
- gingerbread rocky road

Vegan and vegetarian menus are available upon request.


We were first introduced to each of the tea blends and provided with a sample to aid our selection. I thought this touch was so different and I loved it.


I opted for the Planter’s Afternoon blend as this was closest to English Breakfast and I love this with an afternoon tea! It complemented both the sweet and savoury dishes perfectly as it was not too fragrant.

The afternoon tea was lovely. We had a glass of Prosecco on the side which is always a nice treat (especially on a Monday afternoon)! I particularly enjoyed the festive sandwich and the red velvet cake. 



The decor was also amazing in Honey Restaurant. I love the large bay windows overlooking Manchester and their Christmas garlands are unmatched. Such a pretty setting to spend an afternoon in!





“Lutyens” Afternoon Tea - £25.00
Afternoon Tea with a glass of Prosecco - £34.00
Afternoon Tea with a glass of Tattinger Champagne - £40.00
