Taking inspiration from beautiful wildflower meadows and butterflies, we are bringing a touch of countryside charm to the Scottish capital this summer, with a limited-edition Butterfly Afternoon Tea, available everyday from 3pm to 5pm until Sunday, 1 September. The special afternoon tea will feature an array of both sweet and savoury treats, including truffled chicken brioche roll, marinated cucumber and dill sandwiches, warm fruited scones with Dorset clotted cream and chocolate salted caramel mousse. Completing the afternoon tea will be an indulgent chocolate pot topped with colourful chocolate butterflies.
Guests can enjoy the Butterfly Afternoon Tea in the stylish surroundings of the St Andrew Square restaurant, or on a sunny day, can sit outside and soak up the rays on the terrace. This summer, the terrace will feature a beautiful installation incorporating Scottish wildflowers, thistles, heathers and butterflies, as well as colourful blooms, orange poppies and grasses.
Priced at £18.95, the Butterfly Afternoon Tea will be available throughout the summer season, daily from 3pm to 5pm. Guests can also opt for the Champagne Butterfly Afternoon Tea for £26.50.
In celebration of Afternoon Tea week, we have partnered with Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh to offer you four tickets to the Glasshouses and afternoon tea with us.
The winner will be picked at random on Friday, 23 August and will be contacted directly.
