London’s Ritz Hotel may be famous for its Afternoon Tea, but it has competition from Derry’s Everglades Hotel which serves up its own scrumptious Afternoon Tea experience. You can enjoy Afternoon Tea at the Everglades every day and it’s served in the cosy atmosphere of the hotel lounge with background piano playing making the treat even more special.

Beautifully presented, the mouth-watering Afternoon Tea selection includes a range of delicious bite sized sandwiches - home-baked ham and wholegrain mustard, smoked salmon and cucumber, egg and cress and roast turkey and cranberry - warm, freshly made scones and breads and speciality traybakes.

Fresh cream and tasty jam accompany the scones and the breads include home-baked banana bread and fruit loaf.

Those with a sweet tooth are spoilt for choice when it comes to the pastries and traybakes. There are mini fresh cream profiteroles, vanilla cheesecake, fifteens, shortbread and an assortment of chocolate traybakes

The tea and coffee selection is just as good. You can choose from a wonderful blend of Assam and Kenya’s finest teas, an extensive range of speciality, fruit and herbal teas or coffee which is a specially selected combination of Arabica beans, sourced and roasted by Bewley’s.

A serving of an Irish liqueur and chocolate cream is included with the Afternoon Tea and you can also add a sparkle to your afternoon with some Italian Prosecco or a cocktail from the hotel’s extensive cocktail menu, both at a nominal extra charge.

There’s so much to eat and drink it’s advisable to give yourself a couple of hours to relax and enjoy the whole experience. The service is excellent with the hotel’s very attentive staff on hand to provide additional pots of tea on request, and, when you decide you simply can’t eat or drink any more, they even provide dainty little cardboard boxes so you can take leftovers home with you.

Afternoon Tea is served every day at the Everglades Hotel on Monday to Saturday from 12.30pm to 4.30pm and on Sundays from 2.30pm-4.30pm. Gluten free Afternoon Tea is also available on request, with 24 hours notice.

Priced at £15 per person or £22 if you add the Prosecco, it’s excellent value for money. It’s a marvellous treat for any special occasion - birthday, anniversary, girlie get-together or summer day out - but you don’t need an excuse to enjoy the delightful culinary experience that is Afternoon Tea at the Everglades.
