Another treat we had when on Shona's hen weekend was an afternoon tea at Annie's Tea Room in Manchester.
The tea room is owned by Jennie McAlpine, a Coronation Street actress, although she wasn't there when we visited.
Once the staff found out we were celebrating there was balloons and banners placed on the table, which was a nice touch.
There were a few tea to choose from, I had peppermint, with proper leaves and a strainer too!
And of course, we need to upgrade to a champagne afternoon tea, well it would have been rude not to, don't you think?
Sandwiches, warm scones with jame & cream followed by fresh cream cakes. Sadly the plates were not emptied as there was just too much, but we did give it a really good go!
We were offered cake boxes but we were already struggling with suitcases and shopping so we had to decline.
On reflection it is a wee bit pricey - £25.00 for afternoon tea with Champers - having said that we ended up paying £35.00 each as we had extra pop, but for an experience it was worth doing I think :)
