Afternoon tea at Issho

These wonderfully indulgent afternoon tea experiences come with bottomless bubbles.

You can see why afternoon tea is so popular. Tiers of sandwiches, cakes and scones are coupled with a proper pot of tea for a wonderfully decadent in-between meal. But what if you could make it even better? That’s right, we’re talking about bottomless bubbles and you can get them at three Leeds venues. So what are you waiting for? Get your next afternoon tea booked in…

Crafthouse

Afternoon tea at Crafthouse

Crafthouse changes the theme of its afternoon tea every six weeks, but it always comes with free-flowing prosecco for £39 per person. Expect their usual creative flair applied to mini savouries and sweets, with delicious morsels like pea & courgette quiche, Earl Grey & milk chocolate macarons and Pimm’s cup jelly, alongside classic touches like scones with Devon clotted cream and strawberry jam. This is a luxurious feast in an incredibly sophisticated venue, so check it out.

Crafthouse, Trinity Leeds, 70 Boar Lane, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 6HW. £39 per person with free-flow prosecco.

FireLake

Firelake Yorkshire Afternoon Tea

Forget quintessentially British, this afternoon tea is 100% Yorkshire – and it’s exclusive to us. You can devour a delicious selection of petite sandwiches alongside sausages rolls and quiches, but it’s the sweets that really set this in-between meal apart. Fat rascals are smothered with jam and sweet cream, homebred rhubarb cheesecakes are served on a cookie dough base and Yorkshire curd tarts will make you wonder why you’ve never tried the local delicacies. Add a pot of tea, a Yorkshire Sunrise cocktail and unlimited prosecco all for just £28.50.

FireLake, The Light, 13 The Headrow, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 8TL.

Issho

Issho afternoon tea

Issho puts an Asian twist on proceedings, so expect contemporary Japanese food with free-flowing prosecco for just £40 per person. You’ll work your way through edamame beans, Temari sushi balls, sliced sea bass with ponzu and miso braised lamb shoulder pancakes, before moving onto the desserts. Indulge your sweet tooth with caramel purin, chocolate & matcha green tea brownies, Yuzu meringue kisses and mocha ice cream balls. You can even enjoy it in their Sakura Secret Garden on the roof terrace.

Issho, Victoria Gate, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS2 7AU.
