Afternoon Tea: Lion Quays Hotel – Gobowen, Oswestry

This bank holiday weekend, we headed up North to Chester, as I, Jessica, work Saturday’s, it’s been harder to go to to visit James’ family for the weekend, so we decided to take advantage of the long weekend and take the time to be with his family.

During our stay, it coincidentally fit in with our anniversary of the day we met near to Chester in Oswestry, so on Monday 27th August, James booked us a treat to Afternoon Tea in the same hotel we met in 4 years ago.

The thing with having Afternoon Tea is that when is arrives, you never think it’ll fill you up but boy that’s how you know my eyes are bigger than my stomach because I always have the same thought but each time, I fall into a food coma or missing something out (and taking it away)

We had a classic Afternoon Tea starting with the sandwiches: egg and mayo, ham and chutney, salmon and cucumber, and cheese, followed by the biggest scone we’ve ever had, along with clotted cream, garnished with strawberries and a choice of strawberry and raspberry jam, and last but definitely not least, a selection of 4 mini desserts – all with such richness!

The weather may not have been the best, but it was a beautiful day reminiscing on the first time we met, appreciating what we have now and discussing our future plans.

    I've never been for afternoon tea, ever! I really want to though cause it looks exactly my kind of treat. This is one of the prettiest I've seen in terms of the presentation of the food. It's a shame the weather wasn't great but the food looks lovely!Beth x Adventure & Anxiety

    How sweet to revisit an old place that's so close to your heart! I absolutely agree about afternoon teas being deceptively filling – I've never failed to feel stuffed after indulging in one! Your afternoon tea here looks excellently presented, I love the wooden board! The selection of mini mergines looks very tasty! Shame about the weather, you'll just have to head back when it's sunny!Abbey xxxx
