I was the lucky winner of the Mercure Manchester Piccadilly’s competition for my friend Linda and I to enjoy afternoon tea with a view. What a lovely experience we had! The tea room looks out over Manchester Piccadilly Gardens, so you can watch the world go by as you sip your Earl Grey!
The menu was all Manchester themed and every bit of it was delicious. We had coronation (street) chicken wraps, Cheshire cheese with Boddington’s chutney, Bury black pudding scotch eggs (my favourite!), Manchester tart (remember that from school?), Jaffa cakes, Vimto trifle and scones with clotted cream. To say we were spoilt is an understatement.
We trekked around Manchester’s shops all afternoon to burn off the calories.
If you’re having a shopping trip to Manchester, this is well worth a visit!
