Festive Afternoon Tea At The White Lodge Hotel, Filey.
White Lodge’s festive afternoon tea consisted of:
- A selection of sandwiches – Roast Turkey and Cranberry, Egg Mayonnaise and Cress, Roast Ham and Grain Mustard Mayonnaise.
- Christmas cake served with Wensleydale cheese
- Sweet treats – A homemade mince pie, chocolate truffle, and a peanut cup.
Sandwiches all came perfectly made in soldier form and were extremely yummy. The roast ham was by far my favourite due to it being ‘real’ ham, rather than the wafer rubbish you can sometimes get.
Where normally would sit a warm homemade scone, instead hosted a generous slice of Christmas Cake, accompanied by some Wensleydale cheese.
Controversial comment: Christmas cake just isn’t my thing. This isn’t a reflection purely on White Lodge’s cake, as it was eaten and enjoyed, especially with the cheese, which very much pleased the palette. It’s just not a cake of choice.
The top tier was my favourite tier of them all. The sweet treats.
I was slightly unimpressed with the offerings. I couldn’t help but feel a bit sad that not only was the mince pie not full size but also that it looked like not much thought had gone into the treats themselves. The point of offering mini treats is surely so that there’s a better selection? I would have said that there definitely could have been at least two more treats offered.
White Lodge’s festive afternoon tea is priced at £12.50pp. Which can be served with freshly brewed House Of Blend Tea or Mocha Java Coffee. Though if you’re feeling something a bit stronger or more festive, you have the choice to upgrade to a glass of Prosecco or Mulled wine for an extra £5.
