Tea House on the Loch (Gartcosh, Glasgow) 2022 : Review

The Visit

I love finding new places to drive to and I accidentally came across here when I was looking on Apple Maps…I am glad I found it!

This wee tea house is only a 20 min drive from where I stay and I took a wee drive today to check it out.

The Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea £9.50 per person
from 10am until 4pm

Mature cheddar cheese with pickle, tuna mayonnaise with red onion or honey roast ham with mature cheddar cheese. accompanied by tea or coffee and bite sized cakes with scone with clotted cream and jam.

On arrival this looked very nice, presentation different to what I have had at other places but it still looked very very nice.

I opted for the Cheese and pickles today and this was very nice. The bread was nice and thick and fluffy and the cheese and pickles very fresh.

The cakes were very nice and I enjoyed them with my coffee looking out at the lovely view.

This is the first thing that will hit you when you arrive here the view, and in the summer I am sure the view is amazing! today it was very nice, a little cloudy but still a lovely atmosphere, afternoon tea and view.

Visit Overall

I would call ahead and book as this place is very very popular, and I was lucky they had a free table.

I really enjoyed today’s visit and also the afternoon tea, I will pop back and check it out in the summer.

Afternoon Tea at Mar Hall Hotel, Golf & Spa Resort 2021: Review

The Visit

Today my parents and I were taking a wee visit here to get some Afternoon tea and to see the sights in the area.

The Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea in the Grand Hall consists of a mouth-watering array of delicate pastries, homemade cakes and scones with clotted cream and strawberry preserve. Diners can indulge in some luxurious champagne and choose from a wide range of distinct blends of tea, imported by specialist tea suppliers from around the world.

The afternoon tea costs £29.00 per person or Moet Champagne Afternoon Tea £40.00pp

Presentation on arrival was very nice, and looked really good to. The afternoon tea also comes with tea or coffee, and its a very nice coffee if I say so 🙂

Everything today was very fresh, the sandwiches were very nice we got : Cheese savoury, ham and mustard, egg mayonnaise and salmon.

The scones we requested plan scones, and they delivered which some places only look at but still send out anything.

Mar Hall score an extra bonus point with me as the scones came with clotted cream, which is the way scones cream and jam should always be served!!

Overall :

Today we had a lovely relaxing and very tasty time at Mar Hal.

I really enjoyed today and the afternoon tea, I would add here to my top 5 afternoon tea places.

Hettie’s Tearoom Afternoon Tea (Pitlochry, Scotland) 2021 : Review

The Visit

Todays wee drive was to Pitlochry and to see the sights, but I had also booked Hetties for Afternoon Tea as the photos I had seen on Google looked really good.

The Afternoon Tea

By memory this was about £22 per person

Once ordered they ask what two types of sandwiches you would like and today I opted for:

  • Coronation Chicken
  • Tuna and cheese

You are first presented with this sandwich platter, sausage rolls and quiche.

The sandwiches were very fresh and very tasty, but for me the quiche and sausage rolls were the winners. The flavours of both were really really good, and I look forward to having them again when I next visit.

Next is the massive selection of cakes, and a side plate of scones with cream and jam.

At first I was thinking hmm just one scone each, but due to all the cakes I understand why….you need the space 🙂

The scones were very nice, and worked well with the cream and jam.

The massive amount of cakes was very good, and everything was very fresh and very tasty.

Overall :

Firstly WOW for value for money is really good, I would happily recommend here for a place to come for afternoon tea.

The tea room is very clean and the staff are very attentive and friendly.

I am adding here to my top spots page.
