Our Afternoon Tea choices
Afternoon tea at King Street Townhouse is a memorable Manchester experience. Our Traditional Afternoon Tea menu centres around timeless British flavours of the season and serves up generously sized portions. From savoury sandwiches to fresh scones (accompanied by Cornish clotted cream and strawberry preserve, of course), the real stars of the show are our exquisite pastries and cakes that almost look too good to eat. Upgrade your afternoon tea with a glass of champagne, Laurent-Perrier, Brut.VIEW MENU
The High Afternoon Tea is King Street Townhouse’s alternative option for those with a more savoury tooth - think Orzo Fritters, Cheddar Croquettes and Lamb Belly Fritter with Mint Gel. Still served in our dedicated Lounge, alongside our extensive tea selection, expect cheese and chutney instead of scones and cream.VIEW MENU
