Afternoon Tea is the perfect weekend treat, and the iconic Spanish City in Whitley Bay has two delicious offerings to choose from. A Gentleman's Afternoon Tea is available for Father's Day weekend only, or a Traditional Afternoon Tea. Everything in their Afternoon Teas is handmade on the premises by their Head Pastry Chef.
They use high-quality, fresh ingredients and they guarantee you'll be able to taste the difference. They do have limited slots available so make sure you book your collection for this weekend. You can call 07415 429 998 to place your order. Lines are open Wed-Sat, 11am - 7pm and Sun 11am - 4pm. You can view the menus on their Facebook page too, but we think this one will sell out quickly, so get your weekend treat booked in ASAP.
