Afternoon tea was established after people found afternoon pea too healthy, afternoon brie too unhealthy, and afternoon mulberry tree lacking in the trisyllabic cadence of its forerunners. Enjoy a healthy, happy medium with today's Groupon at The Bull Hotel. Choose from the following options:
• £12 afternoon tea with champagne for two (£30 value)
• £22 afternoon tea with champagne for four (£60 value)
With a quartet of stars from the AA, The Bull Hotel is a twinkling 17th Century Coach & Inn in the centre of Peterborough. With conference and function rooms, and proximity to the railway station, conference-goers and train spotters alike can make the most of the hotel's facilities - an ideal place to rest their heads, rustle their papers, and enjoy a business beverage at the bar. As well as welcoming wanderers from far away, the hotel's dining facilities are open to all, with Sunday lunches and afternoon teas sitting alongside the conventional trice-daily repasts.
Peckish patrons can quell their afternoon appetites with a traditional inter-meal treat. The tea will include a selection on meats and sweets buried between doughy slices, fruity cakes and bakes, and scones flanked by their traditional, trusty old sidekicks. With a warm cup of something to keep pinkie fingers poised, and a glass of champagne to relax them again, customers will have a warm and bubbly experience.
Bull Hotel is not widely reviewed for its afternoon tea services, however visitors on TripAdvisor made special mention of the hotel’s friendly and attentive services as a highlight of their stay.
But I think what really makes The Bull unique are it's staff. We were greeted with a smile by every member of staff we encountered during our stay. They are a happy lot. They are relaxed and friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble. They don't over crowd you with the formal, over bearing, in your face service you often get in other places that I find distinctly un-relaxing. Instead they let you be, are happy for you to curl your feet up on the sofa in front of the open fires reading a newspaper in peace.
