Step into spring with splendid Easter-themed high teas at this beautiful Manchester boutique hotel

Great John Street Hotel has reinvented its afternoon teas for the sweet season with three refreshed offerings for ladies, gents and the little ones.

It’s one of the most luxurious spots in town and if you catch that Easter sun right you can even soak up some rays on the fabulous terrace as you enjoy this great British tradition.

If you feel like keeping it traditional with a little Easter twist, opt for the Easter Afternoon Tea (available with or without champers) and tuck into a brand new spread full of fresh and seasonal flavours.

Stacked high with egg mayonnaise and cress open sliders, smoked salmon mini bagels, delicate finger sandwiches filled with Lancashire cheese and tomato chutney, chicken and chive mayo and cucumber and crème fraiche, this option keeps it light with a little something for everyone.

Sweet tooths can relax, too, as the Easter tea comes with a lingering sweet treat at the end of lemon macaroons, chocolate mousse nests, carrot cake, marble chocolate tart, scones, preserves and clotted cream. Starting at £24.50 without fizz, you certainly get a lot of delicious for your money here.

If you’re after something a little heartier, they have a fantastic Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea option available from just £25 featuring mini beef burgers, veggie spring rolls, chicken and leek pie, scotch egg and piccalilli, cheese board and chutneys plus Eccles cakes for that classic local touch.

Last but not least, if you’ve got the little ones in tow this Easter then there’s something special on offer for them, too. Keep those little hands busy with decorate-them-yourself cupcakes, plus lolly pop banana brownies, bonnet biscuits and fruit kebabs.

So whether you’re getting together with the boys for a hearty gentleman’s tea or keeping it classy with your girl squad after an afternoon of hitting the shops, make sure to book in for some indulgent sweet treats.
