Berts, the 1930’s Art Deco inspired jazz club at the Merchant Hotel have recently introduced Berts Savoury Afternoon Tea. In a unique twist to the traditional afternoon tea in the Great Room next door, this Savoury creation will satisfy the needs of those of you who don’t have a sweet tooth. Although if you have a sweet craving, you do get a selection of Petit Fours to finish the experience. Overall, this is a very welcome addition to the Afternoon Tea offering in Northern Ireland.
As with everything the Merchant Hotel offers, it’s all at an impeccable 5 star standard. And of course you arrive expecting 5 star everything, and it never fails to let you down.
What did we love about it?
- Berts is a beautiful Art Deco style bar and restaurant right at the heart of the Cathedral Quarter in the Merchant Hotel. It’s an elegant and glamorous place to spend a weekend relaxing and enjoying afternoon tea with a difference.
- The beetroot and goats cheese macaron – two ingredients I love and together in the shape of a macaron, wow. The top Savoury Afternoon Tea treat for me!
- Croque Madame Muffin – A close second. You can’t beat Croque Madame anyway, but when it’s recreated as a muffin, genius! And totally awesome.
- It’s not completely savoury though, the afternoon tea was completed with a few scrumptious Petit Fours.
- You can choose either Prosecco or a selection of Teas. We chose Prosecco of course.
- Savoury Afternoon Tea is available every Saturday afternoon 12-3.30, and Sunday afternoon 12.30-4.30
- At £25 per person this is a big treat afternoon tea, but it’s worth it, you’re worth it.
Huge thanks to Berts for inviting us along to try out their unique Savoury Afternoon Tea. It’s definitely an experience we’d recommend and will be adding it to our ever popular blog about Afternoon Tea in Northern Ireland.
