Afternoon Tea at Malmaison Dundee


It feels strange to be talking about my birthday on the blog, what with it being a good few weeks ago now. But with coursework and exams, I have a lot of posts looking for my love in my drafts. Luckily for you, I’m starting to get my mojo back and there’s some good uns coming your way soon. For now, shall we get stuck into some goodness?Gin Cocktails

I didn’t have many plans for my birthday this year, much to everyone’s shock. Everything was a little last minute and spontaneous and you know what? I loved it.

I can’t really complain since that spontaneity meant that Sam, my nana and I found ourselves in Dundee. We mooched around some shops, went to the theatre and found ourselves at Malmaison Dundee for afternoon tea. I’d never been the hotel before and it’s been far too long since I had afternoon tea but since our visit, I’ve found myself recommending it to everyone who asked about it! Salmon Wraps

Polenta Cake

Mini Burgers

You see, this was an afternoon tea with a bit of a difference. Alongside the usual suspects of scones and cake, there were a few upgrades. Finger sandwiches were replaced with tasty wraps and mini burgers, all of which were packed with flavour and had us gushing compliments.


Among the sweeter offerings were meringues, milkshakes, brownies, polenta cake and  some kind of rhubarb mousse/ fool (I forgot to ask what it was called but it was good!). If I had to pick, I would say my favourite was the brownies but it’s certainly a challenging competition.

Just look at the spread in all its glory! Afternoon Tea

While £25 is quite expensive, we got a lot of food for our money and drinks. Alongside our tea, Sam and I were drinking champagne (how fancy!) while Nana had a gin cocktail that I think she was a big fan of. There are a couple of other options if that’s a little outside of your budget, but if you’re looking to celebrate, I would definitely recommend the afternoon tea. If you want to find out a little more about it, you can so so here.

Before I go, I want to take a moment to thank the staff that served us. Nothing was too much trouble and they were so helpful and friendly that it truly made the experience something special. Tea

Now I guess I just need to find another excuse to visit again, right?
