Popular hotel Malmaison, based inside the Birmingham’s iconic Mailbox is certainly the place to be for an Afternoon Tea to remember. Treat a soon-to-be Bride, your beloved Mother or dear friend to this journey of delights that’s just a small step away from tradition.
Classic Cream Tea at a price of £12 offers a selection of scones with clotted cream & strawberry jam, Bakewell tart and salted caramel brownies with a choice of tasty teas. However, we recommend going big with their full Afternoon Tea for just £19.95. We promise a flurry of surprises await.
