Having been to Bistro Franc for allll the food and wine in recent months, i was more than ready when they announced they’d be running a French style afternoon tea (including prosecco) in their restaurant and with bank holiday Monday coming up, i couldn’t think of a better time to classily combine carbs and alcohol. And it didn’t disappoint.
With coffee and tea served in the cutest tea pots and the option to upgrade to prosecco (which we did, of course) Bistro Franc’s afternoon tea really set the scene for an afternoon lunch. The main event was served on a gorgeous slate cake stand with savouries and pastries on the bottom and decadent desserts on the top.
The sandwich selection was delish and a little different from your traditional flavours with toasted wraps full of cheese, roasted chicken and the veggie option packed full of roasted veggies and humous. On the same tier was a selection of continental french delights including mini croissants and cinnamon whirls accompanied by a huge dish of cream cheese frosting which i assume was for spreading but i lived my best life by dunking my croissant straight in (obviously).
For dessert, we were treated to delicious, homemade mini creme brulees, rich strawberry mousse and the creamiest slice of white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake, which finished off our delightful lunch in the best way possible.
If you’ve been to bistro franc for lunch or an evening meal (and loved it as much as me) you should definitely pop in for a spot of afternoon tea, or apres midi as the French would say. It’s perfect for a special occasion, birthday tea or even just cos! Book in now and bon appetit!
