Lowry Hotel Launches Manchester Afternoon Tea

THE River Bar and Restaurant at The Lowry Hotel has launched a new afternoon tea that celebrates all things Manchester.

Alongside traditional finger sandwiches, it features Manchester specialities such as home-baked pies, Eccles cakes, Manchester tart and Vimto jelly.

For every tea sold, the hotel will make a donation to the charity Forever Manchester which aims to improve lives in communities across Greater Manchester.

The Manchester Afternoon Tea is available every day for £22.50 per person.

They also serve a Champagne Afternoon Tea for £33 which includes a full traditional afternoon tea plus a glass of chilled champagne, a prawn cocktail, and strawberries and cream.
