The Afternoon Tea Club Reviews: Marco's New York Italian, Sheffield, Pt. 2

Traditional Afternoon tea

A few weeks ago, we brought you part one of our Marco's Italian afternoon tea weekend, complete with rustic bruchetta and chocolate dip biscotti. Well, this week we're pleased to bring you the restaurant's traditional afternoon tea.

Sweet Treats
A lot more conventional than it's Italian counterpart, the classic afternoon tea features everything you could wish for, including champagne to start, an abundance of finger sandwiches (Beef and Horseradish, Salmon and cream cheese, Ham & Mustard, Mackerel and Beetroot, Cream cheese and cucumbera selection of sweet treats and cakes (Fruit Tarts, filled Brandy Snaps, Lemon Curd Sponge, Chocolate Cake, Dipped Strawberries) and a surprise strawberry treat to finish. Scones also make a reappearance on this menu, making this tea absolutely perfect for the afternoon tea traditionalist in us all.

Strawberry Surprise
As before the service was very friendly, with the manageress being more than happy to explain the details of the menu to us and make sure that we were well looked after.

All in all our trip to Marco's New York Italian was an absolute delight. It's not often that you see themed afternoon teas outside of London, so the range on offer here is a definite bonus. If you're in the area and after something sweet, give them a try!

Tip: If you like a quieter environment, book a sitting for after 3.30 as it was a lot quieter than earlier on.
