Manchester’s five-star hotel The Lowry is hosting a bottomless afternoon tea this Mother’s Day – complete with unlimited cakes, sandwiches, desserts, scones and live entertainment.

Its decadent afternoon tea served in the River Restaurant will get a Mother’s Day upgrade, moving into The Grand Ballroom for the day where guests will find tables stacked high with sweet treats and savoury delicacies.

Live music will be performed by an in-house pianist throughout the day, and for children there will be live entertainment in the form of a magician who’ll be on hand to wow them with his various tricks.

The bottomless afternoon tea will be available in two-hour slots, with a huge range of sweet and sacoury delicacies on offer. Guests will be able to help themselves as they please during that time.

From the sweet treats menu, think lemon and ginger choux craqualin, raspberry and white chocolate and pistachio gateaux, praline tart with milk chocolate and Lowry honey (fresh from the Manchester Bee Centre) and passion fruit cheesecake with a rainbow selection of coloured flavoured Macaroons.


As for the savoury selection, there’ll be heaps of Lincolnshire pork and wild mushroom sausage rolls alongside a variety of delicate tea sandwiches, such as poached Loch Duart salmon with horseradish crème fraiche, baked ham with piccalilli and oak-smoked cheese with carrot and spring onion.

Scones will also be piled high, with both fruit and plain choices available, all served with endless Cornish clotted creme and fine strawberry preserve.
