The Best Afternoon Tea in Llandudno
Afternoon Tea is something rather special, and something which unfortunately, can be hit or miss. When it comes to enjoying the perfect Afternoon Tea in Llandudno, it always helps to be assured of quality. There are a number of restaurants in Llandudno with a variety of pricing options, but we’re absolutely certain (through extensive and very tasty testing!) we’ve found the very best Afternoon Tea in Llandudno, in terms of choice, value, and quality.
The St Tudno Hotel has a little secret, and something that we weren’t aware of for the longest time. This pretty and historic hotel in Llandudno on the North Parade has it’s very own restaurant, which has been granted Michelin attention. The Terrace at St Tudno is a very unique and very individual little place, providing perfect ambience as well as all manner of features that you simply won’t see anywhere else. The walls of the restaurant are adorned with murals of Lake Como, and fresh flowers are intricately weaved into the grand chandelier of the dining area, providing a beautifully scented feature which is absolutely gorgeous visually.
Should the sun be shining, you’re also more than welcome to take your afternoon tea on the Terrace itself – an intricately tiled and very cosy little area outside the St Tudno Hotel, set at an elevation, where you can enjoy gorgeous panoramic views of the Llandudno Bay and watch the world go by. That’s what Afternoon Tea is all about, isn’t it? It certainly isn’t something that should be rushed, and the Terrace at St Tudno certainly has the features to provide absolutely wonderful dining, whether it is a light bite or a full meal.
The selections of Afternoon Tea at the Terrace in Llandudno are wonderful, as well. Should you be short on time you’re more than welcome to enjoy the Mini Afternoon Tea at the Terrace Restaurant in Llandudno for a modest £6.95. While the pricing is miniscule, you’ll find yourself well provided for. It includes a traditional and very buttery Welsh bara brith, as well as a lemon Madiera cake, which is served alongside a choice of scones, served with whipped cream and of course the Terraces’ own whipped cream and preserve alongside Taylors of Harrogate (the best!) tea and fair trade coffee. It’s perfect should you require a little pick me up.
Should you require something a touch more substantial, the Terrace can offer you all of the above, plus a selection of cut finger sandwiches which are served on either white or brown bread (your choice, of course!) with all manner of locally sourced produce. Meat options for the sandwiches include roast chicken or ham from their supplier in nearby Conwy, or poached or smoked salmon which is locally sourced, as well. That, combined with a fresh selection of their assorted cakes baked that very day we’re sure will hit the spot, and you won’t believe the price at only £11.95.
Should you wish for a little extravagance with your Afternoon Tea in Llandudno (and why not!) there is also the offering of the above, complete with a glass of house Prosecco, as well as fresh strawberries and St Tudno’s very own freshly made ice cream for only £19.95.
