Afternoon Tea at Marco Pierre White, Cardiff


Indigo Hotel, Cardiff


I have to say I do love a spot of Afternoon tea as it's such a British quintessential past time and even though we do have an equivalent in South Africa, aptly named High Tea, I love to indulge in this traditional British afternoon delight, I mean let's get honest who doesn't love cake? So when the recently opened Indigo Hotel in Cardiff got in touch to see if we would like to try out their version of this classic treat at their in-house Marco Pierre White Restaurant of course we jumped at the opportunity. 

The Restaurant and Bar is located on the top floor of the hotel in the Dominion's Arcade building just off the high street and offers a rare rooftop terrace with views right across central Cardiff. The interior is stylish but laidback and has lots of natural light flooding and is a great place for date lunch or a quiet refuge from the busy streets below.

As we sat down and waited for our tea to arrive we toasted over a glass of prosecco savoring this rare child-free moment, I feel it's really important to have some adult time every now and then, as well as being able to eat without a toddler climbing all over me. The afternoon tea was perfect for two people and it always works well for John and I as I have all the vegetarian sandwiches such as the cucumber and cream cheese and egg cress mayo while he finished off the rare roast beef with horseradish and ham and mustard.

After the savouries we tucked into the huge scones with cream and fresh whole strawberries alongside some very cute macaroons. To top it off there was a selection of some seriously indulgent bite-sized cakes including Sachertorte, Cheesecake and Carrot Cake, needless to say we were full to the bring and in fact I couldn't finish all of mine.

We really enjoyed our relaxing and indulgent afternoon at the Indigo hotel in Cardiff and if you're looking for somewhere a special or just a retreat from the city than I recommend popping in even if it's just for some cheeky cocktails on the rooftop terrace. It's certainly become an instant favorite with us and somewhat of a gem in the city.

We were kindly invited to a complimentary afternoon tea for our honest opinion.
