Brand new this summer in the 100 acre Colwick Woods, Byron’s Brasserie proudly introduces Silly Old Bear, the tea for all ages. A fun and playful afternoon tea that features delights inspired by our favourite foodie bear. To begin the established concept, crust free sandwiches, to lemon scones with clotted cream and a honey pot surprise.
The experience is set in our florally decorated Byrons in the leafy setting with outside terrace seating. Guests are encouraged to bring their bear with them and share their stories too whilst instagramming with our in house celebrity Byron Bear. Bouncy Trouncy Savouries hop in as the intermediate course ahead of Sweet Treats. They include a pear and stilton mini croissant and a carrot, orange and ginger soup.
Much anticipated are the Rumbly Tumbly Delights, inevitably the star of our bear show. From a donkey tail blueberry muffin with a raspberry cream, to a frosted lemon drizzle slice, and passionfruit macaroon with stripes, and of course a honeycomb mini cheesecake. These are all served with our Wise Owl’s tea and coffee selection. On this occasion themed teas are sourced, from a watermelon mint and strawberry, to a cold brew tea.
Afternoon tea at Colwick Hall is a special time with many regular visitors having attended our several themed experiences. The Silly Old Bear tea presents drinks for the occasion – with grown ups leisurely sipping a Woodland Blooms cocktail, to juniors slurping a Little Bear’s float.
Much thought and passion has been put into its creation with the sourcing of the finest local honey to tea blends with a difference. Being holiday season, the team have put forward a ‘things to do’ whilst at the Silly Old Bear afternoon tea and these range from a bee farm visit to watching Christopher Robin at the local cinema.
For the more immersive experience, visitors can opt for the Byron Bear Package gift experience to include the themed afternoon tea for two and a luxurious overnight stay at Colwick Hall Hotel!
The Silly Old Bear afternoon tea menu is served from 1st August 2018 through to 30th September 2018. Bookings being taken now and are priced at £23.95 per person for Thursday-Sunday dates and 2 for £30 Monday-Wednesday.
What’s more is that we have teamed up with Broadway cinema, so that you as well as experiencing SiLly Old BEar afternoon tea, you can purchase your tickets to watch the new Christopher Robin film released on 17th August 2018!
