Silly old Bear Afternoon Tea at Byron’s Brasserie, Colwick Hall Hotel

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.

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 the 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 the 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.

The experience is set in the florally decorated Byrons with outside terrace seating. Guests are encouraged to take their bear with them and share their stories too whilst instagramming with in-house celebrity Byron Bear.

Afternoon tea at Colwick Hall is a special time with many regular visitors having attended their many themed experiences. The Silly Old Bear tea presents drinks for the occasion – with grown ups able to leisurely sip a Woodland Blooms cocktail while the juniors enjoy 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!
