An Edinburgh restaurant which has previously been named as one of Scotland’s ‘most beautiful’ has announced the launch of a limited edition afternoon tea experience.

The Spence at Gleneagles Townhouse will begin to serve the new menu exclusively from Monday, January 8 until Tuesday, April 30.

The Herald:

Overseen by head pastry chef, Renato Blinder, the afternoon tea will showcase variations of The Spence's most popular savoury dishes past and present alongside sweets prepared with the best of local produce.

This will range from a wild mushroom cappuccino with cheese straw, spiced pumpkin tart and west coast crab crumpet to a bitter chocolate and apricot gateau, Baileys choux bun and lemon meringue tart.

Also completing the experience will be plain and fruit scones baked in-house and served with Cornish clotted cream and  Glen & Co strawberry and Champagne jam.
