Afternoon tea delivered in and around Newcastle - Mrs Dellow's Delights Review

 *This is a collaborative post

My mam works insane hours as a senior carer - I'm talking back to back 14-hour shifts (I don't know how she does it) and my brother has recently opened his own business (shout out to Evan's Bistro in Whitley Bay). This coupled with my crazy blogging life means that we haven't been able to spend much time together recently so when Mrs Dellow's asked if I'd like to taste test their new autumn menu, I thought it would be the perfect excuse for us to get together for a few hours. Mrs Dellow's Delights deliver and set up everything you need for afternoon tea in your own home or venue so it's the perfect option for those who have kids who won't sit for 2 hours in a restaurant or those who are simply more comfortable in their own home.


The new autumn menu features so much comfort food and I won't lie when I say there were plenty of leftovers for us to enjoy for lunch the next day too. The portions are huge and everything has that special homemade taste.


The beauty of afternoon tea by Mrs Dellow's is that they provide everything. From tablecloths to cake stands, vintage tea plates, cups and saucers, two types of coffee, tea, tea strainers, jam spoons, cake forks, hot chocolate, marshmallows, a cafetiere.....even the milk is provided and it's all set out for you too. Mrs Dellow will get in touch with you a couple of days before your booking to confirm the size of your table and cake preferences.


First up - check out these buttermilk scones. Served with Damson Jam and clotted cream they are simply perfect.




The cakes are huge. It's really difficult to choose a favourite but I think for autumn the caramel apple and pecan just edged it. I could actually only manage one slice of cake and the kids shared the leftover chocolate cake between them. They couldn't get enough!







There's a huge batch of sandwiches to wade your way through too. These are the complete opposite to a sandwich you'd pick up from the supermarket for lunch and the Gammon and Plum Chutney sandwiches really put me in the mood for Christmas. There's nothing like a proper ham sandwich.




Afternoon tea is such a lovely way to relax and have a proper chat with your lovely people. I really cannot recommend Mrs Dellow's Delights enough. The best part is, once you're done, the team will pop back and clear everything away for you. Perfect!

I'd recommend organising an afternoon tea party to anyone who is looking to get together with friends or family this autumn. It's a fab idea if you have kids as they can play upstairs whilst you take your time and there's no stress about trying to occupy them in a restaurant. Mrs Dellow's Delights can be booked for informal gatherings, parties, baby showers, christenings, birthdays, engagements.....anything goes really. If you're at home you can always add your own bottle of Champagne to the celebrations too.





The autumn afternoon tea from Mrs Dellow's Delights is available from £15.95 pp. Visit their Facebook page for more photos and www.mrsdellow.com to find out more and book. There's no job too big!

  5. This looks lush, I love afternoon tea but I rarely go as finding childcare is so hard and I wouldn't take my little two. I think I need to show Lee this for ideas for my birthday in a few weeks x
