Award-winning Manchester restaurant launches national at-home Father’s Day Afternoon Tea, as demand for at-home dining continues to grow in UK

The 5-star, iconic Lowry Hotel’s River Restaurant has launched an at-home Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea, to indulge in the garden with your nearest and dearest this Father’s Day.

Despite dining restrictions lifting in the UK, The River Restaurant has seen increasing demand for at-home dining with people opting to stay at home and enjoy afternoon tea with friends.

So much so, the restaurant now offers nationwide delivery to keep up with demand.

Fathers can enjoy a brand-new afternoon tea with a twist which requires minimal cooking and provides indulgent, tasty bites alongside beer – the perfect combination on a relaxed Sunday afternoon.

The menu which has been curated by award-winning Head Chef, Dave Ashton and includes a range of savoury delights such as prime beef burger topped with BBQ pulled pork and glazed stilton, mini chicken and bacon pie and succulent beef sandwiches finished with chunky coleslaw.

No afternoon tea experience is complete without scones, and the luxurious Three Cheese and Pancetta Scones will not disappoint. Accompanied by smoky bacon jam and chive sour cream, this twist on a classic pastry will offer the finest flavours.

To hit the sweet spot, the @ HOME menu also offers a delicious Jack Daniels trifle and a rich dark chocolate and salted caramel Choux Bun – the ultimate dessert experience.

While prosecco may be the usual signature afternoon tipple, this Father’s Day Afternoon Tea @ HOME offers two bottles of Birra Moretti to be enjoyed with the special gentleman in your life.

Dave Ashton, Executive Chef at The Lowry Hotel said: “Despite restrictions lifting in the UK, not everyone is comfortable dining out yet and people are still choosing to enjoy restaurant quality food from the comfort of home through delivery services.

“No father should miss out this year, so we have created a delicious afternoon tea with a gentleman’s twist which can be enjoyed on a sunny Sunday afternoon in the garden with family.

“Rather than dainty sandwiches and Prosecco, we have included menu items such as beef burgers and savoury scones, which do require a little bit of prep work, but create the ultimate restaurant experience to be enjoyed at home.

Father’s Day Afternoon Tea @ HOME is priced at £49 for two people and is available for delivery nationwide on Friday 18th June, or alternatively can be collected from The Lowry Hotel on Sunday 20th June between 10am-2pm.

The @ HOME service which launched in September 2020 in response of the Covid pandemic has seen widespread demand from customers across the UK, despite covid restrictions being lifted. To order The Lowry Hotel’s Father’s Day Afternoon Tea @ HOME, please visit The Lowry Hotel website.
