Marco Pierre’s ace of an afternoon tea

To coincide with the start of the world’s most famous tennis tournament, Birmingham’s Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill is serving up a brand new afternoon tea, with all the sophistication you’d associate with Wimbledon.

Trademark strawberries and cream sit proudly on top of the cake stand, spread lavishly across fresh baked scones; while other picnic classics such as a summer trifle, lemon drizzle cake and baked cheese, tomato and onion quiche sit alongside.

With a set of fresh sandwiches to match, including smoked salmon with cream cheese, and chicken and chorizo, Marco’s afternoon tea is best enjoyed from the sun terrace, with views even better than Henman Hill.

Perfectly complementing the cakes and sandwiches, there are ten different flavours of Teapigs tea, ranging from Earl Grey to Mao Feng green; and for those looking to fully embrace the spirit of SW19, prosecco and champagne is also available.

All afternoon tea packages come as traditional, vegetarian and gluten-free, and are available now. To book, please visit
