You may or may not have known, but this past week has been Afternoon Tea Week in the UK! And if you know me, you’ll know that I absolutely love going for afternoon tea, especially if there is some sort of theme or quirkiness to it. That being said, I thought I’d write about one of my favourite afternoon tea places which is Burger & Bubbles for their Tipsy Tea Party!
What is it?
Tipsy Tea at Burger and Bubbles is a classic afternoon tea with a twist… Instead of sandwiches, you get sliders and instead of tea, you get prosecco and cocktails!
What do you get?
When you arrive, you get the choice of three different packages, the first one is sliders and scones with free-flowing tea, coffee, and juice which costs £24.95, the second is sliders and scones with free-flowing prosecco which costs £34.95, and the third is sliders and scones with free-flowing teapot cocktails or draught beer which costs £39.95. I always go for the free-flowing teapot cocktails, because they are fun and tasty! They do four different cocktails, including; Mojitos, Pornstar Martinis, Earl Grey Ice Tea, and Bellinis, however, I always go for the Pornstar Martini, because it is my absolute favourite. Food-wise, you get a glass of popcorn when you sit down, and then for the actual tipsy tea, each person gets one mini cheeseburger, one mini buttermilk chicken slider, one mini pulled pork slider, two warm scones served with fresh clotted cream and strawberry jam and a selection of fresh cakes, macaroons, and petite treats. You can also order a side of chips if you are feeling extra peckish. They also cater their tipsy tea for vegetarians with halloumi and portobello mushroom burgers, and also offer gluten & dairy-free options – So tipsy tea for everyone!
What is the atmosphere like?
There is a great atmosphere in Burger and Bubbles, the upbeat music playing in the background will put you in a good mood, and the staff are very friendly, and never let your glass go empty which makes the experience great. It’s also a great place for Instagram photos – which I always take full advantage of!
When can you go?
Tipsy Tea is available every day in three different sittings. You can do at either 12 pm, 2:30 pm or 5 pm, and get 100 minutes at your table which includes 90 minutes of drinking time.
Where is it?
The address for Burger and Bubbles is; 1- 4 Southend Rd, Beckenham BR3 1SD. It is right outside Beckenham Junction Station, which is extremely handy if you are drinking and don’t want to drive back home after – and it also means you don’t have to walk far or pay for a uber to the station.
How can you book?
You can book through their website here!
