ANOTHER WAY TO ENJOY AFTERNOON TEA
~ Launch of our call and collect ‘Pure Cork Afternoon Tea’ ~
~ This special treat is perfect for cocooning loved ones and will support local producers and charity Our Hospital Heroes ~
Does lockdown have you pining for dainty finger sandwiches, fluffy scones and mouth-watering desserts? If you have a special occasion coming up, want to treat cocooning loved ones, or host a small socially distanced garden gathering when restrictions are eased, fear not, as Cork’s we have put Afternoon Tea back on the menu with the launch of a new call and collect service - available from Saturday 16th May! Orders will be taken from Friday 14th May.
As you may know we are temporarily closed to guests in line with Covid-19 restrictions, we devised the ‘Pure Cork Afternoon Tea’ concept to help get some of our staff back to work, support our local suppliers and reconnect with customers in a safe and responsible manner.
Not only that, but €5 from every purchase will be donated to Our Hospital Heroes, so your treat will go a long way.
It will feel just like the real thing as the Pure Cork Afternoon Tea Menu will be placed on a three-tiered carryout box. Priced at €55 and designed to lavishly treat two people, it will feature savoury treats including a Heirloom Tomato & Toonsbridge Mozzarella Ciabatta, Ballyhoura Apple & Clonakilty Black Pudding Bruschetta, Skeaghanore Duck & Onion Marmalade on Brioche, a Prawn Marie Rose in Lettuce Cup and a Bandon Vale Cheese, Baked Ham & Ballymaloe Relish Finger. The middle tier will consist of Berthas Revenge Sloe Gin Scones and Fruit Hill Farm Carrot & Pineapple Cake. And the final tier is an elegant desert selection featuring Midleton Very Rare Whiskey Fudge, Kinsale Red Berry Mead Panna Cotta, The Montenotte Rice Crispy Square, Killahora Pear & Milk Chocolate Tart and Beamish & White Chocolate Mousse.
The Pure Cork Call and Collect Afternoon Tea will be available Thursday to Sunday with 3 daily collection slots from 12:30-13.00, 13.00-13.30, 13.30-14.00. To avail of this sumptuous afternoon feast simply call the hotel, pay by card, book your pickup slot and collect. Collection is available from the front door, and for those driving there is no need to even leave your car!
Commenting, General Manager Brian Bowler said “We are delighted to be able to deliver on our promise to #stayunique by offering another way to enjoy afternoon tea – this time from home. We hope it will provide comfort to those seeking a semblance of normality amidst the current crisis. This special treat would be a thoughtful gesture for cocooning parents, a lovely surprise for the weary home cook, or a unique way to mark a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary or new baby in style! Or maybe you’re planning a socially distanced garden tea party when restrictions are eased slightly from next week”.
“The Pure Cork Afternoon Tea is an opportunity for us to get some of our team back to work, while supporting our valued local producers, community and Our Hospital Heroes, who will receive a €5 donation from every order.”
