One of my sisters turned 40 today and to celebrate we went to an afternoon tea at Pirlo’s Dessert Lounge. I’ve been there before quite a few times and I’ve had the afternoon tea there once and really enjoyed it so thought it would be perfect for my sisters and niece’s first experience to be there and it did not disappoint.
Pirlo’s dessert lounge is situated in Coventry Street, B5 5NY. There is a pay & display car park nearby as well as Moor Street car park.
As this was a special occasion, we booked the Luxury Afternoon Tea. This comprised of a selection of 5 finger sandwiches each, scones with clotted cream and jam, macaroons, mini Victoria sponge, carrot cake, chocolate brownie, Ferrero Rocher and strawberries dipped in chocolate as well as a choice of 2 hot drinks and a bottle of non alcoholic fizz.
It all came beautifully presented and everything was delicious. The service was great too.
I booked our afternoon tea online the day before as they needed at least 12 hours notice before booking. The Luxury Afternoon Tea is £32 for two people, and the regular afternoon tea is £24 for two.
All the food served here is halal. I’ve recently found out that they have started serving hot food every day from 6pm-1am. I am yet to try from their hot food menu. The black burger bun looks interesting! If you’ve had the hot food from there, what did you think?
Now help me settle a debate with my sisters and niece – when it comes to scones, what should go on first? Clotted cream or jam? I prefer to put the clotted cream first followed by the jam. Does it make a difference to you which way you put them in? Let me know your thoughts!
