Looking for a spot to gossip, indulge in a treat or two. Pretend you’ve just stepped off the set of a 50’s Hollywood film I’ve got the prefect place  for you….

Yesterday I had the pleasure of stepping foot into the gorgeous Malmaison Hotel for Afternoon Tea. I’ve lived in Belfast for 14 years now and I have to say I can’t actually remember crossing the threshold of the Malmaison before (although I have stood outside in the rain waiting for a certain boy band but that’s  an altogether different story). I don’t know why I haven’t, its a lovely decadent place full of wonder and fun artifacts.


Anyway I had called in with a friend to have afternoon tea thanks to the lovely people from Ohhsocial and  yes before you say it  I have become somewhat of an official afternoon tea taster of Belfast. If you’ve been reading my blogs right from the start with nigossipguy you will know at this point I have sampled quite a few and yes my waistline shows every signal delicious morsel. What is it my granny used to say  ” a moment on the lips a lifetime on the hips” anyway I go by another motto I’ll eat it now and work it off in the Gym later!


Anyway I digress, guys the afternoon tea at Malmaison Hotel Belfast is in my top five and it was  the BIGGEST afternoon tea that I have tasted in the city, with full size delicious wraps filled with flaked  hot smoked salmon & crème fraîche wrap, chipotle chicken & avocado wraps, mini slider burgers, salted chocolate brownies, lemon & polenta cake, peach & Amaretto cream, frozen summer berry smoothie and your choice of specialty teas. It also  came with my personal favourites strawbery and vanilla and an overflowing cup of  good strong coffee, I was in my element. There was so much to see and eat I didn’t know where to get started and myself and my companion struggled to make even a dent into this feast fit to feed an army!

But never fear we sat, eat, soaked in the atmosphere and gossiped for over two hours. The staff where very attentive, friendly and obliging and we had a ball of a time. I only wish we had time to have had a few cocktails or maybe a glass of champagne but there is always next time!
