It’s been a successful summer for Thornton Hall Hotel and Spa.
After winning Best Tasting Afternoon Tea of the Year Awards, the hotel is also celebrating inclusion in the top 50 list for hospitality across the globe according to the LUX Life publication.
The Wirral venue is well known for its afternoon tea, which includes a choice of more than 20 varieties of loose leaf tea, plus dainty finger sandwiches with seasonal fillings accompanied by homemade cakes, pastries and baked scones with bespoke jams and curds.
Thornton Hall Hotel and Spa general manager Geoff Dale says: “To be up against many five star London venues and win is quite an achievement. I’m so proud of the whole team the Lawns’ head chef Chad Hughes, our pastry chef Ellie Fletcher and restaurant manager Abdallah Othmani.
“As we were the only countryside hotel we also took our view with us on two pop ups with photos of our gardens, so the judges could really get the Thornton Hall experience.”
Editor of competition organiser Hotel F&B magazine Joe Bill adds: “The standard of food and tea pairings was exceptional. Some of these hotels have spent years refining their afternoon tea service and they really brought their ‘A’ game to the first ever awards.
“There was a lot of pressure to perform in front of a crowd and in a time limit, and judges were really impressed with the professionalism of the teams.”
