HOW time flies. It has been nearly a year since we gave a four star review to the Midland’s ‘Evening Tea’, saying ‘just as Breakfast begat Brunch it was inevitable that Afternoon Tea might one day morph into Evening Tea. Not so very different from that traditional hearty Northern High Tea, maybe, only posher.”
It was a charming way to celebrate the hotel’s calm reinvention of its dedicated Tea Room with cream grey panelled walls and soft grey carpets.
Now – and weren’t we somehow prophetic – The Midland is shaking up its offering by adding a new menu to the fold. Yes, Brunch.
It shares the same elegance of Midland-branded bone china, white tablecloths and beautiful cake stands, this time serving up mini portions of dishes such as waffle with crispy streaky bacon and maple syrup, baked eggs with chorizo, spinach and portobello mushrooms and Brioche French toast with cinnamon and much more – with great views across St Peter’s Square.
Available every day from 10.30am-1.30pm, brunch will cost £19 per person. For those who’d like to add a mid-morning cocktail or two, there is also an option to enjoy a bottomless brunch with a choice of Prosecco, Mimosa, Bloody Mary, Bellini, beer and lager for an additional £20 a head.
The Midland, 16 Peter St, Manchester M60 2DS. Brunch at the Tea Room and Midland Bar will be available daily from Monday, May 13 and can be booked online here. Walk-ins are also welcomed.
