The Royal Carlton Hotel restaurant is situated right on the famous promenade on Blackpool seafront, where classic British food is served daily from lunchtime until late.
There is a delicious choice of starters, light bites, hearty meals and desserts to choose from, but on our visit, we opted to try their Afternoon Tea.
Now their version is a little different to the traditional Afternoon Tea you may have had before. Instead, you choose a full size sandwich from the menu, along with your selection of cake. They are served with a pot of tea each. We were thoroughly enjoying our lunch, thinking this was the extent of our Afternoon Tea. However, that was not the case. We were then presented with a big jug of Pimms and two glasses.
As it was a lovely warm day, we took it outside and sat on the decking in front of the hotel, where we drinking it, whilst people watching.
What a lovely couple of hours.
You must do this when you visit.
