If afternoon tea is on the agenda, you may as well go all out. Nothing screams glamour and indulgence more than high tea at Palm Court. Enter the iconic Balmoral Hotel and absorb every ounce of its grandeur, from the tea cups that stand gracefully to the magnificent artworks adoring the walls. The high tea menu is one fit for royalty and the wondrous selection of loose leaf teas are impeccable. Sip on The Royal Scottish Balmoral Blend, Famous Edinburgh, or Rooibos, and nibble away on the finest sandwiches consisting of Balmoral smoked salmon, Isle of Mull cheddar, and traditional Scottish ham. The scones appear straight from the oven and are as fresh as can be. Make sure to save room though: the icing on the cake is undeniably the chef’s very own seasonal pastries.
