If there are two things the UK does well, it’s Harry Potter and afternoon tea. And, now, a Harry Potter-themed afternoon tea has launched in Nottingham in the UK.
The Brasserie of Witchcraft and Wizardry will operate at Colwick Hall throughout October and November, and its serving up some magic puns: Philosopher’s scones, Slytherin’s finger sandwiches, Polyjuice pea and mint soup, and cheese wands.
For dessert, there are butterbeer caramel cheesecakes and chocolate frog cupcakes, but the drinks are the real showstoppers. Aptly named Professor Snape’s Potions, the mocktails are named after some of the Harry Potter series’ most-famous concoctions, like Felix Felicis, the Draught of Living Death, and the Elixir of Life.
Tickets cost $30 (£30) for two people from Monday to Wednesday or $40 (£23.95) for two people from Thursday to Sunday. Well-behaved owls are permitted and reservations can be made via the website.
