Indulgent Chocolate Tea launches for Easter


A NEW Chocolate Cream Tea will launch at Hopetoun House to celebrate the end of lent on Good Friday.

The Stables Kitchen, located on the estate, has designed the treat to create a memorable chocolate experience and reward adults who have given up chocolate for 40 days.

Siobhan Leith, Head of Marketing at Heritage Portfolio, catering partner at Hopetoun House, said: “Adults are probably more guilty of having a sweet tooth than children and if you are a true chocoholic and have managed to survive 40 days of cocoa abstinence then we really believe you are deserving of the best Chocolate Cream Tea.

“Our Chef Alison and her team rose to the challenge to create a gourmet delight for all chocolate lovers.”

The new Chocolate Cream Tea starts with a warming cup of hot chocolate accompanied by a chocolate scone with cream and jam, followed by three treats featuring white, milk and dark chocolate.

The Chocolate Cream Tea costs £8.50 per person and will be available from the Stables Kitchen from 19th April until the end of May.

Parking is free at Hopetoun House and optional tickets to access the grounds cost £4.75 for adults and £2.95 for children per day.
