Mothers Day is on 27 March, meaning that it is coming around fast.
If you are stuck for ideas of where to treat your mam this year and if she is partial to a cup of tea, sandwich and cake, fear not.
We have here a collection of cafes and restaurants dotted in and around Newcastle that serve afternoon tea.
The lounge has afternoon tea planned this Mother’s Day, but with an added bonus.
As well as the traditional tea, there will be live music on offer to enhance the experience of the special day.
Prices for the afternoon tea are £21.95 for adults and £12.95 for children under 10.
A £10 deposit per person is required.
