Join the strawberry jam and clotted cream brigade!
Nothing beats sitting down in a posh hotel or restaurant and sipping a lovely, hot fresh brew, served by a smiling waiter or waitress. There is something inherently classy and classless about these experiences and many are offered in gorgeous old buildings that have been transformed into tranquil places to eat and drink.
We think the fact that these vouchers are for two people is great. It means you can catch up on all the gossip and news over a cup, which is why they are so popular with Mums and their daughters and for groups of girlfriends. You can also make it a day out with shopping and sightseeing, as many are in city centre locations.
If you're feeling romantic, time spent with your loved one as you chink the silverware and bite into dainty cakes whilst the piano is being played is bound to mark you serious brownie points. Mums and Dads also love a nice sit down and with some of the historic venues on offer it's like stepping back in time to a period drama - you just know they'll love it.
We personally think the chance to get away from the big smoke and into the rolling British countryside is all part of the charm for us. For instance, a glass of bubbly before sitting down at the hotel in Ludlow, also known for being a bit of a foodie's heaven, sounds like our cup of proverbial you know what.
You don't even have to stay within the country, as we've got the stunning Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin too. This is one of the Emerald Isle's most famous establishments and has seen many a famous face, so you could rub shoulders (or a fine cut sandwich) with the latest poster as you sip away on those finest leaves - perfect for people spotters!
