Twenty Princes Street, located inside Hotel Indigo Edinburgh Princes Street, has been recognised in the Afternoon Tea Awards 2024 and was the only Scottish venue to receive an accolade this year.

The awards, which are hosted in association with AfternoonTea.co.uk, celebrate venues across the UK that offer guests a delicious afternoon tea experience of the highest standard, going above and beyond with the best ingredients and service.

Twenty Princes Street received an ‘Award of Excellence’ in this year’s awards, one of only four venues outside of London to receive this in 2024 and the only venue based in Scotland.

Exploring new themes regularly, including most recently a Hendrick’s G&T Afternoon Tea, Twenty Princes Street’s afternoon tea menu includes all the classics including sweet and savoury favourites made from local ingredients, as well as the opportunity to upgrade with champagne, served with the impressive backdrop of Edinburgh castle.

"We pride ourselves on providing our guests with an afternoon tea experience that can’t be found anywhere else in Scotland and being the only venue in the region awarded with an ‘Award of Excellence’ really cements our position and is a testament to the fantastic team at Twenty Restaurant.

"We encourage anyone who loves afternoon tea to come and visit us and experience it for themselves.”

 Keith Newton, managing director of AfternoonTea.co.uk added: “The award winners have demonstrated that they can offer customers a fantastic Afternoon Tea experience, and value for money, during challenging economic times.”

 Afternoon Tea at Twenty Princes Street starts from £35pp and is available to book directly on the hotel’s website.
