A country-house styled venue, the Plough and Harrow may look like it belongs in a rural spot but its appearance belies the fact that it situated in Egbaston, Birmingham. rnrnConstructed in 1704 and operating as a wayside inn, the Plough and Harrow has come a long way since and has been sympathetically refurbished over recent years. Retaining much of its character and charm, the Plough and Harrow in Edgbaston offers a delightful city location in which to enjoy the genteel pastime of afternoon tea.rnrnReviving the time-honoured tradition of afternoon tea is something the Plough and Harrow have done admirably, remaining faithful to the established staple fare to offer an authentic interpretation of a classic. All food is freshly prepared, with the use of British and local produce the order of the day wherever possible. A selection of fine finger sandwiches includes delicious fillings of free-range egg and cress, and Wiltshire ham with a subtle kick from the partnering addition of grain mustard mayonnaise. A freshly baked scone with Cornish clotted cream and preserve is followed by an additional pastry treat, certain to satisfy even the strongest sweet tooth. Award-winning tea from Birchalls cleanses the palate and quenches a thirst.rnrnDuring the winter months, afternoon tea can be enjoyed in the Plough and Harrow's spacious lounge area; an attractive room in which to relax and unwind. The terrace provides a pleasant outside dining option when the weather is favourable where afternoon tea is accompanied by a symphony of sounds emanating from the gardens.rnrnWith the nearby attractions of Symphony Hall, the NIA and the NEC there is lots to keep visitors thoroughly amused. But before seeking twenty-first century entertainment, rediscover the age-old form of afternoon tea at the Plough and Harrow in Egbaston.
