Laura Ashley The Tea Room in Solihull has launched a new  brunch menu to sit alongside its traditional afternoon tea.

The new brunch dishes will be available from 10am until 1pm and include a savoury breakfast muffin, French toast, Welsh rarebit, Eggs Benedict, Royale or Florentine, and avocado on toast.

It has options for vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free and lactose-free diets and is priced from £4.

“The local dining scene has seen a huge increase in demand for brunch. It’s the perfect opportunity for friends and family to gather and enjoy together,” said Nigel Cooke, head chef at Laura Ashley The Tea Room Solihull.

“We are very excited to be one of the first tea rooms in the West Midlands to offer brunch, as well as traditional afternoon tea.”

The tea room has also introduced Birchall Tea iced tea to the drinks menu ahead of the summer months, available in peppermint, lemongrass & ginger, Earl Grey & lime, Darjeeling & peach and red berry flavours.

Laura Ashley The Team Room also has stores at Burnham Beeches, Coventry and Highbullen.
