The Metropole Hotel in Cork City is offering a Halloween Themed Afternoon Tea this weekend. The Spooktacular Halloween Themed Afternoon Tea is available for delivery or pick-up at the hotel. The hotel’s chef has added some Halloween themes to the food and they also have a Halloween playlist on a QR code to really set the atmosphere at home.

The Met’s Halloween Afternoon tea really is something to be savoured. The top class offering comprises of freshly made scones with homemade clotted cream and succulent jam; perfectly cut sandwiches and a selection of mouth-watering treats.

Included in the menu are mini chocolate fondants, mini macaroons, lemon curd tarts and mini Victoria sponge. The sandwich menu includes a classic ham and Swiss cheese on white bloomer, Cork’s spiced beef rocket horseradish on brown bloomer, Cucumber Philly cheese and cress on white bloomer and smoked salmon, avocado mayonnaise and cress on soda.

As a special treat all guests who order takeaway food during October will be entered into a draw to win the Metropole’s “Brunch and Bubbles” overnight package. This includes bottomless brunch, overnight stay and breakfast.

General Manager of the Metropole Hotel, Roger Russell said: “This is a very different Halloween to what we are used to and it is sad for us not to be able to welcome our guests for afternoon tea and dinner at the moment but the priority is making sure everyone stays safe. We have decided to do something special for Halloween this year and are offering our Spooktacular Afternoon Tea. We do love that we can still connect and see our guests by having this service available and that people can enjoy these wonderful Halloween treats at home.”

Sandra Murphy of the Metropole Hotel said: “We are so excited by our wonderful take-away menus at the Metropole Hotel. They are jam packed with so many delicious treats and they are flying out the door. This Halloween is one like no other so if we can bring some joy to people’s homes with our Halloween Afternoon Tea at Home treats then we are delighted to be able to do that.”

Special dietary requirements can also be catered for on request. The price of the takeaway packages start at €25 per person and can be booked online on or by calling 021 4643700.
