Afternoon Tea: Indo-French Tea Parties

Afternoon Tea: Indo-French Tea Parties

As part of our commitment to #SupportLeicesterLocal businesses, we're teaming up with fantastic French baker Chouxtique to bring you a unique take on afternoon tea. Yes, India meets France in our new Sunday afternoon party offering.

We never shy away from a challenge at Lilu. Our journey through Indian fine dining has taken us around the Indian subcontinent. Now we bring that learning back to Leicester and team up with our new friends to bring you something delicious.

Groups of 15 or more can book in advance to enjoy this special treat. It's afternoon tea like you've never seen it before. Chouxtique is a new bakery business in town. Nathalie is spreading the good word of choux pastry to Leicester. She can be often found selling her wares at the Local Producer Showcase at our sister deli, the Wigston Fields News & Deli.

A match made in Leicester

Now enjoy a mix of freshly made treats. It's the perfect way to celebrate with a group of friends. Hen parties, baby showers, birthday parties. What celebration isn't improved with quiche and beetroot marinaded paneer? Or profiteroles and gajjar halwa? They may seem unconventional pairings, but Leicester dances to its own tune. We believe delicious will always match with delicious.

Afternoon tea - enjoy Indian delight gajjar halwa

Come and try it for yourself. Advanced booking only, get in touch via this website. The cost is £25 per head. This price includes the choice of a glass of champagne or a locally sourced sparkling wine - the rose sparkling Noble Purpose from Rothley Wine Estate, or elderflower sparkling from Witham Wines.

If afternoon tea is not your thing don't worry. You can always hire Lilu for private parties with our standard party menu. Find out more on our venue hire page.
