Afternoon Tea at Six BALTIC | Review

Going for afternoon tea might actually be one of my favourite things to do! I’d probably class it as one of my hobbies as I’ve become a bit of serial afternoon tea goer.

Last Sunday, myself and my Mam headed to Six the stunning rooftop restaurant situated on the sixth floor of Newcastle’s legendary BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art for afternoon tea.

I’ve had the pleasure of dining at Six before, you might remember back in October my review here, where I went along to sample their Early Evening menu. I was so impressed by the food, buying local and eating local is the restaurant’s ethos and they’ve totally embraced it wholeheartedly. The ingredients and recipes are truly amazing therefore you could say I had a very high expectation for their afternoon tea.

I mentioned before that Six is a stunning rooftop restaurant, what I mean by this is the views are out of this world. Newcastle is a beautiful city with bundles of life and personality, Six really shows that off. With it being a Sunday we had a view of the Quayside Outdoor market which brings in a few thousand people every week, we also had the famous view of the River Wear, the millennium bridge and the Tyne Bridge. So picturesque! I’ll never get bored of the views. It was nice to see the view in daylight as the last time I visited it was evening.

We got seated in what felt like the best seat in the house and began to unwind as we took in the view. Since it was my Mam’s first visit she was mesmerised! The staff at Six are so attentive, they really can’t do enough for you and make you feel at ease instantly. The afternoon tea menu goes like this:

Sandwichs

Pickled Carrot Cream Cheese (v)
Goats Cheese & Tomato Basil Pesto (v)
Roast Beef & Horseradish
Ham & Mustard

Savoury

Broccoli & Doddington Cheese Quiche (v)
Cheddar Scone, Acorn Butter

Sweet

Orange & Carrot Macaron (v)
Tropical Cream & Coconut (v)
Chocolate Coffee Cake (v)
Fruit Scone, Clotted Cream, Strawberry Jam (v)

Tea

Storm Organic Tea or Rington’s Triple-Certified Filter Coffee

Prices range from:

Classic Afternoon Tea £19.95
Prosecco Afternoon Tea £24.95
Champagne Afternoon Tea £29.95

We went for the classic as Six have an incredible cocktail menu! Since I was designated driver I went for the mocktail Blackberry Sherbet which is basically blackberries, cranberry, lemonade and rosemary (£6) and my Mam went for the Bramble which is basically Millers Gin, lemon and mure (£9). After a short wait our food, tea and cocktails arrived.

Naturally, I dived in for the sandwichs, which were delightful. The bread was fresh, chunky and ultra tasty! I loved the variation of fillings, I can’t bare the bog standard egg mayonnaise and the likes. I often usually leave the sandwichs as I am a bit picky but these were to my liking! My favourite was the goats cheese and tomato basil pesto.

I then went for the quiche which was a great addition to the mix, it was divine! I wish all afternoon tea’s had a mini quiche! The sweet selection was fantastic too, the homemade fruit scone was truly scrumptious and served warm which was impressive. I devoured the chocolate coffee cake which was so moist and a creative mixture of rich ingredients.

The afternoon tea was very filling, so much so we ended up getting a box to take over the sweet treats we hadn’t touched. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and drinks meaning I’ll be back very soon! I’d definitely recommend anyone visiting Six, it’s genuinely 10/10, total 5* dining.

    I love that they have quiche on the afternoon tea now! My favourites always include extra things on the savoury tier, makes it a little different to the usual sandwiches!

    Love Six, some of the best views in Newcastle!
