Win “Orchard Afternoon Tea” for two at One Square

One Square, in partnership with The Edinburgh Reporter, is giving one lucky reader and their guest an opportunity to win Orchard Afternoon Tea at One Square between the end of the competition on 9 October and 15 November 2015.  Just answer the question below to be in with a chance!

As the leaves turn a coppery glow this autumn, One Square is bringing the fruity flavours of an Orchard to the heart of the city with a unique Orchard Afternoon Tea.

The traditional fruit harvest season has inspired One Square’s talented Pastry team who are renowned for creating an inventive afternoon tea, with a twist. The Orchard Afternoon Tea combines fruit with savoury delicacies including orange poached Loch Duart salmon with burnt clementines on rye, and slow cooked Gressingham duck & sweet cherry compote on toasted thyme brioche.

For those who enjoy the sweeter delights of afternoon tea, guests will savour an apple sorbet lollipop made with locally-brewed Thistly Cross Cider, along with a toffee apple cream slice. The ubiquitous scone has not been forgotten with a traditional plain variety mixed in with kirsch soaked cherry, served with Devonshire clotted cream and blackcurrant jam.

To wash it down, One Square’s bar team has created a choice of two fruity gin cocktails including an Orchard Mimosa with ginger and fresh orange, topped with Thistly Cross Elderflower Cider. While the Secret Garden features lime juice, elderflower and strawberries, topped with Thistly Cross Strawberry Cider.

To enter the competition simply answer this question by 5:00pm on 9 October 2015
