A rainbow unicorn-themed spread offering three tiers of sweet and savoury treats will be available at the Theatre Street venue from January.

Pastel rainbow birthday cake, sparkling macarons and cloud-shaped shortcake biscuits are among the tempting treats to enjoy.

Chef director Richard Hughes said: “The very first themed afternoon tea we ever had at The Assembly House was Rainbow Unicorn in 2017 so we thought we’d bring it back, albeit in a new format for 2022.

“We were astonished at how popular our first themed tea was and it was the beginning of something really special for us. A huge amount of work goes into each tea, especially from Mark and his team, and we are so proud of what we have created.”
