The limited-edition afternoon tea menu includes a savoury selection of honey roast ham with Arran mustard and tomato on wholemeal, smoked Scottish salmon, cucumber and cream cheese on white as well as a caramelised red onion and goats cheese quiche amongst other tasty treats. Those with a sweet tooth can enjoy mini bites such as a strawberries and cream cupcake, black forest brownie gateaux and a lemon meringue tart.

The pop-up, located in the ‘Green Room’, has been decorated by Edinburgh-based florist, Wild Flowers, to create a stunning and fragrant indoor British summer garden. It is the largest to date to be created in Tigerlily, with over 1,000 stems of flowers and foliage used in total.

The Sipsmith gin garden will remain open throughout the summer and into mid-September.
