Harveys’ at Winchester Mansions has long been a favourite among Mother City dwellers (and tourists) for its fabulous sea-facing location and genteel surrounds on the Sea Point coastline. Its Italian-style fountained courtyard is the perfect place for relaxed Sunday brunches, and elegant high teas.
And now, you and three lucky friends could stand the chance of experiencing not one, but both of these sought-after activities by simply entering our competition. Here’s what to expect:
The Jazz Brunch
When you arrive, you’ll be welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine and a complimentary newspaper to ease you into your Sunday, with the sweet strains of live jazz setting the tone.
The buffet-style brunch, served from 11am to 2pm, has something for everyone. Seriously. From pastries and cheeses to traditional English breakfasts, sushi, salads, a carvery, cold meats – and, yes, decadent desserts too! As for the music, the tender tunes come courtesy of renowned local and international artists such as Tina Schouw, Andrew Lilley, Stephen De Sousa, Maurice Gawronsky, Abigail Peterson, Mike Campbell, Amy Campbell, Maurice Gawronsky Titilayo Adedokun, Andrew Ford, and Wesley Rustin, who delicately provide the soothing backtrack.
The High Tea
Served every Saturday from 2.30pm to 5.30pm, everything on the well-filled three-tiered silver trays is tasty and flavourful. The top two tiers are laden with brownies, scones, meringues, cheesecake, and more, while the bottom tier comprises bite-sized savoury treats, including smoked-salmon sandwiches; a cheese-and-mustard palmier; brie-and-cranberry croissant; bacon-and-cheese quiche; chicken-mayo wrap; and mozzarella, tomato and pesto skewers.
Choose from a selection of black, green and herbal tea bags, and keep a watch or phone nearby to track steeping time or you may be left with over-steeped bitter tea. Drink two or three cups while you chatter away and listen to the live tunes and soft serenades.
What a wonderful way to spend a weekend!
