P&O Treat Passengers to High Tea on the High Seas


According to celebrity chef Luke Mangan, there’s no better cure for sea-sickness than a trip to his latest venture, the Salt Grill restaurant. Found on-board every member of the P&O fleet, the fine dining venue offers passengers an exquisite selection of entrees, main courses and desserts. And for those that crave a dose of afternoon sweetness, the restaurant’s high tea service is a must attend event.

High tea at Luke Mangan’s famous Salt Grill

Held in the mid-afternoon, a trip to Salt Grill’s all new high tea extravaganza isn’t a budget option. And while it definitely falls into the holiday indulgence category, for those that appreciate premium quality cuisine it is an unmissable opportunity. Using his world famous chef skills, Mangan has taken the traditional high tea and given it a contemporary twist.

A sweet tooth’s delight

Every passenger enjoys 10 mini cakes or sandwiches, a selection of teas as well as a glass of sparkling wine. The seven decadent sweet options are a sugar lover’s dream. Choices include a beautiful raspberry macaroon filled with homemade jam and juicy blueberries, an egg tart filled with silky smooth cinnamon infused custard, a tangy miniature lemon meringue pie, a reinvented lamington, a delicate chocolate éclair, a show stopping rum baba and traditional scones, jam and cream.

Scrumptious savouries

On the savoury menu are three options including a colourful coronation chicken sandwich, a smoked salmon, cream cheese, cucumber and horseradish tartine and a classic Croque Madame filled with premium quality ham and cheese and topped with a quail egg.
