Verdict? Espresso martinis are a dangerous drink, but super fun. Delicious and sweet, they hype you up while sneakily getting you tipsy. Paired with a mountain of yummy food - each sweet and savoury morsel small enough to pick up and eat with one hand, so you never have to let go of the martini glass? Yes, please! Hidden away in the Market Lane Bar, the adults only affair was a welcome twist to the traditional afternoon tea, and we enjoyed a decadent and slightly cheeky afternoon with friends.
