Afternoon tea in Birmingham?

I'm going to Birmingham with my Mum for a weekend of Christmas shopping and was wondering if there was anywhere nice to go for Afternoon Tea in the city centre.

If its just tea and cakes you're after, personally I can't resist Druckers when I'm shopping in the city centre - they've got a small cafe at the corner of Temple Row/Great Western Arcade, a larger one on the top floor of the Bullring and one in the Pallasades. House of Fraser, Selfridges and Debenhams all have cafes and restaurants where you can get tea/coffee/cakes and there are coffee shops such as Starbucks/Costa Coffee etc all over town. Also an independent cafe that gets good reviews - Hudson's Coffee House in Colmore Row (between Bennetts Hill & Waterloo St).

However, all these tend to be busy, usually self service places, so if its the traditional afternoon tea experience you're looking for with sandwiches, scones etc. and waiter service in a more peaceful atmosphere I'd suggest you go to the Burlington Hotel in New Street.

Hudson’s on Colmore Row is lovely – very charming service (not self service) and they do a wonderful afternoon tea of finger sandwiches and cakes. I’m pretty sure you can jazz it up with a glass of champagne or wine if you like. The Burlington Hotel is an excellent suggestion also. The Hyatt Regency Hotel offers afternoon Tea but not such a convenient location if you are shopping.
