Meaning anyone who’s up for a free one-night staycation could bag their dream job for the day.

Not only will the chosen guests be given a complimentary night’s stay and free access to spa facilities as well as the delicious meal, but they’ll also be paid £100 to attend.

You can also bring a plus one of your choice to join you as you explore the gorgeous Cumbrian countryside, lakes and hill walking.

The restaurant has a sublime lake view and you’ll be asked to taste test the whole menu.

The £28.50 afternoon tea includes a number of savoury items – including sticky barbecue pork belly sliders, vegetable skewers with lime drizzle, prawn and avocado tacos, a jerk chicken bon bon and tuna sushi roll.

As for the sweet choices on offer? Expect mango and passion fruit chocolate shells with toasted golden sand, white chocolate tropical donuts, a pineapple and chocolate coconut, flamingo strawberry cookies and kiwi and watermelon mousse.

There’s also a passion fruit eclair available and warm tropical scones with classic clotted cream and succulent passion fruit curd.

On the side you can enjoy either Pina coladas or virgin Pina coladas as well as a selection of tasty teas.

The luxury afternoon tea testers can attend between now and September 20.

The Daffodil hotel website stated: “Our Summer Afternoon Tea is filled with tropical vibes and we are looking for a team of tasters to sample our tea to make sure it’s the best in the UK!"

It continued: “You and a plus one could spend an afternoon enjoying our exciting new Tropical Afternoon Tea, whilst admiring the views over Grasmere water in the stunningly beautiful Lake District.

“Relax in our award-winning spa, and dine in our Lake View Restaurant, explore the picturesque village of Grasmere surrounded by the scenic, and highly Instagrammable, mountains, before retiring for the evening with a one night stay in a Lake View room. "

Those entering must be over 18 and the competition closes midnight on August 26 (that’s tomorrow).

You’ll need to be able to make your own way to the hotel and cover your own travel expenses.
