Afternoon tea with a twist, well a cupcake of your choice along with the usual suspects, crustless sammies, scones, cake and tea.
All this is served on gorgeous mismatched vintage chinaware and with proper silver cutlery, a nice touch.
To get to this secret tearoom, you go into the pub and ask at the bar. They will allow you behind the bar and up the stairs you go.
My ginger scone was delicious, not huge, a smallish scone, but it had a subtle ginger kick which I liked. I paid an extra 75p supplement to have hot choc instead of tea. It came in a pot and was thick and dark, very nice indeed!
The Sammie's were traditional, egg and cress, yummy, cream cheese and chives, yummy and cucumber, not so yummy! The good thing is you can choose what ones you want, a mixture or all the same.
The only sad thing was the paper tablecloths. I understand that with high turnover in places, paper is becoming the norm. It should not be, fabric feels nicer, looks nicer and you can wash it!!!
It's a very popular secret... So booking in advance is advised.
