Just had a cream tea at this hotel booked a table in the front of the sun lounge by the window. A lovely view. I had a decaf tea served in a lovely teapot matching the same pattern to all the crockery, ours was in a poppy style. The tray arrived serving sandwiches selected specifically by my husband.... Salmon, prawn, ham and egg mayonnaise. The second tier was carrot cake, coffee and walnut cake and lemon drizzle soaked with lemon, intermingled with raspberries, fabulous. On top were scones already piled with jam, clotted cream and fresh cranberries on top. To finish, my husband had ordered strawberries with clotted cream served in a martini glass each and sparkling wine in champagne flutes.
A beautiful cream tea to celebrate 10 years marriage together.
