The last time I was there was with Val from 'Gardening in a Sandbox' and after a healthy salad I had my usual tea.
The cup and saucer didn't have a pattern name on it and each patron has a different one, so it's a mix and match tea room which is even better.
Once I tried this tea called 'Monk's Blend' I've ordered it every time and I'd say it's similar to an Earl Grey cream. The Victorian decor in the restaurant always includes a doily under the cup.
The desserts to choose from were decadent and screaming calories but I'm weak and decided on one I hadn't had before.
Oh my gosh, this sticky toffee pudding was soooo good with the warm caramel sauce drizzled over it. It kind of put me in mind of the Christmas pudding with rum sauce my mother used to make.
One of the things I've always liked about Victoria magazine is the tea sets and fine dishes they'd show. This yellow chintzware featured in the back of a few issues had me thinking how pretty it would look on our dining room table.
