Crook Hall Gardens 5/7

Especially for the Shutterchance afternoon tea connoisseurs among you this was our cream tea which we enjoyed in the inner courtyard, all the tables in the garden areas being taken at the time. Just look at the size of my scone, bottom right, and the ample supply of cream and jam to go with it, not forgetting a generous sized pot of tea, needless to say it was delicious!

I believe I would enjoy this, especially in the company of Maureen and you, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you would and it would be nice with your company and Philine's who also would like to join us for tea.
A perfect afternoon Tea!
Brian Walbey: Very much so Elizabeth, one of the highlights of England.
M,mmmmm
Brian Walbey: Thought you might think that Frank.
Did someone say SCONES! You have no idea how much I love these cream teas, Brian!
Brian Walbey: I have gained some idea of how much you like cream teas Ginnie, no doubt you have had a few during your visits here during the past few years.

Now that looks very appealing to me and I think Ginnie is already sitting down and making herself a nice scone with jam and clotted cream.... HA..
What a delight to sit down and relax.
Brian Walbey: A cream tea is one of the highlights of a day out as far as we are concerned.

This can entice a photographer away from the hobby smile
Brian Walbey: Indeed Louis, an English speciality.
I have had scones with jam but have never tried this cream. looks good.
Brian Walbey: This is the full English cream tea you have seen some of refer to from time to time, it takes a lot of beating, so next time you go to the supermarket get a pack of cream to have with your scone and jam, it's called spoiling oneself smile
Yes - I recall that the team room was pretty good!
Brian Walbey: Sadly all the tawbles in the garden area were being used but we still enjoyed our cream tea.

Now this looks my kind of place. The china teapot is a very big plus point; some much my civilised than those ghastly drippy stainless steel things.The scone (singular? Tut, tut) looks lovely. I was not planning to have a cream tea today when we stopped on our walk but even more so when I say the price - £7.50! It is all aimed at the yachties who seem t have more money than sense usually.
Brian Walbey: £7.50 is pushing it a bit, I don't think the NT costs that much. We had a cream tea in North Devon some years ago and we noticed it being served with two massive scones plus a mass of jam and cream so ended up sharing one between us, we'd never had made a single tea each.
Looks good Brian!
Brian Walbey: It most certainly was Bill.
