The standard components for cream tea were all present and correct as warm scones were served with clotted cream, peach jam and sweet tea. However it was a tantalising treat to also be offered toffee waffles and banofee pie whilst soft lemon sponge cake arrived on a trolley with custard slices. Crumbly digestive biscuits created a lovely texture that complemented creme caramels and a refreshing zing from lime sorbet.
Floral notes from fresh figs then joined under ripe mango with the mouth coating dryness of banana skin. With a little water honey arrived on burnt toast with ginger tea. However to finish we discovered baked Alaska with maple syrup and a touch of white pepper and cloves on shortbread.
