Heckington Windmill

The Mill Tea Rooms are a new addition to Heckington Windmill. They opened recently as part of the new plan to introduce a visitor centre.

The windmill is bigger than Wilton Windmill and worth paying to climb up and have a look around. There’s also a video showing what the mill is like when it’s working.

Anyway, back to the important bit: the tea. The tea was good. And the cake, oh, the cake! The cake was called ‘Zimpt-Schokolade-Baiser Torte’ or Cinnamon-Chocolate-Meringue cake. I’ve never tasted anything like it. It was light with specks of dark chocolate in it which wasn’t very sweet. The topping was soft brown meringue, not the bring white horror that you sometimes get. After ordering the waiter came back and asked if I was sure I didn’t want it with vanilla ice cream as it tasted very good. I wasn’t sure, so I asked for that too.  The cake was divine and I made so much of a fuss about it the guy serving got the chef out to explain how she did it. It’s her own invention so go to the windmill and try it! Go!

I like tea and if possible, I'd like it to be loose leaf rooibos in a pot served with milk in a little jug. I'll try and find the places that do this and I'll tell you what they're like. Let me know if you can think of any cafes I haven't covered, I'll get to them if I can.
