The British Library, St Pancras, 96 Euston Road, London, NW1 2DB.

Tea and extra large muffin at the British Library

The British Library is impressive. You should go to the St Pancras site and look round the exhibitions even if you don’t need to use it for anything else. It also has rather good catering provided by Peyton and Byrne. I went to the restaurant of the London site to get myself some tea. I wanted cake as well but the cake was reasonably expensive. Then I spotted some gigantic muffins. They were big enough to have been sold as cakes, that’s how big they were. I picked coconut and raspberry and it had whole plump raspberries inside it. Look again at the photo, that’s not a trick of the camera, that muffin is actually bigger than the tea cup. The tea was okay, the normal tea bag in a cup job, but spotting those muffins made the whole experience seem exotic.

Teapot? No.
Leaf tea? No
Milk jug? Big one you helped yourself to.
Price? £1.20 for tea, £1.95 for super-sized muffin.
Cake? Yes.
Go again? Yes, but just because the British Library is worth visiting.

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.
