I am shamefully behind with my posting on here, but there are such treats as an afternoon tea for £15 waiting to be posted about and I’ll get to them as soon as I can. (Update: this review is now done, read all about it here.)
I’ve had three (yes, count them again: one, two, three) recommendations since I lasted posted! This is an excellent new record for me.
Firstly, a recommendation for Stop the World in Leigh-on-Sea: ‘I thought you might be interested to know about my favourite cafe here in Leigh-on-Sea. It’s called Stop The World and has an excellent selection of leaf tea – even a delicious decaf!!!, gorgeous food/brunch and a HUGE selection of homemade cakes and biscuits. If you like your tea shops, this is a must try!’ I am definitely visiting this place when I can next get over that way, really looking forward to that one.
Secondly, one of you got in touch to say ‘I was watching Masterchef the professionals tonight and they did a dessert challenge in a hotel in London which apparently serves the best afternoon tea anywhere’. This was the Palm Court at the Langham, which won the Tea Guild’s ‘Top London Afternoon Tea 2010’ award. I have been before, with regular afternoon tea goers N, H and E, but that was almost four years ago now so the time probably has come to go again.
And last but not least, the final recommendation was for Sally Lunn’s in Bath. The comment was ‘Tea and a Sally Lunn’s bun with cream and jam. Amazing. Addictive.’ The 100th review on this site was for Sally Lunn’s but I had my bun with soup and this is obviously where my mistake was made. I’ll try to head back soon for the cream and jam version.
I hope to head to the recommendation from the previous post, The Chocolate Teapot, next weekend and will keep you updated.
