when entertaining visitors from other countries it is imperative to allow them to experience true Englishness. so we've had howling winds, driving rain, hail, sleet, threats of snow - typical English spring, and to make up for the weather some nice afternoon tea.
a nice selection of sandwiches, (you can choose 4 types, white or granary bread, with crusts or without), scones with clotted cream and jam, and fruit cake with a nice slab of wensleydale cheese. and endless tea.
and for me a gluten free version, pre-ordered, there was a nervous moment while the waitress who didn't know about it went to check with the kitchen, but it was ok, there was gluten free bread, obviously home made, - you can tell from the door stop sandwiches, (gf bread is not known for it's lightness) which was yummy, and a bought in scone and fruit cake, both gf so I was very happy bunny.
and did I mention the tea...
