My Canadian friend has afternoon tea on her list of things to do in England so since we were spending the day in Cambridge we though why not check out somewhere there for it. We browsed online for places to have it and looking at the menu and price we thought this was the best choice. Honestly we didn't even consider the place's ambiance, just the food and to our surprise this place was amazing. The place was only a little outside of Cambridge town and there was so much greenery. We arrived and wasn't sure where to go but people at the reception was very helpful. Our waiter Lucy was very accommodating,he first took us to seats inside but when I saw the sunny whether I wanted to sit outside so she let us choose anywhere we like and came to find out to set the table after.
The garden was so pretty, there was a little river with fishes in, a little bridge over it. It was so cute. We chose to sit next to the water fountain. Behind my friend was steps leading to a little cage sitting thing - not sure what they're called but very cute. My friend and I did our own little photoshoot in that garden! The fact that it was a little bit outside of town it was quiet and pretty much had the garden to ourselves where we took our time to chat and eat.
The afternoon tea was so good! We had a selection of yummy sandwiches; a choice of either cheese scone or fruit scones. We both had the fruit scone with clotted cream and jam, you can tell the scones were made fresh, it was nice and warm and so soft! We were so full by the time we go to the dessert level but we had to try it all because it looked gorgeous. I loved the jelly and the macroon personally. Sarah's favourite was the earl grey tea (I had english breakfast), it was loose tea leaf and the fact that they kept up topped up with tea was definitely a bonus. less
