Long may they continue in the same tradition. Old fashioned but carefully produced cakes, pies and the hampers at Xmas are treat. The iced buns, tea biscuits and brack are world beating.
The café is of a high standard but is a bit weird. The service is haphazard from professional: the girls in smart black uniforms, to oddly presented and presenting people, who seem to emerge randomly from the kitchen at times.
Breakfast stops at lunchtime but restarts at 3pm ... pointless, when a stottie full of breakfast stuff can still be had. And Fortune's kippers are for breakfast too.
Spoiled a little on last trip when after lunch we wanted a cup of tea each, i.e. a pot with 2 teabags and 2 cups. What arrived were 2 teapots, 2 jugs of hot water, 2 bowls to put the teabags in when the tea was strong enough and 2 milk jugs. What a waste of time and effort and money - I guess it's so we could be charged £2.25 each. The trouble is there was just too much weak tea as it doesn't brew so well as in one pot when making for two people, so most of it was left. A disappointment that could be avoided by keeping it simple. A refresher trip to Betty's would be useful, e.g., they do an excellent Omelette Arnold Bennett which might be adopted with local smoked haddock, ignore their prices though!
