I found this tea room on line & fell for its quirky charm. I am a former resident of Bath but this place was new to me.
I was greeted by a friendly waitress on arrival & invited to choose a table whilst I waited for my companion to join me for lunch. I ordered a pot of breakfast tea (it was loose leaf) whilst I waited & it arrived with a 3 minute timer. The tea was very good, although not as good as the tea I'd sampled earlier at Barton's Tea Room. I am very fussy however with tea!
The were a few items of the day:- pumpkin or broccoli & Gorgonzola soups, ham & leek quiche and shepherds pie. We both opted for the broccoli & Gorgonzola soup - I had it with a (warm) roll and butter and my companion had it with a toasted cheese & tomato sandwich. The soup was delicious. My warm roll was good to start with, but as it cooled it became a little too crispy.
After our lunch plates had been cleared and we were waiting to build up a bit of an appetite to sample the amazing selection of cakes, the waitress offered us hot water to top up our tea pots, which was good.
When able to tackle cake, I chose carrot cake & my companion opted for lemon cake with a meringue topping! The carrot cake was firm but incredibly moist & fresh testing with a gorgeous tasting frosting (which I'm not keen on if it's too sweet) and my companion thoroughly enjoyed the lemon cake.
We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and it was apparent that a fair amount of the customers were regular patrons.
I would recommend it as well worth a visit if you fancy something traditional & might appreciate the 1940s ornaments and music.
