A friend and I came to Castle Cary after a visit to a vintage fabric sale nearby. After a good look round some of the lovely shops in the village, we spotted Mother's Little Vintage Tea Room, and it seemed apt to pop in for a cuppa. I'm so glad we did. The decor was straight out of the 1930's/40's, with each table laid up with vintage hand embroidered cloths and china cake-stands. On a sideboard at the back there were a selection of delicious looking homemade cakes.
The waitress that served us was friendly and attentive, and the menus were extensive (a whole menu each for teas and coffees, and another for soft drinks and snacks!). I dont think I have ever seen such a huge selection of tea! We decided on the traditional cream tea with RAF tea (some of the proceeds of which are donated to Help for Heros). The scones were perfect, the cream and jam delicious and the tea plentiful. To round off our enjoyable experience, we were presented with a little posy of flowers each to celebrate Mother's Day the following day - a really nice touch!
It wasn't the cheapest cream tea, but worth every penny for the ambience and the charm of the place. A real Saturday afternoon treat!
