On our way back from holiday in Cornwall, we visited Montacute House, hoping to enjoy the usual fine cream teas on offer with National Trust. Unfortunately, due to high winds, the house had to close, resulting in having to go in the village for sustenance, and recommended by the staff.
We liked the look of the toy museum/tea room, so took a seat. After ordering two cream teas, from a harrassed looking waiter, we sat and waited at least 15 minutes. When the tea arrived, the scone was scorching hot, clearly having been in a microwave, and had the consistency of a bread roll. The cups were a chunky pottery style, totally unsuitable for afternoon tea, so a major disappointment all round. The waiter didnt look up from the till, or speak as we left, so we shan't be returning when we re-visit the house next time.
