After visiting the wonderful Fox Talbot museum and exhibition, and then walking round the Botanic Garden and the Abbey, I felt in dire need of a cup of tea! I decided to venture beyond the NT's own café, and have a quick walk round the village too. I thought the entrance to this establishment looked enticing; seeing the deserted outdoor tables I wished the weather had been slightly more clement - and then found the inside was almost full, but a small table was vacant. My choice of tea with drop scones was unavailable, so I settled for a slice of coffee and walnut cake instead. The traditional leaf tea was served in a proper manner, with a pot of hot water, a strainer, and milk in a small jug - and just about provided three cups of the best tea I've had in quite a while. The cake was good too, but at £3.75 for an (admittedly) large slice I thought it quite expensive.
