We were over from the mainland for the day and after an early start and a somewhat choppy crossing we finally strolled ashore. Apart from the massive land reclamation shock from when I was last in Jersey we were soon strolling through familiar streets, once bearings were established we headed for Howard Davis Park. After a wander round the grounds taking in the flourishing flora we came upon the delightful Rose Garden Tea Rooms and decided from the delightful setting that this was a must for weary legs to rest.
We were shown to our seat by a really pleasant young man, who when we commented on the heat compared to the mainland at this time of year he asked us if we would like several windows opening a little way, this was refreshing indeed, to have attention like this.
We gave our order and soon it was presented to us, as it was lunchtime we had baguettes filled with a considerable portion of whatever we had selected, i opted for a bacon and egg for my sins, but was delighted when the egg was as i liked it, runny. Tea was the drink of preference and a pot with several top ups from the hot water jug gave me not one cup but actually five good strength cups of tea, I was very impressed with that as after we were both invigorated and ready to do shopping.
We paid the bill to the fresh faced and extremely polite young man who gave us directions to our first shop which was thoughtful as we didn't really ask but he overheard our conversation as we were leaving.
Very pleasant surroundings and excellently presented meals, definately a rose in the park.
