The Cream Tea Diaries

We had an excellent cream tea at Clumber Park on Monday – our second visit of the year. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.


There are many things I could say about the National Trust, and they wouldn’t all be compliments, but they do know how to put on a good cream tea. At Clumber they may have staffing issues, as we’ve found on both visits, but the teas, when you eventually get them, are excellent.

To be fair, if you take scones, jam and cream it should be hard to get it wrong. On both visits the food has been excellent but the service has stuttered a bit.


There is actually a Cream Tea event coming up –

    National Cream Tea Day sounds like a wonderful thing, Quercus and Julia! Now if only there was a fish & chips day, too. It is very hard to get good fish & chips here. πŸ™‚

    Life has been in the summer work fast lane here, Quercus and Julia, and I am sorry to have been away and just be diving in again. I am off to harp guitar retreat soon here too, and my own June post may not be until early July. Stay well, and stay out of the hospital. πŸ™‚

      I just read that post. I was sorry to hear how you were treated – it seems very poor service, and very disruptive to the cycling. We went for lunch in Whitby today and Julia asked them to put salad in our sandwiches. Salad!
