The time has come where we have to say goodbye to summer and hello to autumn. No longer do we have bright blue skies with a beaming sun and glorious heat; but rather a crisp morning with a breeze that makes you feel refreshed and energised. Though the thought of potential rain and gloomy days are ones that we may not look forward to, something that I feel helps us all feel a little better is the fresh produce we get in these months.
You may have noticed that our menus have had a few changes recently, especially when we came into the summer months, well as the seasons are changing we feel our menus should reflect this and make use of all the delicious produce coming into season. As well as our classic, oven cooked baked potatoes with various toppings, daily homemade soups and ‘on toast’ and ‘croque’ dishes, we see the return of the popular Warm Chili Chicken Salad and Smoked Mackerel Pate, served with toast, gherkins and a fresh side salad; perfect to warm you up on a chilly day.
Though we tend to reach for more comforting food choices in the colder months, we also get to dive back into the world of decadent coffees, rich hot chocolates and heart-warming teas. Though we don’t have any additions to our drink's menu, we do feel now is the time to try our ‘Choc-O-Lait' Hot chocolates; available in dark chocolate, milk chocolate or hazelnut. Why not indulge even more by adding whipped cream? Not forgetting our ‘Knights and Ladies’, we do serve our hot cholates and other drinks in a smaller size, as well as serving a comforting Babyccino with sprinkled chocolate on top!
So why don’t you come on into a tearoom, leave any troubles behind and treat yourself. You can try one of our new items or simply sit in the corner with a warm drink, read the paper and enjoy some well-deserved me time. We know you won’t leave disappointed.
