On the drive up to Leeds festival, Terri and I stopped off in the beautiful city of York for a spot of afternoon tea at Bettys tea room, so I thought I’d do a short review. We were lucky that we had a table booked in the Belmont Room as the downstairs cafe looked pretty busy! The Belmont Room upstairs was pleasant enough; a large airy room with a live pianist playing throughout the afternoon. It lacked in atmosphere slightly and…

I was recently contacted by Parkdean Holidays to ask if I would like to sample some traditional locally sourced goodies from Cornwall.. of course I said ‘yes please’! As you all probably know by now, I’m quite the afternoon tea lover and I’m partial to a bit of cake and a scone now and again, so obviously I jumped at the chance.

My lovely Dad took me for afternoon tea as I was feeling a little bit sorry for myself. We had been for afternoon tea in Stratford Upon Avon a few times previously – we had been to The Grosvenor Hotel but fancied a change this time. I’d heard about afternoon tea at The Fourteas on…

A couple of weekends ago I was invited to a really exciting blogger event! I don’t often go to many blogger events as they are almost always in London; but this one was worth attending! Luckily it was on a Saturday afternoon and as London is only a short train ride away I went to the big city for the day and met up with Terri at Euston.  We were invited by Rennie and the event was held on a vintage…
