Not one to miss out on a new place in town I visited The Richmond Tea Rooms today to discover the wonderland of tea and cakes.
I defy anyone who doesn’t walk into this place and break out in a smile. It’s a treasure trove of loveliness and as we entered I found it hard to walk past the beautiful display of cakes to my seat.
Every detail is beautifully thought from the table decorations to the vintage tea cups with its “Tim Burton inspired design” making it a real haven from the village back streets.
I ordered a Scottish Breakfast Tea and the Cheese and Onion Pie from the specials board. The tea was very nice, served in a tea pot and using traditional loose tea. The pie was everything I could have hoped for; great homemade pastry with a velvety cheese filling (I find cheese and onion pie hard to master, having attempted it myself and failed miserably, so I take my hat off to them).
