Mam and I have been meaning to go to St Mary's for over a year now so I am delighted to say we have finally been.
We were seated at a huge table that was set for Afternoon tea.
Put our order in for 2 peppermint teas and 2 breakfast teas.
I was happy to see it was Rington's tea, a brilliant local company.
At this point we were starving, I had serious runger which is hunger pangs you get after running. It's completely made up but something I believe is true. I wish my Mam took a photo of my face when our afternoon tea arrived.
My face must have looked similar to a child's on Christmas morning. Two tiers of absolutely deliciousness.
The sandwiches were, tuna mayonnaise, ham and pease pudding, roast beef and horseradish and Arlington egg mayonnaise. They were all incredible and if I had to pick a favourite I would have to choose them all.
The scones were something else, plain, spiced fruit and blackberry and Keens cheddar cheese. Hands down, the cheese was my favourite and I managed to get two (my grandma didn't eat hers).
Now on to the cakes, chocolate and orange macaroon, chocolate brownie, lemon sponge with a cream cheese frosting and with a doubt the best rhubarb sundae.
Afternoon tea cost £14.95 and the tea was refillable.
I even got to make a new friend, he didn't say much though. Just going through the photos on this blog post is making me so hungry. I honestly can't recommend afternoon tea at St Mary's inn enough. I'm 100% planning on going back, but next time I think I really want to try Sunday lunch.
Have you visited St Mary's inn yet?
