Cream tea

Whilst in Devon I visited Broadway House in Topsham for an amazing cream tea.

I went for the Full Cream Tea (my companions wussed out and only had the Mini Cream Tea) which meant I had two scones. The scones were served slightly warm and when slathered in clotted cream and amazing strawberry jam I was in heaven.

The tea-room is very traditional and obviously staunchly protective of the way things are done. And I agree, why mess with perfection?

It was a quintessentially English expereince: sitting in the walled garden of an old English home in the warm late summer sunshine eating scones and drinking tea. "Perfick!" as Pop Larkin would say.
