I absolutely love the idea of supper clubs and secret restaurants. Eating tasty food for a reasonable price and the social side of it makes me really excited. Therefore I just could not wait to go to one of them and my first choice was actually a secret tearoom, mainly because it was in reasonable driving distance but also because I loved the pictures of this place when I first discovered it on-line.
Last Sunday we went to The Secret Teacup situated in one of the farms nr Clapham in Yorkshire Dales National Park. It offers traditional afternoon tea in beautiful surroundings. The hostess of this place is also an author of the beautiful blog Tales of Ted and Agnes.
She makes sure everyone feels welcomed; selection of tea she offers is very interesting, the food she serves it mouth watering. If you love real fire in the stove, good food, warm, homely atmosphere and want to see incredible collection of mismatched china this is the right address.
I love spending time with people who have such a passion for baking, dreaming up menus, and dressing up the tables so I definately went to the right place. It was very tasty afternoon indeed! Here is the menu and I will let the photos speak for themselves.
Potted salmon with Rocket
Egg Mayonnaise & Red Cress
Cheese & Homemade Pickle
Goats Cheese & Onion tartlets
3 Cheese twists
Lemon & Lime Drizzle Cake
Sticky Maple Buns
Hedgerow Tea Loaf
Scones with Cream & Jam
P.S. On the social side it was a little bit let down - 5 people calcelled their bookings just before the meeting, (naughty!) however I still managed to meet very nice bloger, an author of Kat got the cream blog.
