Given the choice of fruit or cherry scones, we went for the former. What arrived was a large, soft scone with a light dusting of icing sugar. It was rather ‘cakey’ for our liking and might have benefitted from being warmed.
A small ramekin of golden Rodda’s clotted cream in a good quantity for the two open halves of scone.
A small supply of raspberry jam served in a glass jar.
A small ceramic teapot of Twinings bagged tea. A usual, we chose our favouite Lapsang Souchong which was good. They also have a selection of loose leaf teas available as well.
AMBIENCE & SERVICE
Capabilitea Tea Rooms describe themselves as ‘shabby chic’. Their mis-matched crockery was clean and all of the staff were very friendly. We especially enjoyed reading the sign explaining why they call people ‘duck’ in these parts, but were glad they didn’t, as we waddled out of the door.
