SCONES
As we had the choice of plain or fruit scones we chose… one of each. Both were of a medium size and were warm and fresh, but actually they were very different in shape, texture and and flavour. The fruit scone was the flatter of the two and had plenty of fruit and a hint of sugar coating on top. The plain variety however, was taller and was softer in texture. We enjoyed both.

CREAM
One regular tub of Roddas clotted cream per scone which is a good amount for open scone halves. We were very happy with the quality and quantity for the size of the scones.

JAM
A standard 28g jar of Tiptree strawberry jam, which as per the cream was a good amount.

TEA
They didn’t have our favourite Lapsang and the Earl Grey which initially came didn’t taste or even look like Earl Grey, but the staff quickly replaced the bags with a nice loose leaf Earl Grey instead which was great.

AMBIENCE & SERVICE
We really liked The Georgian Tearooms. It was immaculately clean and the staff were all charming. The ‘Lord Nelson Cream Tea’ which we chose was admirable and the scone/cream/jam (Ho)ratio was perfect 🙂

Score: 8/10
