SCONES
Both sultana and cheese scones were on offer at the counter in The Manders’ Tearoom. Not surprisingly, we selected the fruit variety for our cream tea. It was a large, solid scone with plenty of sultanas and a floury dusting. As is often the case, it was nice, but might have been improved if warmed.

CREAM
A standard 40g plastic pot of Rodda’s clotted cream. Unfortunately, it was slightly too cold and as a result was almost as crumbly as it was creamy.

JAM
A good selection (strawberry, rasberry, apricot & blackcurrant) of Tiptree 28g jars of jam. We chose blackcurrant for a change and really enjoyed it!

TEA
None of our favourite Lapsang Souchong, but we really enjoyed the Taylor’s of Harrogate Earl Grey bags served in a pretty white china teapot.

AMBIENCE & SERVICE
The Manders’ Tea Room at the National Trust’s Wightwick Manor is self-service, so you select how many scones etc. you want at the counter. The staff were polite and we really liked white Dudson china.

Score 7/10
