Chapter House, St Albans Abbey, Hertfordshire, AL1 1BY
Sunday 3rd April 2016
Given the choice of fruit or plain scones, we opted for one of each. They were both medium-sized, fresh and light. The plain scone was soft and a little ‘cakey’, whilst the sultana one had more of a light crust.
The clotted cream was served in a pre-opened 40g Roddas plastic carton.
A good choice of Tiptree 28g jars of jam, so we selected one strawberry and one blackcurrant.
A small selection of black and herbal teas bags were offered. We chose the Earl Grey which was served in a stainless steel teapot.
AMBIENCE & SERVICE
The attractive Abbot’s Kitchen, located in the Chapter House of St Albans Abbey, is a popular cafe frequented by locals and visitors alike. It’s canteen style, so for a cream tea you choose the components yourself at the counter. The staff were friendly and the featured mismatched crockery clean.
