Darlingtons Tea Rooms

Heart of the Shires Shopping Village/Watling St, Northampton NN7 4LB

2 June 2019

The two sultana scones provided as standard by Darlingtons were delicious. Warmed and fresh, they had a pleasing crunch on the outside and a buttery soft inner.

The Cornish clotted cream was served in a small white dish. Unfortunately, the quantity of cream for the four open scone halves was insufficient.

The strawberry jam came in a metal dish and, as with the cream, was dispoportionate to the medium/large scones. We were also a little disappointed with the quality of the jam, which seemed lacking in fruit.

Darlingtons Tea Rooms don’t aim for the quality, speciality or loose-leaf tea market, but provide the basics well enough. Our choice of Earl Grey (bagged Twinings) was fine.

In addition to cakes and cream teas, the popular tearoom at The Heart of the Shires Shopping Village, also serve snacks and light meals. The tea was served a long time before the scones arrived, but the staff were friendly and accommodating and the white china and metal teapots and milk jug clean.

SCORE: 6.5/10 ~ Good
