On their menu, Dillon’s offer a set cream tea which includes a single fruit scone which are all baked on the premises daily. It was medium sized and although unwarmed, was fresh and very enjoyable.
Whilst a selection of loose leaf teas were available on the menu, the cream tea was served with a designated Yorkshire Gold which provided a sturdy brew.
The menu had suggested a choice of preserves with the cream tea, but we were not asked for a preference and we didn’t make a specific request, so we were given a 28g jar of Tiptree Strawberry which was fine.
The ‘Jersey clotted cream’ was served in a white square dish and was a generous quantity for one scone.
