We had the last two scones of the day which were both plain and large. We enjoyed them, but they would have probably benefited from being warmed.
A paper cone of clotted cream each which was a generous amount for the scones.
A choice of strawberry, raspberry or apricot jam which came in a standard 28g Wilkin & Sons Tiptree jar. Unless the scones are oversized, we find these jars to be pretty much the optimum quantity for one scone in half.
Darjeeling, Early Grey and a selection of herbal teas were offered, so we chose the Earl Grey which came asTwining bags in a teapot.
AMBIENCE & SERVICE
Canteen-style self-service. The staff were friendly and the crockery and tableware was nice and clean. The Waterfront Cafe has a lovely aspect overlooking the River Thames. We sat inside, but could imagine in the Summer this was a beautiful spot to enjoy a meal, cakes or a cream tea.
