Welcome back to Tea With Me and Friends - I hope you are well today.
Last weekend Alex and I decided to visit another local garden centre in the Farnham area to try their afternoon tea. For this afternoon tea adventure we decided to pay Frensham Garden Centres a visit, as they have a tea room and restaurant located outside with the plants....
When we arrived at the tea room we were shown to a corner table that had been reserved for us and we were asked what we wanted to drink before the afternoon tea stand was brought out. The afternoon tea consists of a stand featuring sandwiches, scones and cakes for two and your choice of a cup of coffee or a pot of tea.
When I called to book the tea I was asked if I had a sandwich filling preference, and I opted to go with the standard fillings that are served - this included:
The sandwiches were all fresh, crustless and well filled. I also liked the addition of fresh cherry tomato and rocket.
Next we moved onto the scones. There were two large scones on the stand, which were served with clotted cream and preserve....
Alex was very pleased to see that we each had a pot of cream!
The scones looked rather "robust", but when we cut into them they were baked well and not too tough! We had two pots of jam, one strawberry and one raspberry.
Finally we moved onto the selection of cakes and pastries....
We were spoilt for choice with the selection, which included a piece of Victoria sponge, a piece of lemon drizzle cake, an eclair and a millefeuille.
All the cakes were fresh and tasty, but the lemon drizzle was my favourite, which full of flavour.
All in all this was a scrummy afternoon tea.
You didn't get any additional food or drink refills - but at £19.95 for two this is great value. Everything was fresh and tasty and we didn't leave hungry!
As this is a small garden centre tea room you need to call in advance and book a table if you want to enjoy the full afternoon tea experience. Otherwise you can just pop by and enjoy a piece of cake from the selection on offer.
Do you have a local garden centre or tea room that offers a brilliant afternoon tea? We'd love to hear from you if have - please drop us a line!
Thank you for popping by today,
