If you are coming without children, the inside room is much more charming with wooden tables and flowered cloths but the plastic chairs and cloths were perfect for us. The menu is not geared for children; there is a five-dollar-per-head charge and no children’s menu. Kasey had a slightly hysterical look on her face as the boys did their usual arguing, jumping, and generally being boys. I told her to relax and let me order. No, they do not count the kids in the five-dollar-per-head count, just as I expected. I ordered five cream teas. This included a scone with jelly and cream, tea sandwiches, and sweets. Everyone ordered his or her drinks separately. I was especially proud of 16-year-old Danny when he asked about the Assam and decided to try it. Hot chocolate for the Hooligans, English Breakfast and Earl Grey for the rest of us, and the hardest part was over.
The five cream teas turned out to be just the perfect amount of food. The little boys had cream cheese and ham sandwiches, followed by, as 2-year-old Josh kept saying, "cake, cake, cake... chocolate." There were plenty of sandwiches, with the addition of the cucumber ones, for all of us to eat our fill. With five teas, we had five scones, and I knew the little ones wouldn’t want to eat a scone after they saw the cake. There were several choices among the cakes: lemon bars, a cheese and nut cake, and of course, the infamous chocolate. It was all very fresh and delicious.
We each had a pot of tea that gave us at least four cups of the steaming brew. Service was exceptional, and we had a fabulous time, thus proving that even the Hooligans can be civilized by a cuppa.
