On my last post an old friend of mine suggested I visit a small tearoom in York, known as ‘Me and Mrs Fisher’. A slightly strange name I grant you but I think that’s what caught my attention the most. Some people so unique that their name had to match their personalities! I loved the idea of it. So instead of going to the already planned tearoom, I yet again dragged my best friend to the above mentioned tearoom! And boy were we both glad I did…
I continue….To prepare you my tale of this wonderful treat, I shall I start with a picture of the view as we gracefully waltzed up to this tearoom…
Now really how gorgeous is that painted advert sign…a bit of famous icon in York actually. Everybody seems to know what you mean when you say ‘you know the big yellow painted sign thing’.
We definitely trundled up to this tearoom, my best friend and I and it was a sight for sore eyes! Absolutely perfect.
I can’t tell you how excited I was…eeeek!
They even had a Haberdashery counter. The picture on the right. It has all these lovely drawers that get shorter as they go up, so you can see all the wares.
Once we got over the excitement of how perfect it looked, we were met by some lovely staff, who suggested we eat outside as it was such a lovely day! (In hindsight perhaps it was a bit too hot for us!).
As it was a special treat day I went for a milkshake (they even added ice-cream in as special request!!!) and wasn’t it magnificent….
Jen decided to go for another Red Bush Tea and was much happier as it came in a vintage teacup.
Then onto the food choice and boy were there some good choices. Real food. I went for the freshly baked Leek, Potato and Cheese Pie and Jen has the Salmon Quiche. Both came with cous cous, salad, home-made coleslaw and a home-made carrot chutney. Absolutely stunning and both tasted amazing! Fabulous pricing as well, both dishes were under 7 pounds each.
Once we were done, we ventured back inside to have a look at all their home-made wares. Lots of cute stuff, I purchased an unusual wedding card which I loved. They also had a box of mismatched vintage crockery. Next time I’m definitely going to have to have a bit of a rummage and see what I can find.
As we wrapping up out amazing visit, they mentioned they had a “little” haberdashery upstairs…I mean c’mon how cute can this place get? It was fab, so unique. I will definitely be popping back to get some stuff. What better way to support a little business like this than getting to buy some stuff like this.
Just popping in a cheeky little mirror picture of my outfit for the day. I decided I should try and make a bit more of an effort on tearoom visit days! So here is my vintage-esk outfit!! What do you think?
Right well that’s all from our lovely visit to ‘Me and Mrs Fisher‘! The service was fantastic and friendly, the food was perfection and the tableware was brilliant. I really liked this place…can you tell?
I easily give it 4 and half stars! (Only because I think everyone should keep striving for perfection!)
See you soon x
