Today my other half took me to a tearoom called ‘The Old House Tearoom‘. This tearoom is set in the rolling hills of the wonderful peak district. We were treated to some fantastic views, as you can see below.
It seemed fairly quiet when we arrived at lunchtime but on reflection it was actually quite nice for it not to be too busy. We enjoyed the peace and quiet. This tearoom is attached to a B&B, which seemed like a perfect place to take a break. Out in the peak district but close enough to places such as Manchester for some big city trips.
The menu was fairly simple, but sometimes I find that is just perfect. We both decided to try the soup when we found out it was home-made butternut squash soup.
I thought the soup was delicious, perfect for a fairly breezy day. However we both agreed the bread roll didn’t taste quite right, and perhaps could have been warmed up to give it that bit extra.
My other half ordered this scrummy looking hot chocolate, which came with marshmallows and cream for just an extra 40p for both, sometime you forget how overpriced a chain coffee shop can be. All the food and drinks here seemed very reasonably priced. Our meals and drinks only cost about £11 in total. I ordered Early Grey, as per usual. Both drinks came in plain white cups, which is a bit of a change from my usual dainty teacups but as long as they are in good order, I’m fine with them. Thankfully, they were!
This little tearoom was a sweet place with some good food, great prices and some peaceful surroundings. I felt they could have done a little more with the tearoom itself, add a bit more of charm considering their surrounding. However, the surroundings themselves actually made up for a lot of what wasn’t in the tearoom.
7 out of 10 for this tearoom.
