Every so often I arrange to have a tearoom lunch with my Aunt and Uncle. Thankfully they both have the same appreciation for visiting tearooms as I, so we try to go somewhere new each time. This time is was The Ramblers Rest – Millington, East Yorkshire.
The trip was long overdue as we had been hoping to go early in the year but some recent events delayed our visit. So this place is really near my home, so of course I got lost because I stupidly believed I didn’t need to look at a map properly before I left. I eventually arrived half an hour late. My poor family!
As soon as I arrived, I ordered an early grey to relieve the stress of being lost. The tearoom is set out in a small village, near some woods. So many walkers and cyclists frequent this venue.
Good tea but the teapot was quite short, so therefore was difficult to pour and I spilt some onto the table. (not my fault obviously :p). After a bit of catching up, I decided on some sauteed veggies with goats cheese and red onion marmalade on a bloomer with salad and coleslaw. It was delicious. It was made fresh and you could really tell. My aunt had the vegetable soup and my uncle bacon and brie…I think..oh dear…perhaps some pictures here will help:
How much butter does someone need for one roll?
Even though lunch was super filling, my aunt and I decided to both go for some cake. My choice was the ramblers retreat bakewell cake with custard and my aunt had the Victoria sponge. The portions was huge and absolutely mouthwateringly tasty. I just couldn’t finish it all.
The tearoom had a very country feel to it, with lots of wood furniture and homely touches. There was even a fireplace, unfortunately all my pictures of it are a bit blurry but here a few of the tearoom.
I give this place 8 out of 10!
The tearoom was well done, the bathrooms were ace, the service was generally good (though a little slow at points), the food was amazing and the company fantastic.
