An old friend and a new tearoom, what a perfect combination!
A week or so ago, I ventured to another new tearoom. This one was actually a bit further out than I usually go, which was sometimes exactly what I need to just get away from it all.
The tearoom was called ‘D’Oyly’s‘, a small family run tearoom and it just oozed country kitchen charm.
On this particular trip, I was mortifyingly 20 minutes late 😮
Thankfully I received a message from my friend informing me she was safely tucked in front of a roaring fire. Excellent news. Once I arrived I was blown away with the charm of the place, from the wreath on the door, the roaring fire, the plates on the shelf and the Royal Albert china on the table. Absolutely wonderful.
We both decided to sample the afternoon tea menu, as it was only £9.95. A bargain. When it arrived, we quite surprised to find mini scones instead of the usual giant scones you get but after consuming all the food it turned out the petite scones were just perfect. And instead of feeling overstuffed and ridiculously decadent, we felt satisfied and happy.
A win all around I think! The place had some absolutely beautiful decorations and just felt so homely. I loved this little white tree…
…and my friend adored this tree (it had lots of sparkly lights in it, if you can’t tell!).
Overall I give this tearoom a 9 out of 10 and only 1 down because I would have preferred a more vintage looking cake stand!
This tearoom is well worth a visit, if you are ever in the area of Yorkshire (UK). It even has a B&B attached to it.
P.S If you go, make sure you visit the bathroom and let me know what you think of what’s in there!
