Afternoon Tea for Three

Afternoon Tea The King's Head Richmond North YorkshireAfternoon Tea The King's Head Richmond North YorkshireAfternoon Tea The King's Head Richmond North Yorkshire At the weekend, it was my Nan’s 84th birthday. Mum and I decided she was in need of a treat and so whisked her out for afternoon tea.  We opted for the King’s Head Hotel in Richmond as it’s nice and local for the birthday girl.

Upon arrival, we were shown to our table next to the open fireplace and were greeted with a glass of Prosecco.  Originally a Georgian townhouse, the hotel’s lounge looks out onto the cobbled marketplace.  I really loved the cosy atmosphere and period details.

As our Prosecco was going down nicely, the food was brought over.  The afternoon tea itself was very traditional; finger sandwiches, scones with jam and lemon cream (my favourite part, by far), followed by a selection of mini cakes.  I feel that the time-honoured trio suited both the location and occasion; however it may have left afternoon tea aficionados feeling a little disappointed. 

All in all, it went down well and got the seal of approval from the birthday girl who shed a few tears of surprise!  It was really lovely to do something different.  Now to plan the 85th birthday surprise…!
