All this and quiche.

For lovers of teashops and cafes. How’s this one? It’s in the old kitchens of Chillingham Castle in Northumberland. In June I had superb quiche with trimmings – I’ll be there again in September.

  1. The deco of this tea house is unique. I can almost smell its ambience and fragrance of tea. Are those candles or some kind of fairy lights? Such a nostalgic place.

    You’ve a magnificent background and header for this blog and they complement each other very well. I’ll be coming back here often to read more of your posts.

      That cafe lighting is electric nowadays – but it feels candle-lit.
      I’ve been to Nunnington Hall today (between Pickering and York). I was saddened to see the tiger skins and antelope trophy heads on the wall of the entrance hall – the faded and dusty residue of idle and soft hands.
      The rest of the house and grounds are lovely.
