Afternoon Tea at The White Horse, Romsey

Afternoon Tea is a beautifully british tradition, and one that I always enjoy! So, on a drizzly Sunday we headed over to Romsey to enjoy an afternoon of tea, sandwiches and cakes with the company of some of my favourite ladies.

One of which is Emily (pictured below in her fabulous dress!) – you can find her blog here.

We followed the signs to The White Horse Romsey, through their beautiful courtyard and into a cosy sitting room for our tea.

We took our seats on four large, squishy armchairs and settled in with a cup of tea each. There’s really nothing better than a cosy seat and a cup of tea when it’s raining outside!

Bex (see her blog here) and I opted for Earl Grey with lemon – a classic. It was a welcome cup of tea when we were feeling a little bit damp!

We were also treated to a cocktail (or mocktail) each, to add the tipsy into our afternoon tea. I had a cranberry fizz (as I was driving) and we couldn’t stop chatting away!

A platter of finger sandwiches soon arrived, with smoked trout, egg mayonnaise, ham and cucumber. Delicious! Especially the trout and the ham.

Next up were the cakes – and we all know that the best thing about an afternoon tea is the scones! Smothered in jam and clotted cream….

We did encounter a small amount of controversy with the proper way in which one should eat a scone. Jam first, or cream first? The ultimate British debate… let me know your thoughts!

Clearly I was feeling quite satisfied with my cakes and scones!

We even had a few to take home with us.
