Scrummy Teas at Westcroft

I enjoy baking cakes and usually offer a wide selection such as Marmalade and Pecan Loaf, Coconut and Lime, Old-fashioned Gingerbread and Honey cakes, along with favourites such as Cherry Cake, Lemon Drizzle and the always popular Coffee and Chocolate Victoria Sandwiches. Or perhaps flapjacks (gluten free), shortbread and chocolate chip cookies for a morning option.

My chickens give me fresh eggs, my bees give me honey and I make my own marmalade, curds, jams, chutneys and elderflower cordial. In the colder months soup is available. There are plenty of seating areas in the garden, in sun and shade to enjoy your scrummy tea. In bad weather or in the freezing cold in February you could sit inside around the Aga! Cost £1.50 Scrummy tea and cake. Cake to take home, whilst stocks last £1 per slice.
