Last year I was lucky enough to go to the Forest Side for lunch. https://adventuresofcumbrianblondie.co.uk/2016/10/10/a-new-star-is-born-forestside/It was amazing and a few weeks after our visit, they were awarded their first Michelin star. I had seen pictures of their afternoon tea and it went on my never ending list of places to eat.
After having words about the lack of flowers from my husband. You know the conversation, a jokey comment turns into something less jokey. The next day I got a text and it said “Forest Side booked for afternoon tea, think you’ll find that trumps flowers” he’s right it does. This action came with comments and groans from male friends at this smooth action from Mr P.
Afternoon Tea is a tea-related ritual, introduced in Britain in the early 1840s. It evolved as a mini meal to stem the hunger and anticipation of an evening meal at 8pm.
Afternoon tea was taken in the lounge. As we were first there, had the choice of where to sit, of course it had to be the window seat. I just love everything about the place, the decor is beautiful and I sank into the wonderful velour armchair.
