While on a day trip out to Bakewell we popped into The Lavender Tea Rooms for a spot of tea and cake.
It is centrally located in Hebden Court, in a charming courtyard setting. The decor is period and you feel like you have stepped back in time to a bygone era when you step inside the tea room. It’s set over two floors with a lovely outside little courtyard with a few tables which have blankets on chairs in case the temperature drops. Dogs are also welcome in the courtyard area and they provide water bowls so your canine companion can enjoy a little refreshment too.
They offer an Afternoon Tea Deluxe, an extra special treat which consists of a pot of tea or cup of coffee, sandwiches with the choice of tasty fillings, a sultana scone, strawberry preserve and Rodda’s clotted cream, Bakewell Tart and a selection of cakes served on vintage five tier stands to add a touch of drama to the experience.
Other afternoon tea choices, starting with a pot of tea, a scone, jam and Roddas clotted cream, or a simple tea or coffee and a slice of one of their scrumptious which is what we had. The tea and cake was delicious and I am sure we will make another visit to The Lavender Tea Room next time we pop to Bakewell.
