For my mum’s birthday, my sister and I decided to treat her to a cream tea at Harpur and Finch – and what a treat it was!
The four of us (me, my sister, my mum and grandma) sat down ready for our cream tea, with high expectations. Firstly, the setting was gorgeous, very cute and cosy; and secondly the counter was filled with delicious looking cakes!
Even though I’d pre-arranged a dairy-free (due to breastfeeding issues) cream tea over the phone and they’d been more than accommodating, I remained slightly dubious as to what to expect. But, I needn’t have worried… just take a look at what I got (all to myself!)
Peanut butter, mushroom pate and vegan cheese sandwiches; a dairy-free scone and jam; a dairy-free chocolate brownie and scrumptious fruit. I was not disappointed or suffering with food envy (as I thought I would). It’s fair to say that none of use were disappointed – and I’m not sure we could have fitted any more cake onto the table!
To top off a lovely afternoon, the waiters serenaded my mum with a rendition of Happy Birthday, accompanied by (yet another) cake.
A great afternoon was had by all, and at only £12.50 each, it was a treat in every respect. I’d highly recommend a trip to Harpur and Finch – I’ll certainly be back!
