Returning from a nice if somewhat windblown walk during lunch break I found myself craving a cream tea, which reminded me of our last visit of Peacock’s Tearoom where I had lunch followed by a scone with clotted cream and strawberry preserve 🙂 I’m very fond of that memory as we just took the time on a day off to drive to Ely to have lunch there.
Having said that another experience just came back. When we were last visiting Edinburgh we went to this cosy tearoom right after visiting the Palace of Holyroodhouse to sate my hunger for a cream tea and they had shockingly run out of scones! I was asked if I wanted to give the rock cake a try instead as they are similar. I agreed to the experiment and discovered that rock cakes look somewhat rocky, taste like fruit scones and are bigger than scones 🙂 In Sally’s words: “Hmmmmm, scrumptious!”
