Afternoon Tea at The Courtyard Restaurant, Elveden Estate, Suffolk. October 2015

image002-3 (1)This week Steve and I took advantage of the late Autumn sunshine and had a drive out in Tilly to Thetford Forest, where we stopped at the Courtyard Restaurant, Elveden, to enjoy a splendid Afternoon Tea.

We enjoyed a day out in Steve’s camper van called Tilly.

The Afternoon Tea at the Courtyard Restaurant included a selection of sandwiches, with both cheese and fruit scones, an assortment of cakes, and a dessert served on a traditional three tier cake stand. It was exceptionally good value at £22 for two people, including a pot of tea.

The top tier had a delectable selection of mini cakes and pastries, and a micro-dessert of chocolate mousse topped with cream. Yum!

We ate freshly made finger sandwiches with Egg mayo and cress, Smoked salmon and creme fraiche, Mature cheese and Victorian chutney, and Gammon and red onion marmalade fillings. We both thought the Elveden in-house smoked salmon was the best we had ever tasted.

The middle tier contained warm homemade cheese scones with butter, and fruit scones with Elvedon jam, and clotted cream.
