The Bridge Tea Room
Many years ago, in one of my visits, I was taken to the beautiful town of Bradford on Avon, and there I got taken for lunch to this gorgeous tea room.
Back then I thought "what a cute little place to have a meal".
Since then I have returned quite often, experienced other tea rooms and realized this is one of my favourites! Not that I have a major list of favourite tea rooms, I don´t. I have 2 favourites, and this is one of them.
And it is not to be taken lightly, they are DOUBLE winners of the UK´s Tea Place and the Home of West Country Afternoon Teas.
It is a very old construction, that used to be a blacksmith´s cottage from 1502, that seems to be beautifully falling apart with skew walls and tilted floors, delicate bone china, a warm fireplace, Victorian decoration, classical music in the background, and extremely friendly staff dressed in Victorian costumes.
As a typical tea room, they serve decadent home made cakes, pastries, sandwiches and flavourful teas. They also do amazing food even though is not exactly their focus.
This awesome place is called The Bridge Tea Room and Restaurant, and you can check it out in this link.
So what do you think of this place?
Do you like tea rooms?
Leave me a comment letting me know.
