Going to Bolton Abbey took me right back to my childhood days, where happy outings were spent with the family with picnics in tow. The most memorable part, apart from the delicious food, was always the stepping stones of Bolton Abbey. They were one of the fun highlights of Bolton Abbey. This time round, the stepping stones were not attempted and they seemed slightly smaller than my memory recalled.
A sunny fun day, with ice cream in hand, was spent walking around the beautiful area, exploring the huge abbey, taking in the pretty landscapes and even meeting a komodo dragon. But then a sit down and a fitting treat gave us some rest.
Tea on the Green was just the type of place we were looking for. There was some seating outdoors but as it felt a bit of a chilly day, we opted for a table inside. The decor was cute with vibrant purple flowers on the tables and various food and gifts being showcased on the dressers.
All of the cakes at Tea on the Green were covered on display. If we had got there a bit earlier, we would have been able to have the hot sandwiches, paninis and soups. But we saw our lateness as a bit of a blessing in disguise as we simply got to indulge our sweet tooth.
From the variety of cakes at Tea on the Green, the lime and courgette cake sounded different. A lovely wedge of the cake was served. The slight tang and sharpness of the lime complemented the sweetness of the moist cake. The courgette couldn’t be tasted but the green flecks made it look pretty.
It had to be the classic scones with the clotted cream and jam for our second treat. The fruit scone was of a big size and it was served with the Rodda’s clotted cream and jam coming in individual portions. A hot drink accompanied the afternoon delights. The latte was good coffee with its creaminess.
Tea on the Green provided us a wonderful place to enjoy a rest. The staff were friendly and gave us great service. This lovely cafe at Bolton Abbey makes for a great place to relax.
