Time for Tea.....The French Tarte

Hello there,

I hope you are keeping well.

At the end of last year Lorna was treated to a lovely afternoon tea for her Birthday at The French Tarte in Surbiton. Now you may be wondering why we didn't share this post with you in December when Lorna, her hubby Jim and both their mums enjoyed this tea. Well, we have a very good reason......they liked the look of their afternoon feast so much when it arrived at the table that they forgot to take any photos until it was too late!

The French Tarte is located on Maple Road in Surbiton, Surrey and is a small bakery offering baked goods to eat in or take away. I have indulged in some of their treats myself and can vouch for their scrummy cakes, breads and pastries - all baked on site.

Afternoon tea is served on the weekends at the French Tarte, and although the tea menu is not that extensive there is something for everyone with black, green, white and herbal teas on offer. I am pleased to report that teas are served in pretty vintage teacups - here is Lorna's teacup......

The afternoon tea menu includes a selection of savoury open sandwiches, warm scones served with clotted cream and strawberry jam and a selection of mini cakes. According to Lorna everything was rather scrummy....in fact here is the "after" photo.....

Always a good sign at the end of an afternoon tea....
As the French Tarte knew it was Lorna's Birthday, the tea included a personalised Happy Birthday plate....

Although there are no actual photos of the afternoon tea that Lorna enjoyed, she has assured me that it was a very good tea and has suggested that we revisit them so I can take some photos!

At £14.50 per person this is a good value afternoon tea, if you'd like a glass of champagne with your tea it will cost you £22.50 per person.

Have you enjoyed afternoon tea at The French Tarte? Do you have any photos to share with us? If so please get in touch!

Thank you for popping by today,
Rachel & Lorna
