Welcome to another guest post from Tea With Me and Friends - this time we are keeping it in the family as our cousin Neil and his wife Jenny share their recent visit to Mrs Smith's Tea Room in Banstead with us. Neil is very lucky - he won this afternoon tea in a recent competition run by the tea room.
Mrs Smith's Tea Room opened in 2010 and offers a whole range of foods, including Homemade cakes, Freshly Made Sandwiches, Homemade Soup and Baked Potatoes. Also opening soon is a tapas bar. I know Neil likes a spot of afternoon tea though and was keen to find out what he thought of his latest tea adventure....
The tearoom itself offers guests seating both inside and outside....

The afternoon tea at Mrs Smith's consists of a pot of tea, a selection of finger sandwiches, scones served with cream and jam and a cake selection. The portions are generous in size and according to Neil very tasty too.....

In fact the portions were so generous (did you see the size of those scones??) that Neil needed a doggy bag to take some of his tea home with him! Neil commented that the tearoom offers guests a pleasant environment to enjoy their tea in, and the staff were all very friendly.
Let's take a closer look at those rather scrummy scones....I am pleased to note that there appears to be a nice amount of fruit in there.....

All in all Neil thoroughly enjoyed his afternoon tea experience at Mrs Smith's and would recommend it for anyone looking for a local tea experience. The tea room is open five days a week, for more information visit their Facebook page.
