Time for Tea....Godalming Vintage Tea Parties

Hello there,

Welcome back to Tea With Me and Friends - we hope you're having tea-riffic weekend!

Last weekend Becca and I decided to pop by the  Home & Vintage Spring Brocante at Grayswood Village Hall in Surrey. I love vintage things nearly as much as I love afternoon tea.....so the opportunity to explore a new (to us) vintage fair is always a good thing! As we wondered around the various stalls we noticed a little sign pointing up to a tearoom.....this day was getting better and better!

Upstairs we discovered a pop-up tea room, which was being run by the ladies of Godalming Vintage Tea Parties - a catering company who put on vintage style tea parties.

Godalming Vintage Tea Parties create a quintessentially English tea time celebration with their delicious homemade sandwiches, scones, cakes and tea - all served on vintage china.

By the time we arrived at the tea room it was later in the afternoon and visitors to the tea room had been enjoying tea and cake all day....this meant that the lovely tea table wasn't as full as it normally is....however, there was still a great selection of treats to enjoy including chocolate cake, chili brownies, scones and carrot cake....

As to be expected at a vintage style tea room - there was plenty of vintage china to enjoy those scrummy cakes and tea on....just look at all those teacups.....

After lots of drooling over the cakes while we made up our minds what we wanted to indulge in, Becca opted for a gooey chili chocolate brownie and I decided to go for a scone with clotted cream and jam. And of course we needed tea....lots of tea...to wash it all down!

The ladies helped us to our treats over to the table....

This feast costs us just £5.00, which I thought was excellent value.....just look at the size of the portions (especially the scone!!). I think we managed to get six cups of tea out of that teapot too!

Let's start with Becca's sweet treat - the chili chocolate brownie...

This was rich, gooey and generous in size. The chili heat reminded me more of ginger than chili, but was extremely scrummy and went down well with a cup of tea.

My scone was HUGE....

I probably would have liked just a little bit more clotted cream with the scone as it was so big, but overall it made a lovely cream tea. The scone was firm in texture, but not claggy, it worked well with the clotted cream and strawberry jam.

The tea room was friendly and had a very pleasant atmosphere, vintage style music filled the air as we enjoyed our tea. The ladies of Godalming Vintage Tea Parties were friendly and professional. I imagine a personalised tea party put on by them would be great fun!

Here is the full table at the beginning of the day....

To find out more about Godalming Vintage Tea Parties pop by their Facebook page - and if you have a tea party with them we'd love to hear all about it.

Thank you for popping by today,
