Reminicing about yesterdays delightful afternoon tea at Judges Country House, Kirklevington. This was an extra special visit to celebrate my daughters and my birthday, which falls on the same day in September. Upon arrival at the stunning country house, surrounded by lush greenery, we were whisked into the Great Hall, where afternoon tea is served. From the moment we stepped into Judges, we were greeted with kindness and exceptional service. The smartly dressed staff offered impecable service, making us feel at ease and relaxed. Whilst admiring the surroundings my attention was turned to the beautiful christmas carols, sung by Judy Garland, evoking a timeless, nostalgic vibe.... very appropriate for our beautiful setting.
The afternoon tea itself was from a choice of three, guests are able to choose from these three options: ours was the traditional tea. There was a selection of freshly made sandwiches which ranged from: smoked salmon, cucumber, roast beef, egg mayonaise and cheese savory. These were complemented by a fine selection of homemade cakes: chocolate brownie, lemon meringue, carrot cake and raspberry mousse. Finally, a choice of scone.... fruit or plain. We opted for both. This was presented with thick clotted cream and a home-made strawberry jam.
I have to say that this was the most perfect way to spend a delightful christmas afternoon with my daughter.
