A couple of weekends ago, Dave’s mum was up and we took her for Afternoon Tea at Prestonfield House as a birthday present. Prestonfield House is actually really near where we stay, but we’d never been! It was a great day for walking around the grounds and trying to sneak photos of the peacocks! The interiors are all dark read, which I wasn’t really sure I would like from photos I’d seen (and actually doesn’t come through amazingly well in my photos either), but it was beautiful in real life! So rich and every surface was decorated differently!
The food was delicious as was the tea – I think we’ve been neglecting tea for coffee too much, spending a fortune on coffee beans but drinking Asda own brand tea, I think we need to redress the balance! As always, it didn’t seem like a lot of food, but I was SO FULL at the end of it, and that was with us sharing three portions between the five of us! I had also been pretty worried we were making a mistake taking our kidlets to a posh restaurant, but amazingly they were really well behaved and there was also lots of pother people with kids, so didn’t feel out of place at all.
