Mother’s Day | Tea At Badger’s

Happy Mothering Sunday! Yesterday I took my mum for afternoon tea in Alfriston to a traditional teahouse called Badgers

There’s nothing quite like freshly baked scones with earl grey tea brewing in a traditional china tea set, is there? Oh, how very British!  


Mum showing us her excellent tea-pouring skills, if ever there was such a thing.


Tea verdict – it’s a good’un! 

(Noticed the bump? I have a brother or sister on the way!)


On our silver tiered stand we had two freshly baked scones with  local clotted cream and jam, smoked salmon and egg and cress sandwiches, a bloody big slice of gooseberry jam sponge cake and a Molly cake for me, which was a gluten free fruit cake – the ‘healthier’ option!

 

The scones were even more delicious than they look. I haven’t had a scone for a long time (this was obviously a cheat day) and I have to say I enjoyed every bite!

After our tea and cake we pottered around the small village drifting in and out of quaint jewellery shops and gift shops, peering into low beamed, dark windows. Alfriston, with the low ceilings and narrow cobbled streets is a bit like stepping back in time.

Mother’s Day is a day to spend some quality time with our wonderful mothers, to show them just how much they mean to us. How did you treat your mums today? I hope they’ve been spoiled rotten!
