Another cup of tea

pexels-photo-210470.jpegWe love a great cup of tea here at Vintage Rose Catering.  Depending on what you are eating should determine which blend and flavour of tea you drink, just like a good wine with a certain meal.

We can advice our guests what type of tea to drink with their afternoon tea if they wish.

Here is our simple guide based on the last 8 years of serving teas

To accompany our Lemon drizzle, Citrus loaf cakes, Orange cakes and all citrus bakes we usually choose Earl grey – a delicious blend of Bergamot and citrus undertones, it enhances every mouthful.

Whereas if you were enjoying a plain sponge say a madeira cake or an American pound cake a Darjeeling would be nice or a Breakfast blend.

Our afternoon tea blend is lovely alongside our carrot cakes or anything frosted and creamy based.

We stock over 15 regular teas and invite our visitors to taste these during their afternoon tea experience. As with a lot of things we often stick to a favourite but this is a great way of tasting new blends and enjoying ones that you wouldn’t necessarily have purchased before.

Sunday afternoons in The Tearoom

It was nearly a full house this afternoon for the first of our sunday afternoons with our resident pianist Robert.

We had a good turnout even though it was very dull and rather cold again.  But as usual it’s warm and cosy inside and the music played is a lovely mix for all ages.

We served our delicious afternoon teas, cream teas and some of you enjoyed our speciality festive drinks instead of our lovely tea

If you wish to relax after a busy Christmas shop any Sunday until and including December 21 join us at 2.00 p.m here at The Tearoom within Cliffe Park. Callywhite Lane.  Dronfield S18 2XP

If you wish to enjoy our afternoon tea please call before to book your place.  Otherwise turn up and enjoy anything off our cake table and drinks menu

You can be sure of a warm welcome

It’s that time of the year again

Christmas fast approaches.  Time to tell everyone you hold dear that they are loved.  Lots to do and organize.  Have you got the presents all done and wrapped or do you leave it till last minute and join the madness that is December Christmas present shopping.  Joining the queues of traffic jams waiting to get into the shopping centres or carrying bags full of presents back to the car; which seems to be parked further away now.

Do you surf and order everything on-line, whichever you do, try to enjoy the present buying.  A bit of me time afterwards is earned so get that glass and tipple and relax afterwards, boy you’ve earned it, you’ve been thoughtful and kind, all the things Santa says you should be!

We have been surfing around the net and have seen the following offers hope we can save you a little time and money in the meantime
