On Friday I decided I wanted to organise a little treat for us all on Saturday. Some of my mummy friends had talked about a place called J&L Vintage Tearooms so I had a look online and sent them a message about booking afternoon tea. I asked if they did gluten free afternoon tea which they did so I booked us in.
We arrived and were welcomed by Louise and Jill. We ordered two classic afternoon teas and a sandwich for Amelia. We both had a cup of tea served in pretty china teacups and a teapot. I ordered a salmon and cream cheese sandwich and Kelly got a tuna mayonnaise sandwich. We got a gluten free scone and a gluten free cupcake each. I wasn’t expecting mine to be gluten free too but I was glad I did as they were so tasty! Other gluten free cake we have had before has been dense and dry but these were lovely and light.
Amelia did a rubbish job of eating her sandwiches and was far more interested in what we had to offer! She was well and truly spoilt and her cuteness won her some chocolate buttons from Jill.
The tearooms are well equipped for children and have my favourite Ikea high chairs. Amelia is so dinky that other types of high chairs don’t give her enough support and I love it when we find somewhere that has them. There were loads of toys to keep her amused and Amelia spent a lot of the time on the floor playing with Jill and her daughter who is also called Amelia! We kept joking that we would leave Amelia there and go and do our shopping, they were so good with her. We had a great afternoon at J&L Vintage Tearooms and highly recommend it, we will definitely be back!
