Stopped in at the tea room after a walk. I chose the egg custard tart which was the best i have ever had - really tasty and sliky texture with excellent pastry. Enjoyed it with a pot of tea sitting outside in the October sunshine.

Stopped for a cuppa on the way home and we each had a slice of Strawberry and Rhubarb cake, delicious! Warm enough to sit outside and watch the traffic plow through the ford.
