A month ago, my Mum saw an offer for afternoon tea, at the Haycock just north of Peterborough. Today we went for our tea, I have to say, it was awful. I thought if you were paying quite a bit of money, for tea, sandwiches and cake, it would all taste great. It didn’t, the fillings in the sandwiches seemed to be regular tesco prepacked stuff, the cakes were clearly Mr Kippling. Now, there is nothing wrong with Mr Kippling, but when you spend over £50 for tea, you expect fresh. The local cafe sell locally made cakes and bread etc. Quality doesn’t have to cost, even with the scones, it was squirty cream, which ruined it for me. So yeah, avoid the Haycock, crap tea, crap service.
On the way home, we went to Oundle, lovely little town, across the boarder into Northamptonshire. My sister has a school placement there next year, looked like a nice school.
