One of the most frequently asked questions we have had since opening is, what is a Cream Tea and what is the proper way to eat it.
We had anticipated this and in order that people did not feel intimidated by the event we actually wrote a "How to" guide to an English Tea Rooms that can be purchased here www.shellystearooms.com/store/The-How-to-guide-for-an-English-Tea-Rooms-p423324726 for only $6.95
Below is the exert on Cream Tea etiquette:
"If this is your first Cream Tea you may be unsure what to do, so below is a simple guide.
Despite its name, Cream Tea actually relates to the cream you place on the Scones and not the Tea itself, you will receive two freshly baked Scones either fruit (raisin) or plain (by the way the correct pronunciation of scone rhymes with “gone” not “own”) they will arrive with pots of butter, strawberry preserve and clotted cream.
You will cut the Scone in half horizontally as you would a bread roll (bun), then firstly butter half of the scone and then spread the preserve on top to your taste and finally spread on lashings of clotted cream and then indulge yourself eating each half separately.
That said this is your Cream Tea to enjoy whatever way you wish!"
We hope you found this interesting and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask us and remember all that matters is that you enjoy your indulgence at Shelly`s. ... See MoreSee Less
So this is why we love living here and in so short a time feels like home, the overwhelming offers of help and suggestions really is touching. I have returned from a CVS minute clinic and have a prescription for this and my other drugs just cannot fathom why when we spoke to three different CVS pharmacist not one suggested their own minute clinic, so I have breathing space until I can get to see a doctor. However did need smelling salts when informed of the cost of one of them, wow, I am looking at good rx now to see how that works. Again thank you so much for taking the time to answer we really do appreciate it! ... See MoreSee Less
Ok so our latest "Help a Brit" post, we have not had time to register with a doctor over here and realised at the weekend that I am very short on a prescription medicine so called many drs surgery's, the long pond road urgent care etc and told by all the same that they cannot do anything to help for minimum of 6 weeks which does not help as I have 3 days of metformin left, we cannot believe that there is not a one of emergency facility to write a prescription for a routine medicine, in England the local gp`s surgery would arrange for this in the short term, we appreciate they cannot do this long turn however if you were visiting the US from abroad and lost your drugs you would need them replaced and not be told to wait 6-8 weeks. If anyone has any suggestions other than what we have already tried we really would appreciate it. ... See MoreSee Less
