Afternoon Tea


My friend Annette came to stay last weekend, and just for a change, we decided to be refined ladies, and take in the sights of Bath, instead of exploring the cocktail bars. The weather was beautiful on Saturday, so we headed out into town. We had a good dig round the vintage shops and charity shops (they are some awesome finds, thanks to Bath being full of posh people!), and then decided to take ourselves to Bea’s Vintage Tearooms for afternoon tea, like classy ladies. We chose the afternoon tea for two, and a pot of Assam Breakfast Tea.


The tea came with a proper strainer, and an even an egg timer to tell us when the tea was properly brewed! I’m mad for the pretty crockery in the tearooms. I’ve begun gathering some pretty teacups of my own, but I obviously need more.

The afternoon tea was amazing. We had three kinds of sandwiches (smoked salmon, cucumber, and egg and cress), buttermilk scones and two kinds of cake (Victoria Sponge and a lemon cake with lemon meringue topping). Everything was delicious. Annette and I cut the two cakes in half so we could try both, and they were perfect. I’m not actually that big of a fan of Victoria Sponge cake usually, but it was seriously yummy.

  • Necklace from Dorothy Perkins
  • Sunglasses – fake Ray Ban, thrifted

How do you like the Ray Bans? We’re pretty sure they’re not genuine, after comparing them to Annette’s, but I picked these up on Saturday for £1! Serious  charity shop win, right there.

Suitably full of cake and tea, we went back out into the sun for a walk around Bath, before stocking up on ice lollies and cider, to consume in my flat with all the windows open. All in all, we had a pretty perfect sunny day.I swear they’re not paying me, but we had a fantastic afternoon in Bea’s Vintage Tearooms, and it’s definitely a must visit if you’re in Bath.
