Description
Peggotty's Tea Shop has an interesting, ever changing decor inside the shop. Perhaps a little quirky? Bright paintings decorate the walls. There are tables in front of the shop, and also a couple of tables in the peaceful oasis of a back garden.The cakes and scones are 100% homemade. Try the tangy lemon drizzle or the nutty coffee and walnut, 2 of the favourites. They will not disappoint you.If you are feeling the need to be decadent, try a scrumptious afternoon tea - consisting of sandwiches of your choice, scones jam and clotted cream, and cake of your choice to finish.The cream teas are scrumptious - how can you resist?Go on - treat yourself! Try delicious Cornish pasty, BLT, various selection of Quiche . Pannni, toasted sandwich . And much more
