Myself and my boyfrind had walked the loop along the river from Tintern to Brockweir and back. It was a lovely walk, however the heavens opened as we started heading back to the Tintern.
We decided that we fancied a cuppa so we popped into the Abby Mill for something to eat and drink. The chalkboards outside caught our eye and we fancied nearly everything on them! However we decided to go for cream tea. The portion sizes are HUGE! We only needed 1 portion between 2, however we hadn't eaten here before so were not aware of the sizes. We had 2 giant scones each, a large bowl of cream and a large bowl of jam. Our tea also came with extra hot water so we could top ourselves up. It was not the best cream tea either of us had had for the price, and wished we had gone for soemthing else. However it was pleasent enough after a long wet walk!
We were the only people in the Mill at the time (probably had something to do with the weather), so there was not much of an atmosphere. But the location is lovely, and on a sunny or dry day I am sure it is a lot busier. Its quite nice to be sat in there when its raining as it is like a conservatory and you can hear the rain tapping on the roof.
The restaurant doesn't actually accept cards, however as we only had card to pay on they walked us over to the shop and we paid via card in there.
If I am dog walking in the area again I would like to stop here and try something else off the menu.
