Bath Series – Pump Room

Our final trip during the Hen Do weekend was a bit of tourism and afternoon tea. We had a look round at the lovely shopping streets, the river and at the buildings. Bath really is a stunning place and I’d love to go again to hike and take in the sites.

We went to the Pump Room for our afternoon tea which is a grand room, with lots of tables, live music, chandeliers and very old paintings. This is how an afternoon tea should be done, unlike my last one!

We were seated by a waiter who was very good at his job. We each ordered the standard afternoon tea, I had a drink called Totally Minted with mine as it was a very hot day but there really was dozens of tea options.

We chatted for a little bit before a lovely platter was brought out with enough of everything for one each. We shared between three.

The sandwiches were delicate and fluffy, the fish souffle pot with the toast was stunning, I wasn’t a fan of the savoury scones but I never am.

The scones were fantastic, a plain and a raisin with clotted cream and strawberry jam. I’m not a huge fan of clotted cream but this one was surprisingly nice!

I love, LOVE fresh cream strawberry tarts and this one had crushed hazelnuts which made it even more amazing. The glazed profiterole was filled with a tart strawberry/raspberry cream, nice but very strong, I didn’t have the chocolate one but was told it was quite similar to tiramisu. The little macaroons were very well done, I pinched the green one.

It was £22.50, well, well worth the money and I highly recommend visiting if you’re in the area!
