Reasons for trip

A slice of cake is always a treat as I rarely make a cake just for me. It had been a fraught morning shopping so I needed something to cheer me up. I headed to Ravendale Street where there is a choice of four cafes all next to each other. I went to investigate the cakes in each before deciding on Mrs Potts Tea room.

This has only been open a few months and is a very attractive tea room with pink, white and blue wallpaper – a mix of stripes and flowers. Unlike the others, this is bright and light. The pink theme is continued to the pink and white gingham table cloths. Tables seating four have comfortable wooden chairs with padded floral seats.

The small serving counter had a choice of cakes including Victoria sponge, sticky toffee cake, a chocolate cake called Mollia’s brownie as well as a traditional tea loaf. There were scones and cup cakes.

I chose the tea bread (£2.95) which was served to the table on a white square plate with a small pot of marg. Fortunately I realised before spreading on the tea bread. The tea bread was excellent – a thick slice which was very fruity. Mixed peel and small pieces of chopped walnuts added interest. In fact it didn’t need any fat on it (and certainly NOT marg). I felt this really let them down and has reduced the star rating.

They also serve a range of reasonably priced breakfasts from toast to the full English. light meals include soup, jacket potatoes, salads and quiches as well as the usual range of sandwiches, paninis and toasties. They also do afternoon teas. Prices are very competitive – a pot of tea is £1.30. With four other places next to each other, they probably have to be.

The tea room was quiet when I visited, service was quick and staff pleasant.
