First clotted cream

We enjoyed this tea service in the casual lounge area at the Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel in Bowness-on-Windermere in Cumbria, on the first leg of my two-week UK trip. Simply lovely.

I thought when I arrived in Cardiff people would be offering me crumpets and biscuits and chutney and cheddar baps until the sheep came home. Alas, was not to be. (Though it must be noted that the cream they serve with the coffee is so thick I thought it was yoghurt at first.)

Tomorrow: London. Will the tide turn in favour of clotted cream?
