Gluten Free Afternoon Tea at Drink, Shop, & Do

March 11, 2014

Since moving to the U.K. I've fallen in love with the whole 'tea time' thing. Who wouldn't? It's just yummy sandwiches and mouth watering cakes and scones! But everything in an afternoon tea consists of gluten! Well, except the tea :) 

My sweet sister-in-law knows how much I love all the kind of stuff. So as a thank you for organising her baby shower, she took us to a place I had never been that does a wonderful gluten free tea! It's a place called Drink, Shop & Do. It's such a cute little retro place making it different then your normal posh tea. And the best part, it has a gluten free menu!!!

My tea platter, was just like the normal tea platter – sandwiches, scones and little brownie cakes. The sandwiches were so lovely. The bread didn't even taste gluten free it was that good! There was a cheese and sultana scone. The cheese scone was hard and I was unable to cut it, so I just dug into the sultana scone. It was a bit hard as well, but I managed to cut into it and with jam and clotted cream it was so delicious!  The only thing I didn't enjoy were the brownies – they had that very chalky gluten free taste. 

I really enjoy these kinds of afternoons out. People who don't have coeliac sometimes don't understand what a treat this sort of food/experience can be. If you want a different sort of afternoon experience, I highly recommend this place.
