Having visited the excellent Baggins Bookshop and finding a great copy of Saki’s short stories, I was in need of a cup of tea, so followed the sign up some narrow stairs. There was a caution sign on the gents toilets about being for customers only, then I was in Peggoty’s Parlour. The parlour is a large room with sash windows overlooking the wonderful High Street and Cathedral, with tables for two or four. I ordered a cream tea, which was one of the best I have ever enjoyed - the fruit scones were deliciously warm and the cream was in a generous supply, along with some great strawberry jam (jelly for you colonials). The waitress was very polite and efficient- from ordering to delivery took 2 minutes! You pay at the table in cash and then I had to use the gents as a paying customer! The lack of space means you have to try your luck, but if you are lucky, enjoy a slice of ye olde England for a very reasonable price : I paid £5 for the exemplary cream tea.
