A gentle good night

Teaser 2016 Strap A

Just short of 300 reviews, this is the end. Winter approaches, and I’m already hearing news of closures amongst my top 20 list. I’ve had a quiet season anyway; most of the hard work was done last year. To those of you who’ve stayed with me as we munched our way across Devon, I salute you. To those yet to come, treat this site as an archive since it will not be updated any more.

flavourI just have one final review for you, my absolute and utter, top-most recommended, wonderfullest, amazing-most, delectable, and deliciousest cream tea spot (based solely on grace and flavour, without the pressure of cost): with a 4/5 for grace, and a 6/5 for flavour, making my only 10/10 – The Old Forge in Chagford. Over the summer, its proprietor and chef, Richard, produced a wonderful ‘scone of the month’ alongside his regular fare – a tangy, richly sweet, raspberry and white chocolate scone, accompanied by Tayberry jam. Following this has been his recent Apple and Cinnamon Dappy – a kind of cinammon roll but made with scone dough. I almost cried it was so gorgeous, with the thickly opulent cream gently melting into it, and a superfluously delightful apple and cinammon jam nestling on top.

Goodbye Devon cream teas! May we meet again…
