A Late Lunch Is Better Than Nothing…

Last summer  our Singaporean friend “Velvetine” was visiting the Kiwidutch Family and together we set out on a bucketload of adventures.

At this stage of our journey we are touring the grounds of Audley End House and are almost at the end of our tour. Velvetine and I missed out on lunch after each becoming separated from Himself and the kids, so now we are back at the house and really hungry.

Luckily the Servant’s Hall has been converted into a Café so we can grab a quick bite to eat. I opt for a sausage roll and a slice of coffee walnut cake, whilst Velvetine goes for a sandwich, scone and a piece of Victoria sponge.

I don’t know if it was because we had lunch so late in the day, but the food was a bit dry… edible but nothing to write home about.   We ate it because we were hungry but Himself said later that he thought that he and the kids had better fare where they were earlier but not having been with them earlier I can’t personally compare.

After our quick late lunch we have a look at the estate shop, buy some postcards and jars of  locally made chutney for gifts and then head out to the last part of the estate we can manage to see before they close the gates for the day and kick us out…

  1. The pastries don’t look as good as others you’ve posted in the past, they look like Spanish pastries, something you’d eat but not recommend.
