It’s an age old debate: whether to spread jam or clotted cream first on a scone? Whether you like your dollop of jam first, or lashings of clotted cream take priority, Annie’s Tea Room in Thrupp, Oxfordshire is the perfect place to ponder this delightful dilemma. Originally part of an old British Waterways yard, the tearooms are set in a sleepy, canal-side hamlet near a nature reserve.
Annie’s offers a range of tempting cakes all made from scratch, but quite the best are their large home-baked scones. Nowhere else I am happier waiting for 10 minutes for my food to arrive warm and fresh from the oven! A lazy country walk along the canal or Chiltern River awaits afterwards if one feels the need to be virtuous after a little overindulgence.
