So continuing with the 2018 Afternoon Tea Showdown, my sister and myself went to Three Sisters Bake in Quarrier’s Village on Saturday for their Easter Afternoon Tea.
Quarrier’s Village is near Kilmacolm / Bridge of Weir and used to be homes for orphans back in the 19th Century. Fast forward 100 hundred years it is now run by the charity Quarrier’s and aims to help disadvantaged / disabled young people, i think they still operate here but i’m not too sure.
So onwards with the review!
Location: **** I have never been to Quarrier’s and it’s very quaint. I would like to come back in summer, because it was freezing on Saturday and i just wanted back to the car.
Service ***/* It took a while for us to get our tea, but i think that was because they were busy and there was lots of kids and families in before they did their easter egg trail. So i’m giving 3/4 stars. Other than that they were lovely.
Sandwiches ***We never got any! It was a savoury plate. I’ll add a link to the photo because i never took one i was mildly hungover and ravenous so just went straight in. There was, a lamb slider (divine!), coronation chicken (not my favourite, it was nice, just couldn’t eat that on a full sandwich) hot smoked salmon with beetroot pate on soda bread (meh, the beetroot didn’t do anything) pork and fennel sausage roll (i don’t like fennel i have now realised) and a black pudding scotch egg ( i ate half and gave my sister the other half, we weren’t keen) I’m giving it three stars because although i ate everything, it wasn’t to my taste, the lamb slider was amazing though i could’ve ate that on a whole sandwich!
Scone **** so tasty! Fruit scones aswell, could’ve done with being a smidge bigger, lol.
Cakes **** Now i took mine home as i couldn’t face them (the hangover was creeping in at this point) i ate the mini hot cross bun, but its not worth it if you can’t toast it and cover it in butter! I ate mine on Easter Sunday with a cuppa and they were lovely! We had a creme egg brownie, rich and chocolately, mini egg carrot cake, very moist with a cream cheese frosting, victoria sponge was lovely and i’m not a big fan of this sometimes it can be too sickly, but this was great!
Tea/Coffee **** I had a jasmine green tea and my sister opted for a soft drink. The tea was lovely and came in a wee tea pot.
Overall **** This was a lovely way to spend the afternoon, the cafe is busy and our table was a bit small but we are definitely coming back for lunch one day maybe when its not so busy! The girls have a cook book which you can purchase and lots of other little nick nacks which are lovely.
Our last afternoon tea is here.
