For afternoon tea refreshments, Dawsons catering had a large and glamorously decked out marquee
called the Phoenix Room. The deal of the day was “Devonshire” tea consisting of a scone with jam & cream and tea.
However, this was no ordinary scone & tea combo, oh, no, this was the most delicious,
melt-in-the-mouth, sweetly soft, springy but filling scone I have ever tasted perfectly accompanied by
a Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice tea.
I read later that they sold out before 2:30pm, a fact to which I can personally attest as I was lucky enough
to nab the second to last scone.
