Barnsgate Manor is Renowned for it’s cream teas. It is #NationalCreamTeaDay today and it appears there is some debate as to whether cream or jam goes first… …
Our outside terrace and views of the South Downs make for an excellent spot to have a cream tea. Not only that but our cream teas are talked about just as much as our views! They have developed quite the reputation. However, when it comes to cream or jam first, that’s not something we like to get involved in!
There has been a very heated discussion on Twitter today with regards to the proper order. You may be interested to know, there isn’t actually a proven, definitive method to preparing your scones (although there are those who would argue the case until the very end!).
