The "dish ran away from the spoon" is on Burton Rd in West Didsbury, nestling between lots of little independent restaurants, interesting vintage shops, and small designer boutiques.
The afternoon tea consisted of sandwiches, two scones, chocolate dipped strawberries and then three cakes of your choice. After much deliberation I chose roast beef sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream, a blueberry cupcake with cream cheese frosting, raspberry and white chocolate blondie and lastly a slice of lemon drizzle cake. Mr R had mature cheddar and chutney sandwiches and lacking any imagination was going to have the same cakes as me, he was persuaded (told) to at least try two different cakes and then we could share some of each others, he then opted for a banana tea bread and key lime pie to go with his blueberry cupcake and scones.
