SiLly Old BEar

August 20, 2018

Or eat it.  Y'know... Especially if you're at Colwick Hall!  And yes, that's right! - Byron's Brasserie have done it again! The Silly Old Bear and his friends have bounced into Byron's Brasserie for another afternoon tea full of savouries, cakes and gorgeous room decor.


We arrived at Colwick Hall and I had preordered Prosecco for our arrival as it was Nicky's Birthday and that was given to us straight away.  We ordered our usual English Breakfast and Decaf tea and waited for our food.


The menu this time was yummy, although a little more traditional.  If you remember last time we had mini burgers in a blue bun and cherry compote instead of jam on our scones.  This time was a little different, but still really good!


The sandwich selection we had to start with were so nice with cucumber and cream cheese, chicken, bacon and mayonnaise, a prawn cocktail wrap and - my favourite - mature cheddar and chutney.  I was loving life with the last one, it was basically an extra perfect version of my favourite sandwich, cheese and pickle!


The bouncy trouncy savouries were our favourite this time, which is really unlike us.  The cute little cup of soup was carrot, orange and ginger.  I wasn't sure how I felt about this combination but as soon as I tasted it I was in love.  New favourite soup flavour, I think!  The pear and stilton mini croissant was the same.  I wasn't sure how I felt about eating a croissant with mouldy cheese and fruit in it, but it was our favourite thing of the whole meal.  I'm tempted to make some myself but I have a feeling it won't be nearly as nice if I do it...  I'll leave it to the professionals!


With the scones this time, we had cream with 'hunny' and a chocolate spoon for us to scoop it out with.  Obviously topped with jam, because you have to!


Then it was time for some rumbly tumbly delights!


In a crate, similar to that from Potty For Peter, was a selection of cakes that looked and tasted amazing!  This time it was completed by a cute little bee house!


In this selection of yummies, was a Donkey 'tael' blueberry muffin with raspberry cream, frosted lemon drizzle slice, passion fruit macaroon with stripes, honeycomb mini cheesecake, and my favourite was the elderflower and lime tart.
