Basically British: "For a delightful cup of tea...." Bristol Restaurant Tip by Pawtuxet

Bristol Restaurants: 5 reviews and 6 photos

 
 

Basically British serves high tea, lunch, and sensational deserts. There are about a zillion kinds of loose tea you might buy by the pound; antiques of all sorts from rugs to lamps to vases; numerous imported food products; odd bits of furniture; tea pots- tea cozies-tea strainers - packaged teas. The lunches include homemade soups, fresh ingredients for sandwiches, excellent mini quiches, strawberries dipped in chocolate....need I go on?

Susan and I enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Basically British tea room in Bristol. Run by an English woman who brings us the best in tea and scones and clotted cream.....our lunch was truly delicious. You can eat like this any day at this great little spot. See my tip under restaurants...for a full description of all the things you can find at this sweet little spot. We sat at a window table looking out at the town. Outside a tea pot hangs by the doorway...with steam pouring out non-stop.
NOTE: RESTAURANT HAS MOVED TO WARREN...TOWN NEXT DOOR. HERE IS THE LINK FOR THE NEW Basically British

Favorite Dish: Love the high tea with the three tiered trays filled with finger sandwiches and their homemade scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam. yum!
