with Devonshire cream & house made preserve (vanilla bean rose)
The scones were of the cranberry variety on our visit (the last afternoon tea service). More biscuit like, with a slightly crisp crust, moist crumb that hinted at butter (but lacked the diary's flavourful prominence). It's really just me, but I find cranberry scones a little boring, thankfully everything was saved with the ample use of Devonshire cream! Oh what joy can be had with airy thick precious fat.
