The Wild Strawberry Cafe

(Originally posted on my old blog on  Thursday 26th June 2014)

My other half's lovely mother had told me about a little café that she thought was just my cup of tea. So yesterday we popped there for a spot of lunch! Well she wasn't wrong, I totally fell in love with this charming place! The Wild Strawberry Cafe is in a Mongolian Yurt at Peterley Manor Farm in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire. Set next to the strawberry (and other fruit) picking field, it's surrounded by hay bales and some outside tables and chairs. Inside it has the most wonderful rustic feel with mismatched wooden chairs and tables painted in various shades, bunting, and there is even a wood burner!

We both had the Welsh rarebit for lunch which was accompanied by a leafy salad with apple and a cute little jar of delicious tomato relish. To wash it down we had sparkling elderflower with mint and lime. It was so refreshing! Tea is served in lovely teapots with vintage china cups and saucers and your milk comes in a mini glass milk cute! To top it off the service was wonderfully friendly!

I adored all the little touches, like the bottles on each table with fresh flowers, cutlery in jam jars, little chalkboard signs and the crates of flowers dotted around the café. It's been done so beautifully! I highly recommend you paying a visit if you are in the area. Whether you want refreshments when you come strawberry picking or just fancy somewhere different for lunch or tea and cake, It's the perfect place to do that on a summer's day!

Can you tell I fell a teeny bit in love with this place!
A special thanks to my boyfriend's Mother Joan for my lunchtime treat!
