The Gallery Tea Room

There is an oasis in Stamullen run by Karen and Brian. It is one of those tea shops that do cream tea scones with green tea perfection. I had eaten too many punnets of Clarke’s strawberries, fresh, and I needed to visit, just for the cream. Karen’s scones are better than a Devonshire cream scone in a top London hotel. Stamullen is an surprising location to select for french toast, pancakes, crumpets and home made scones – tea room perfection, and a draw to know about, in an unassuming unexpected place. Tea room perfection in Stamullen, a draw for anyone tempted by the Summer, to overindulge, in advance, in strawberries. (c) Howard Fox
