Sophie T's Vintage Tea Shop, Peterborough

Well, who doesn't like to treat themselves to a delicious, traditional, afternoon tea? We thought we'd do a quick shout out to local Vintage Tea Rooms, SOPHIE T's in Yaxley, near Peterborough, which is not too far from the site of our next Peterborough fair on 31st October and 1st November!

We visited Sophie T's recently, with some friends to celebrate a couple of birthdays, and what a glorious place it was to celebrate! We were treated to sumptuous and generous portions of sandwiches, with a variety of fillings, scones, clotted cream and jam and a selection of cakes too; coffee and walnut, victoria sponge, chocolate and carrot cake...and even better, our Lullabelle was able to enjoy every mouthful as they offer Gluten Free options too!

Owner Lynne clearly has a passion for the vintage lifestyle, and the old fashioned tea rooms in Yaxley, are decked out in such a manner that makes you feel like you've stepped back in time 60 years as soon as you walk through the door. And we were delighted to be entertained by a wonderful pianist tinkling some classic old tunes over the ivory keys.

Do make sure to visit this place at some point if you've never been, whether it be for a special occasion, or just a trip out one weekend, but in line with the true vintage nature of the place, be sure to take cash as cards aren't in use!

A pure delight, and definitely one not to miss.
