From Willy Wonka style treats, to a neighbourhood tour with a difference, to the most exciting, theatrical meal of my life... these are my top tips to satisfy your inner foodie!
As many readers of my Blog probably know I am a massive tearoom fan and so is fellow food luvver, Rachel Wheeler who suggested we do a quick run down of some our favourite tearooms/cafes from around the UK.

The very word could have been invented for it.
