Review: The Carriage Tea Rooms
I’ve been visiting Llangollen Railway for years. I’ve watched the tea rooms change hands, and each new owner brought their own stamp. Even if that stamp was pure ruin.
Not now though. The new guys are awesome. Putting your own stamp on things has a new meaning with the Taylors.
Its family run with a couple of extras, who in fairness are treated like family and that comes across. No one ever looks sad, or annoyed, or bored. Everyone is always busy with something, and you can have a proper laugh with them all.
So they started with a traditional tea rooms. The ideas have flowed ever since. They have recently developed an old railway carriage into a beautiful, Carriage tea rooms. I went along over the weekend to give it a go. Safe to say I was not disappointed.
I’m a massive foodie. I LOVE food. And when you can get a decent meal, for a great price. Who can argue?
We started off with a drink. I had to have a latte. I fancied gingerbread, but they had run out. I wasn’t complaining, I went to my second favourite option. Caramel. YUMMY!
It had been raining all day, I wasn’t fancying cold food so I opted for soup and a sandwich. Oh my goodness. Broccoli and cheddar soup, homemade. Perfect. Usually I have to add salt and/or pepper to my soups. But this was spot on.
I went for a traditional egg mayo butty. I’ve not a clue how it was made but oh sweet jesus it was the best egg butty I’d had in a long time. I just love egg mayo.
I’d eaten every last scrap. I don’t do waste.
My Waist on the other hand, says otherwise. BUT. YOLO!
The atmosphere was great. We sat next to the window, the weather was quite eerie actually. They had a heater set up for us, it was a bit chilly, but we weren’t too bothered. All we wanted was food, we’d just been to the gym. We deserved a warm treat.
We could’ve stopped there, but we don’t do things by half here in Wales. Go big or Go home! So we had hot chocolate fudge cake with whipped cream. OH. OH. OH.
You need to visit this place if you haven’t already, its excellent. The atmosphere, the nostalgia, the food and the company is great. Friendly staff you can have a laugh with that’ll meet your every need, be it coffee and cake, cheese and wine.
