In the über picturesque village of Lacock, in a tiny Tudor building (1167 – 1216), behind a garden of poppies and wild flowers, sits the lovely King John’s Hunting Lodge Tea House.

Arriving along the ancient lane,  you float through the gate and garden. Soaking in the pure Englishness of the scene.  Pitched roofs, dripping windows, muted brick and bright flowers set the scene for an excellent spot of tea.

Our arrival on a cool early spring day, gave us an idea of how important these warm homey spots were.  Brushing off the chill we soaked up the warm ambiance.  Once settled, we indulged in the “King John’s Royal Tea”, which included delectable Tea sandwiches (A yummy Welsh Rarebit for me – wish I had one now!) & warm scones served with local fruit jams and organic Jersey clotted cream.

We spread it on everything we could!  Of all the scones and jams I’ve had, this sitting raised the bar yet again.  Looking at the origins, I could see this being the perfect calorie filled breakfast for farmers setting out for a day’s labor.

A lighter version is the “Margart’s Cream Tea” which is the same, without the sandwiches.   Pretty blue and white china bore all the treats in a manor befitting the period-ness of Lacock

A daily menu includes soups, homemade breads, delicious pastries, mackerel cakes and more!  There is a fine selection of tea, hot chocolate, coffee, spiced apple, elderflower presse, hot berry bliss … and a little shop for take away.

Really just a pleasant place to lunch – thoroughly English 🙂

Wherever we travel two of the main things we always try to visit are 1) the local cultures baths and 2) the food markets.  Budapest is a haven for both!!!!!

Construction of the Great Market Hall started in 1894 according to the design of Samu Petz. In 1896 a few days before the handover fire destroyed about half of the roof.  After repairing the roof the market opened on 15th March 1897.

The spacious interior holds a festival of vivid colours; the fresh products displayed in the stalls, strings of red paprika and garlic, Hungarian salamis, meats, fresh pastries, dairy products, kitchen utensils, Hungarian wines and pálinka, honey, tea, herb mixes. The fine selection of mustards and goulash sauces packed in tooth paste tubes can make great souvenirs – and add a yummy dash of flavor to many dishes.  Another great thing to find here is saffron, and at reasonable price

Only a block away from the Opera (the opposite direction from the Callas)  the Művész Kávéház  smolders in  the atmosphere of an authentic eastern European coffee house- which it has been from 1899.   The ambiance is complete with its tall-smoky ceilings, dim golden light and crystal chandeliers.  Upon entry you will find, in the first room, a small bar with a nice selection of aperitifs.   Passing to the second room , you encounter a desert display with a diverse selection of delicious treats.

Stopping in the lovely Művész Kávéház coffee house before or after the Opera is a wonderful plan.  The desserts are amazing and during the warmer months, the outdoor seating is quite pleasant.

Getting there is very easy as it is quite close to the M1 Opera metro stop, or via the Trolley-bus.
