Mothers Day Afternoon Tea 2017

Here at The Tally Ho Tearooms… we like to do what we do best for Special Occasions… our Afternoon Teas.  Based on the Popularity of what customers have ordered every Mother’s Day since we opened seven years ago, we have created a Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea which will be available for both Mothering Sunday – 26th March and the Saturday 25th March too.  The best way to make a booking is to call us on  01986 897 818 between 10am and 5pm (from 11am on Sundays).  Please let us know at the time of booking if you have any dietary amendments to make, we will have a Gluten Free Version, but please request this when you book.  Click picture to enlarge image.

Please note that the Mothers Day Afternoon Tea and Little One’s Tea, replace the Standard menu for these two days in March.

Pretty Little Figaros visit the Tally Ho Tearooms

If you don’t know what we mean by Figaros… just take a look.  A pretty little car with only a small number produced, the Nissan Figaro!  Last Sunday we had a visit from 17 of these automobiles and their owners!!  I will let the organisers of the East Anglia Fun Run describe their visit… as they were kind enough to write something for us.

Sunday 24th July 2016 saw the sun beating down on the bonnets of 17 Nissan Figaros as they gathered at the Tally Ho, Mettingham at the start of the East Anglia Figaro Fun Run, organised to celebrate the 25th birthday of the production of this unique and stylish motor car.

Having refuelled on the Tally Ho’s varied selection of delicious cakes and scones, the cars then left in a multi coloured convoy and made it’s way to the coast for a picnic and catch up in the warm sunshine.

Many thanks to Miles and his team at the Tally Ho for coping so efficiently with the large influx of hungry Figgy owners!

.. thank you to Chris Savage for sending that in.

Yellow Roses Cake for 90th Birthday

We have made a number of cakes for 80, 90 and over 100 years  birthday celebrations and most of the time the number of years is included on the cake.m  Well I’m not sure everyone wants to be reminded of just how long they have been with us as they don’t feel as old as the number suggests!

So this is a birthday cake for a 90th birthday…. but the number… I left it off! (It’s actually a cake for my mother-in-law – so I knew she wouldn’t appreciate the reminder!!)

Bank Holiday Mondays

We are open all Bank Holiday Mondays (4 in total) each Spring/Summer. So we are open tomorrow 30th May.  11am till 5pm.  We look forward to seeing you!

Free Cake for 103rd Birthday celebrated at the Tearooms

Recently we were delighted to host a Large Tea Party to celebrate a 103rd Birthday! Yes 103 years young!  For such an achievement we offered one of our Birthday Cakes for free, pictured here. We created a mixture of spring colours for the flowers and a pale green ombre effect for the sides of this 8″ Victoria Sponge.

We have also decided that anyone celebrating a birthday with a Group Tea Party who is 101 years old or more will also be offered a free birthday cake, just like Grace!

Cherry and Almond Cake

Our Cherry and Almond cake – a fairly new addition to the line up of cakes on offer here at the Tally Ho Tearooms.
Soft Almond flavoured sponge with cherry conserve filling covered with Butter cream, Almond flakes and a whole Cherry per slice!

Easter Time – Time for Tea?

Easter is upon us, yes it’s an early one this year.  We are open usual hours all over Easter – PLUS we are open on Bank Holiday Monday too!  That will be from 11am till 5pm.

Do we know what the weather will be like?  Some say dry, some say wet… perhaps we’ll just look out of the window each day and take pot luck with our lovely British weather!

Either way, you can be assured of a warm welcome here at The Tally Ho Tearooms.  We will just say though, if you are planning a visit, you might want to reserve a table, especially if there are more than 2 or 3 in your group.

Oh… and don’t forget… the clocks go FORWARD this Saturday – yay British Summer Time!
