Dresser's Tea Room - named after Linthorpe Pottery founder Christopher Dresser; Father of Modern Deisgn - is a little treat. Just 10 minutes walk from Middlesbrough town centre on Linthorpe Road, it's not that far to grab a yummy afternoon tea and soak in some historical vibes.
This place has only been open for a few weeks and is run by a mum and daughter team from Middlesbrough. The room is very traditional with various props bringing this room to life as if we were back in the Victorian times. We managed to get a table by the window overlooking the cenotaph.
We had a little look at the menu but being tea ladies with huge appetites, we decided to try out the afternoon tea for two - the whole works!
Yummy scones with cream. I am the ultimate scone fan. The little strawberry on top was so tasty.
We munched though this afternoon tea, drowning ourselves with a good old brew. There is something about a streaming pot of tea and afternoon tea that makes me a super happy girl.
We managed to eat the whole thing with only a few crumbs to spare.
The Dressers tea room is only diddy with around 7 tables, so make sure you get down early.
This post is making me hungry all over again. Do you tea lovers have any places you like to visit for afternoon tea? x
