Eh by gum! You can now get a proper Yorkshire afternoon tea

Afternoon tea has long been a British institution, but a Yorkshire pub is giving the occasion a northern twist by serving it in Yorkshire puddings.


Dearne Valley Farm, Farmhouse Inns pub on Kestrel Way is celebrating National Afternoon Tea Week (13-19 August) by filling Yorkshire puddings with classic afternoon tea treats.

Guests will be able to enjoy a proper Yorkshire brew alongside a selection of traditional sandwich fillings, including: egg mayonnaise and cheese and pickle – all of which will be served in Yorkshire puddings – as well as a Victoria sponge topped with jam and cream.
