Me & Mrs Fisher York

York is spoiled for great tea shops. Apart from somewhere called Bettys, there’s the stately retreat of Grays Court, the small but perfectly performed Perky Peacock, alongside Lendal Bridge, the cool charm of DeClare's, the delightful clutter of the Hairy Fig and the urban villagey hub of the Pig and Pastry. Me and Mrs Fisher joins the queue in 2011 with a homespun cupcake and Cath Kidston sort of feel.

Head for Monkgate, look for the Bile Beans building just outside the city walls and there it is, quaint as you like with crocheted mats, bone china teacups and vintage knick knacks. There’s the odd savoury, some fairly regular sandwiches maybe smoked mackerel pate but their big thing is cake: Madeira cakes, scones warm from the oven and cup cakes. The home-made bit happens once a month; craft workshops with knitting, sweet-making, watercolour painting on full and half day courses all with good food provided.
