Finding The Best Cream Tea On The South Coast: Aunt Fanny's, Wimborne

16 October 2019

Oooh look, the self-titled cream tea connoisseur is back in the game. In case you're new here, lemme recap… I love a cream tea. I find myself having a cream tea fairly often, and over time have really learnt how to separate a good one from a naff one... So, I thought I'd pull all of this knowledge and experience together, and create a blog series looking for the best cream tea on the south coast. I've already written reviews of lots of other tearooms which you can see here, but on with today's... Aunt Fanny's, Farm Shop and Café, Wimborne.

Taste 

Okay, so we need to talk about this scone. Wow. It's hard to explain but the actual flavour of the scone was almost caramelly? It came out warm, and the texture was divine. Can you tell I was a huuuge fan? The jam it was served with was definitely a homemade one, and if I had to guess the flavour I'd say it was plum - but don't quote me on that. 


Clotted Cream Quantity 

The cream to jam ratio wasn't quite perfect in my eyes... I'm very much a more cream than jam sort of person, and there was definitely more jam than cream. That being said, I did manage to get a good thin layer of cream for both halves, so it wasn't the end of the world!


Price

So, a scone with jam and cream, and a cup of tea wasn't on the menu, so I can't tell you the official price, boo, bad blogger. But, we had a cream tea, a coffee and a slice of chocolate for £11ish... So, it's definitely not badly priced at all... I'd imagine about £6?


Aesthetic

So, Aunt Fanny's Café is set in a renovated stables amongst their farm, and it's full of so many quirky, interesting décor pieces. According to their website, 'Nes has been upcycling furniture and reclaiming and reusing woods and textiles creating a truly unique and quirly setting which is homely and welcoming' - and I agree that that they've done just that!

There's a very rustic, warming feel about the place and I loved all the bits and pieces that were scattered around the place. Oh, and if that wasn't enough, there's also a farm shop selling all sorts of fresh, local produce. Hellooooo, yummy food.


Location

Being set on a farm, it's a little off the beaten track, but was the perfect stop for us after we took Murphy on a walk the other day. If you're planning on visiting anywhere Wimborne sort of way, I'd highly recommend popping into Aunt Fanny's - you really won't be disappointed! Oh, and dogs are more than welcome, wahey!


Where would you like me to visit next?
