Fancy a Cuppa? reviews 50 places across the UK for a good cup of tea or coffee and a nice piece of cake, a scone or other local delicacy. This is not a 50 best tea rooms or cafés guide. Rather it includes places that have a story to tell. There s the haunted house in Haworth, West Yorkshire, where some of the ghosts are apparently older than the Brontë sisters. Or the tunnel under a tea room in Windsor, where Nell Gwyn allegedly met Charles II. There are railway connections, literary links and good old-fashioned country garden tea rooms. There are the people and animals who run the places: the lady in Lincolnshire who also manages the House of Correction next door; a member of the Campaign for Real Bread; and a former VIP chauffeur who knows how to look after his customers in Devon. Not forgetting Megan, the tour-guide dog, or Poppy the parrot who maintains morale in Montgomery. This is the kind of book you should keep in your travel bag or the dashboard of your car. Wherever you go in the UK, you ll not be far from one of the tea rooms and cafés reviewed here.
