What better way to celebrate my birthday in the year of my running challenge than afternoon tea at the renowned country bakery The Running Fox?
Last night I strapped up my knee in another step to try and help my recovery and get back on the road. I was able to distract my frustration with preparing the name settings for our afternoon celebrations in Felton, Northumberland. Goodness everyone’s orders sounded delicious!
On Sunday 13 of my family and friends gathered around a long table, with glasses of prosecco, pints of real Northumbrian ale and pots of tea ready to toast the birthday celebrations.
The Running Fox afternoon tea, is not for the light stomached but have no fear the friendly staff are ready with boxes should you need to take anything home if you’re too full! It is an absolute decadent bargain, with a huge wedge of pie, massive gourmet sandwich, monstrous scone (cream or cheese) and a slice of cake accompanied by endless tea or coffee all for only £12.50!
Paul and I were could be sat quietly making our way through the goodies in front of us. The laughter from Chris, Beth, Angela, Neil and Emily went very well with my delicious corned beef pie followed quickly by a cream scone.
If you are ever in Northumberland we all thoroughly recommend the Running Fox Bakery but be warned it’s very popular so you often have to book weeks in advance!
