CRANBERRIES OF RYE

Rye, East Sussex

The shabby-chic, cupcake-themed tearoom of Cranberries of Rye truly is a little slice of heaven. (An ancient town in county East Sussex, Rye was a thriving seaside village 400 years before Columbus found America.) A tempting window display of elegantly decorated mini cakes lures locals into the cosy, pastel-coloured interiors. It’s the kind of place you’ll love and think you won’t find again, as here the art of sipping tea is a relaxing ritual in an unhurried haven for the gathering of one’s strength. Tea for two brings you a pot of Earl Grey, which helps wash down the cream cheese and cucumber finger sandwiches together with a whimsical profusion of small, decadent cream cakes. The art of making and presenting a perfect cream tea is a rarity, but one that Cranberries, a truly authentic English tearoom, has perfected. You’ll struggle to find a more enchanting way to spend an afternoon in England.
