During the war …. one of the rooms inside – The Oakroom – became “Betty’s Bar”, a popular haunt among servicemen from nearby air bases.

Some left a permanent reminder of their visit by inscribing their name onto a mirror which still hangs in the basement café!

By the end of the war the mirror featured nearly 600 names. Sadly many of the young men who signed their name never returned from their dangerous missions overseas.

The tea room has tons of delicious pastries and in this article, I highlight 5 of my favorite recipes to make at home.
