Late autumn fruit

Wasn't expecting to find Rasberries on our bushes this late in the Year. It has been a mild autumn on the Yorkshire Wolds.

Drewton's on the Drewton Estate Farm Shop & Cafe

Since it opened in October 2010 I've been meaning to visit this Farm Shop & Cafe which is situated on the A1034 just north of South Cave.  A pleasant afternoon gave the chance to meander across the Yorkshire Wolds and admire the colours of Autumn.  Drewton's gave the opportunity for a pit stop half way round. 

We browsed around the farm shop first admiring some great produce, much of it sourced in Yorkshire, but also including exotic delights from further afield such as Turkish Delight and Buffalo burgers.  There were two sections within the smartly renovated farm buildings where food was being served on this Sunday afternoon.  Both were bustling with customers.  

Drewton's bills itself as both a restaurant and a tearoom.  We only had room for afternoon tea but having seen the menu and the plates going past us to other diners we vowed to come back another day for a full Sunday lunch.  Roast rib of beef at £9.95 seemed very reasonable.  We had coffee and tea with cakes - Harrogate fruit loaf served with Wensleydale cheese was very tasty indeed and the serving was generous.  My companions had carrot cake, recommended by the waitress and, I was told, it was moist and delicious.  The surroundings were pleasant, the staff attentive and at around £5 per person it was an afternoon well spent.
