Have you ever been to Hebden Bridge? Its a bohemian little Yorkshire town , packed full of quirky independent shops. There’s hobbledy cobbledy streets and surrounding craggy countryside. We drove here the other weekend and saw quite a bit of said countryside! The satnav took us on a bit of a magical mystery tour, so we were a bit frazzled by the time we finally arrived.
It was a rainy & wet yet humid day. Even the ducks and geese were bedraggled. :)
We went in search of lunch and happily found a cafe above Feathergills Emporium in st George’s Square called The Blitz Cafe. Its a 1940′s tea room brimming with wartime
The menus are written in ration book style with wartime inspired dishes such as Corned Beef Hash, Rabbit Pie and Blitz Rarebit. Wil chose Bacon & Egg pie and I enjoyed my Homity Pie.
My Homity Pie was very tasty. Its made with spam, leeks and savoury mash. :)
There were some delicious homemade cakes on the menu too. And old fashioned pudding treats such as Spotted Dick and Jam Rolypoly. The waitresses dressed up in 1940s attire . I wish I had asked for a picture.
Downstairs in the Emporium there were wonderful sweet smelling aromas from the Apothocary. Lotions and potions galore.
So if your ever in Hebden Bridge , why not bob into the Blitz Cafe for a cuppa or a frefreshing glass of Rhubarb & Rosehip Cordial ( a waitresses recommendation which was amazingly good) and a piece of pie or afternoon tea.
Bye for now.X
