A Trip to Manor Cottage Tea Room and Bakery with Mansfield Road Club
|Glorious Coffee and Toffee Cake at Manor Cottage Fledborough|
Jem recently came across aproper little cracker of a tea room while cycling with her local cycling club out at Fledborough. From the village on the Eastern edge of the Nottinghamshire county border are handwritten chalkboard signs to Manor Cottage Tea Room and Bakery which direct you down a bridleway type road to a gravel courtyard with a suitable wall for bike to be leaned against

On a nice summers morning it was good to sit outside on the tables although there was an event shelter up in case of inclement weather as well as seating indoors inside what was literally a farmhouse where you can see the kitchen and dining room.
You could easily relax with a coffee on the comfortable Chesterfield sofas and with a big array of impressive looking cakes to choose from it was a tough choice.
Ordering my coffee firstly off so could decide whether I wanted sweet or savoury food. My drink came promptly in a proper large mug- the type I drink from at home.

I decided that needed more savoury food with another member already ordering cheese on toast it settled what to have. I ended up opting for a large coffee and a cheesy scrambled eggs with toast. Being asked what bread would I like and reeling off all the fresh bread options made on site was on offer.
The sourdough bread which just come out the oven was my choice. The other guy in the group who’s obsessed with cheese on toast had the oatmeal bread which came out served in doorstop thickness slices with ample cheese was also a clear winner on the savoury front. My own meal was absolutely delicious with the scrambled eggs perfectly done. At some places it can be a little dull and dried up but definitely not at Manor Cottage.

The Toffee Cake looked great although I'd have needed help eating it with such a good size portion. The cake was lovely and moist as well as an easy eater, well worth trying.
I'll definitely be dragging Liam along next time as it was well worth the ride out and back home. The light lunch menu looked great too.
