Cuppa Of The Week -River Hut Surbiton

This weeks cuppa of the week goes to The River Hut at Surbiton.

I arrived at Surbiton Station last week for my day at the Handmade fair and decided as it was a nice day I would walk to the Hotel.

When the Holiday Inn was in sight I spotted Thames Ditton Marina. There was a little cafe / Bar on the side of the Marina it looked busy and quite contemporary – I decided that’s where I was going to have dinner that night!

Hubby finished work in central London and met me at the hotel. Then we headed out for Dinner.

We sat outside as it was a nice night!

We ordered dinner the staff spoke to us like we were friends, such a lovely vibe. I could have almost believed I was on holiday somewhere abroad.

So now to my cuppa –

After my day at The Handmade Fair all I wanted was a cuppa! so we headed back to The River Hut!

It seemed there was a private party on and all the tables inside were reserved! One of the ladies who we had met the night before greeted us at the door. She asked if we had reserved and when we said no she said oh were booked up inside but you’re welcome to sit outside on the deck!

I really only wanted a cuppa so we ordered our tea & coffee and decided that we would also sample some cake.

We got talking to the lady who asked us where we had come from and what we were doing in London.20160916_193952 10.37.29.jpg

Then me and hubby sat with our cuppa’s and cake discussing the day and listening to some sea scouts rowing in the dark on the river.

It felt like such a great place to have a bite to eat and the deserts were amazing!

If we are ever in that area again Id love to go back for one of the live music nights!

Cuppa Of The Week – (1) ChilliPetals

Welcome to this brand new series

Each week I will be posting all about my favorite cuppa of the week.

This past week my favorite cuppa goes to ChilliPetalsSAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

ChilliPetals Is a coffee shop with gift shop & florist’s , based in a former Hotel in a small village called Tuxford.

Today I took the children to school and headed out to a local coffee shop for a coffee & a slice of toast.

The shop is bright yet cosy. I sat in a comfy bucket seat by the window but I have been before and sat in one of the sofa areas. It’s such a great place to meet up with friends and enjoy a coffee and a chat.

My coffee came – it was amazing after what seemed like the longest summer holidays to sit and enjoy a quiet cuppa made for me.

My cuppa today – A tall one shot latte, creamy and frothy went down a treat.

I managed to connect to the WiFi and do a little social media catch up!

After my toast and cuppa I had a browse around the gifts – There was a 50% sale on some of the items so I picked up a few things for Christmas gifts.

Then off to pay – Quite reasonable prices

I was tempted to stay for lunch as the soup that day smelt amazing.

There’s always another time!
