So after we had breakfast (see yesterdays post) we checked out the Glassboat Fayre outside…

They had a croquet lawn…

And games like pin the tail on the donkey and…

They had a tea and cake stand, the difference from any other fair being that this was Lahloo Tea, (more on this in another post coming soon!)

…and the cakes… I am gutted I didn’t have one (damn that full english!) The pictures look better than I remember…

…and they were serving tea in proper china teacups, supplied by Bristol Vintage

They also had homemade jam made by the lovely Lido people (another restaurant from the same family as Glassboat)…

…Reg the Veg, the famour Bristol greengrocer also paid the Fayre a visit and offered up strawberries and cream, among other treats…

and there was also a stand from an English vineyard, Strawberry Hill…

They were letting us taste… I tried the Chardonnay and Orion, they were both Gorgeous and only £6 a bottle, I wanted one of each but was assured that they deliver to Bristol all the time so resisted, the Chardonnay is being chilled ready for the weekend!

They also had a cocktail stand, from Hyde and Co, an amazing little spot that I might tell you about one day, it’s quite hidden and feels like a speakeasy, I love it… they’re cocktails had a English Fayre theme too with English Mojitos, and Mar-Tea-nis (cute!)

Another friend of the Glassboat Trethowans Dairy were there serving up a huge range of cheese…

…as well as their famous toasties… which we had to sample…

I had a bite, or two, I was full but I can never resist cheese…

Great idea for a summer day, I miss villages fetes in Bristol, this was a great alternative and I got to do a little shopping, perfect!
