Scone of the week #1- Rocking Horse Cafe

I mentioned in my last post that I drive my Mum to the supermarket on a Thursday and sit in the car, knitting while she shops . We usually go out for a snack after that. Here in Northumberland we have no shortage of places to go for a cheese scone (we both love these) and a coffee.

This week we visited one of our favourites, The Rocking Horse Cafe, at Rock Moor. We had excellent coffee and scones, which were served warm with proper pats of butter (no fiddly foil packets), It felt really cosy today: the log burner was blazing and it was the perfect choice for a cold November day (though there is a garden with plenty of seating to use in warmer weather).

It’s a small very friendly place – in some ways more like going round to someone’s house for coffee than visiting a cafe. It’s also extremely dog friendly – in summer there is even a dog agility course set out in the garden.

Of course there is a rocking horse at the Rocking Horse Cafe

There is a vague knitting/woolly connection here at the Rocking Horse Cafe . There are two very friendly resident Border Collies – the sheepdog breed of choice here in the UK. It would also be a rather nice place for a small knit and natter group!

Do you think I should make Scone of the Week a regular feature of the blog?

I live in Northumberland, within sight of the sea and spend my time knitting, crocheting, sewing and trying my hand at different crafts. There's usually a story to share about the things I make.

  1. Yes please make it a regular feature:)
    We used to have a lovely little restaurant in the town next to ours called Bread and Bits of Ireland. My mother (who has since passed away) and I used to visit regularly for scones. The banana walnut was my favorite. Thanks for bringing back those memories for me:)

    1. Mmmm…banana walnut sounds delicious! Thanks for following and for your lovely comments. I wasn’t sure whether I should try to keep my posts closely knitting-related , as I originally intended (I’m very new to blogging enjoying it so far!)
