Issy and Ang go to York!


Last weekend we went to York for our friends birthday.

We were only there for a couple days, but we tried to see (and photograph) as much of it as possible!

IMG_1042IMG_6411The infamous Betty’s (York branch, obvs). Home to a wide variety of teas, coffees, and some seriously scrummy cakes. More on our  Afternoon Tea visit here.

York Cocoa House for a rose flavoured hot chocolate and chilli chocolate truffles.

IMG_6349IMG_6350IMG_6354IMG_6355IMG_6356IMG_6964Then made a brief stop at an Italian deli/restaurant to pick up some prosciutto, olives and ALL THE PAN DI STELLE BISCUITS.

IMG_6959 IMG_6961 IMG_6963IMG_6955IMG_7070Our final stop was to The House of Trembling Madness – a medieval ale house and specialist beer merchant/store. The pub upstairs may be small, but what it lacks in size it completely makes up for in decor… it’s like stepping back in time! Speciality beer by candlelight? Yes please.
