In a beautifully corniced Stockbridge room, the place is part gallery, part shop, part therapy centre, part cafe, and has a nice homely feel to it.They offer a soup and sandwich deal for £5.95, which sounded good to me. Talk of cauliflower, Isle of Mull cheddar and mustard soup sounded even better. I matched it with an aubergine, jarlsberg and sun-dried tomato panini.
Both items soon arrived, delivered by the marvellously welcoming owner. Soup and a sandwich presented on slate was a first for me. The soup bowl was very smart, too.The soup proved every bit as good as expected. The mustard gave a nice sharp finish to the creaminess of the other elements. It was very good indeed.
The panini was equally impressive with delicious grilled aubergine and nicely melted cheese. It was a firm thumbs up, once more.
I rounded things out with very good gunpowder green tea, served in a lovely china cup.
So overall, I was very pleased with Hanna Cherrie’s Teashop and would strongly recommend a visit. I’m confident you’ll be as charmed as I was by this lovely little place.
