Did you know that over half of the Enid Blyton ‘Famous Five’ books were written in the 1940s during food rationing in Britain? Having been a massive childhood fan of the Famous Five books I would never have believed it!
Definitely no rationing here either at this delightful 1940’s style cafe in Otley Yorkshire
Just three miles from my home is the little market town of Otley. It’s the place where I shop and occasionally enjoy morning coffee and afternoon tea.
And as these two lovely ladies will happily tell you, the 1940s style of this charming tearoom does not extend to the edible and delicious food on offer.
With generous latherings of butter and double cream, this place is definitely not for Weight Watchers and Slimmer’s World followers.
