Tunnocks Tearoom, Uddingston – May 2009

We have coveted this tearoom for so long, but yet a disappointment 🙁  Tea was average served with lovely UHT milk – kind of expected real stuff in here.  We halfed an apple pie and some sort of almond concoction.  The apple pie could’ve done with some more sweetness (and its not as if Tunnocks have a sugar shortage across the road!).   The shop window is a treasure trove of a different world, however in the back of the shop in the cafe its a bit 80’s stylee and rather unwelcoming.   To say we were disappointed is an understatement 🙁
