Whortleberry Tearoom, Porlock, Somerset
You can’t beat a good old fashioned cream tea when you’re out and about on Exmoor, it just seems the right thing to do and there’s no shortage of tea rooms where they’ll serve you big fat homemade scones with a pot of jam and cream; this is one of them, warm and homely, in the picturesque village of Porlock, with a pretty little garden to sit in when the sun is shining down on us. Go there for breakfast, lunch or tea, have a Ploughman’s, soup, jacket potato or toasted sandwich, or go for something more substantial like Steak & Ale Pie, a homemade burger or a ham omelette with chips and salad.
What’s a whortleberry? They grow on small heathland bushes on Exmoor and have been harvested for centuries; the Latin name is vaccinium myrtillus, otherwise known as bilberries, huckleberries, hurtleberries, and wurts.
