Scones with jam and cream

On our afternoon bus tours and boat tours, in our Bakeries in Bath and Covent Garden and in our Picnic baskets you will find freshly baked plump scones ready to be enjoyed with jam and clotted cream.
When you get them, etiquette is actually all about looking after other people. So, resist the temptation and offer them around first!
Then, load up your scone in the way you like best: clotted cream or jam first, as you prefer.
Enjoy your scones with jam and cream!
This really is one of our greatest British traditions, something to be proud of, a lovely sharing food, fantastic in a park, in a boat, on a bus… everywhere!
