Devonshire tea at Fairfield Boathouse

Are there three things which go together better than scones, jam and cream?

Are there three things which go together better than scones, jam and cream? Not in my culinary experiences. A Devonshire cream tea is just about my favourite thing to eat and when you can enjoy one by the river, life is just about perfect.

Fairfield Park Boathouse & Tea Gardens, north of Melbourne’s CBD, offers the chance to relax by the river on a warm sunny day, or cosy next to the log fire on those notoriously cold Victorian winters. Here, I have spent many a happy Sunday afternoon nibbling on a scone with jam and cream and I’m reliably informed that the breakfasts are pretty delicious too.

You can make the afternoon a real treat with a glass of sparkling wine, or if you’re there during summer time, be sure to catch one of the free performances from the amphitheatre. And don’t forget, if you’re a little more energetic than me, you can even take a boat out on the river.
