As an outing today, we drove to Seaford, stopping in Alfriston for lunch and a look around. We were recommended by a friend to eat at Badgers Tea House, a small place originally built as a bakery 500 years ago.

They brought our tea out in silver pots, one looking like an old lantern of the genie-popping type. We went for the chunky tomato soup with bread and a huge hunk of cheddar, and a sausage panini with spicy tomato relish. We finished off with a piece of the wonderfully-soft and delicious coffee cake. Highly recommended. I would love to return for a cream tea at some point.
