I don't know about you but honey is one of my favourite condiments. I'll take it spread over toast, drizzled over waffles, glazed over roasts, and even spooned straight from jar to mouth. If you can't get enough of this sweet nectar either, then you should visit St. Ermin's Hotel this September. Whether you are looking for a place to stay while on holiday or just want a grand day out, take advantage of their Honey Month.
The hotel have over two hundred thousand buckfast bees, with which they use to produce their own honey. To mark the achievement of one of their most successful harvests, they are running a series of beekeeping workshops every Tuesday in September at 2.30pm. Learn the vital role bees play for the environment, and find out how these fascinating creatures make honey, as well as how beekeepers maintain the hives. This two-hour session is followed by a taste testing. You can pick from cocktails (£15), cream tea (£25), or both (£30).
Alternatively, you could go for a full out afternoon tea for £29 per person. The menu includes both sweet and savoury treats including a selection of sandwiches such as honey goat's curd and duck liver on honey fig bread, pastries like lobster tart, spinach with blue stilton, bee pollen macarons, and of course, fresh baked scone with clotted cream and homemade jam.
For an extra £8.50, you can also choose from a selection of cocktails: Kentucky Krunchie, Ginger Hunny, G&T for my Honey, or a Polish Honey Passion.
