The Blue Teapot – Mytholmroyd


Tonight we had a very enjoyable supper at a local cafe, The Blue Teapot. It opened last year and was sadly hit by the Boxing Day floods, but it has bounced back and is now hosting supper nights.

We popped long to the Spring one, the menu really grabbed us when we saw it on the facebook page. Three courses for £20, a bargain!

We’d not been before, but really liked the ambiance, a relaxed and warm room, which felt so homely.

We decided to share every course, as we both wanted to eat everything on the menu, shame we could not have had a taster of all 3 for every course.

Starters were Spring Bruschetta (smashed peas with mint, ricotta on bruschetta) and Vietnamese Rolls (filled with vermicelli noodles, julienne vegetables and fresh herbs, with lime and tamarind dipping sauce).

The Vietnamese rolls were gorgeous, the veg in them crispy, the herbs fresh, the dipping sauce slightly sweet and sour. A real winner for us. The toasts were good, minty, crunchy, nice pea taste, I wanted more ricotta.

Mains were Pasta Primavera (with peas, broad beans, asparagus, and pinenut crumb), and Spring Vegetable Thai Green Curry with jasmine rice. The pasta was so so good, warming, homely, hearty, very tasty. We both loved it.

This was a great green curry, sadly my wine clashed with it, so I could not eat much, a real shame as it was good, the Mr loved it, polished off the lot, would have asked for seconds if pud was not on the way.

Desserts were Rhubarb and ginger tiramisu and Boozy Chocolate Mousse in a teacup.

The tiramisu was a lovely balance of rhubarb, ginger and cream. Tim savoured every mouthful.

My pud was a chocolate mousse, the only 🙁  of the evening, one as I had no biscotti and, two, because the mousse was a bit not set, it dripped off my spoon. It was absolutely delicious though, a great cocoa flavour. I can easily forgive the mistakes.

All in all this was a great meal, super to see a local business offering such good food in the evening. We had a cider, 3 glasses of wine and 3 courses and it came to £55.  If you are local go! if not then come on holiday here and go.
