I'm a fan of beer battered chips but perhaps not when supping English Breakfast from a pretty china tea cup. Call me old fashioned or traditional but I think I'd have preferred it if Runya was either a tea room or a cafe. For me Veuve and chips is something I do when camping and not what happens in St Collins Lane!
The tea itself was reviving. I chose the strawberry and vanilla frasiere and it was a light sponge with berries and cream. My companion had the cheesecake and it was a bit cloying. The base was the best part. All nice enough but we don't feel the need to revisit. Brunetti's, Hopetoun are better choices.
