It's Very Hot. Oh No It's Not!
It's pantomine season on the East Coast train from Newcastle to London. We try not to moan on this blog - there are so many great cafe stories to tell - but the warm water dispensed from the trolley service made for a truly revolting cup of tea. On the way up, the trolley had no hot water at all. £1.85 worth of disappointment and the waste of a Yorkshire Gold teabag.
Thankfully, Fresh Element at the Baltic made up for it with a Bronky - see tomorrow's blog for explanation.
