Burr’s Two Fingers to Clements Tour of Cafes, Episode 10: The Bay Tree

Posted by Philip on August 28th, 2009 — 8:31pm

Episode 10 of Burr’s Two Fingers to Clements Tour of Cafes took us all the way to the outskirts of the Greater Belfast area – The Bay Tree, High Street, Holywood.

The Bay Tree’s cinnamon scones are in fact the best in the UK according to the BMW Good Food Ride. Does the Good Food Ride actually have a category specifically for cinnamon scones? Who knows. Unfortunately, UK’s best cinnamon scones were sold out (naturally), so we had to settle for other baked goods that I assumed were not the UK’s best. They were still pretty good though.

We really liked The Bay Tree. It actually wasn’t expensive and served very good quality food and drink. I certainly enjoyed my non-UK’s best wheaten date scone. Here’s your video review…

    I love these reviews. The one you did in tchaiovna may be their last if the developers have their way on otago lane. Joni Mitchell would have something to say about that i’m sure. Great choice of music in the video too. I would also point out that their seems to be an imposter who has infiltrated your blog to write a post below this one. I’m sure you can handle it.

    Yeah, that is a shame about Otago Lane. Hopefully if it happened they would relocate, however, it is such a nice location. We could go to the other Tchai-Ovna in Pollokshaws. But then you’d have to go to Pollokshaws.

    The music jingle makes me laugh. I in no way think it adds anything to the video apart from making me laugh. Self indulgence.

    Can I put out a semi-spoiler and report episode 10 as episode 11? Episode 10, shot on location in Manchester (early ’09), is in the can and (hopefully) in post… stay tuned??

    Don’t you have some SP strips that we still need you to draw? You probably do. I’ll do the Manchester review when you get those done.

  5. CDB

     I’ll trade you one sp strip for the review. Fair?

  6. Philip

    You must have at least three or four on the back log.

  7. CDB

     I, unfortunately, have no SP strips on file. If you do, please email.

    Haha, must say I love the wee jingles that have been thrown in, almost feels you should have someone with maracas appearing and shaking them.  Nice editing.

     Im not going there. It smells in that part of town. Of shit.

    I think Jonny Baillie has let something slip in the title of his last post. Perhaps it is more suited to a dedicated S&M and sexual depravity thread Jonny. Children could be reading this. <Winking Smiley Face>.

    That is quite an unfortunate title.

    I had to do my "community diagnosis" project in first year in Pollokshaws. It was literally the most depressing part of the UK I have ever been to. The amenities they have included a tiny shopping mart, a green grocers, two "hot chicken bars" and a pub. The skyline is dominated by council flats which are disgusting inside.

    I don’t really know too much about it so it’s misinformed of me to slag it off. All I know is what people say and that really aint good. One thing I can say is that I was getting the bus back home from Pollokshaws after a night out the previous evening and I saw a banner outside a pub which said ‘Pint and full sunday dinner – £2.99’. I love a bargain but sometimes the price can be so low that is scares people away. I did not consider getting off the bus for a second.
