A couple of weeks ago when we ¬†first sent out the details of the competition to our customers we received quite a few responses pointing out a mistake we’d made.

Can you spot it?

Naturally being based in Devon, we were offering a Devonshire cream tea, but we made the school boy error of using an image of a Cornish cream tea. The shame!

The difference between the two is small, but it is arguably, one of the biggest debates in the South West. Both Devon and Cornwall claim ownership of the beloved afternoon treat and while they agree on the basics, scones, clotted cream, jam and a pot of tea, they have very different views on how the scones should be constructed.
