All Fun At Fanny’s

Fun At Fanny'sDespite the typically wet Bank holiday weather, we all went off to Fanny’s Farm Shop in Merstham, Surrey. It’s a bit of a whacky place, but there are surprises around every corner. The shop was started, and is still run, by Fanny Maiklem and is an eclectic mix of food, veg and curious, and was decked out in red, white and blue for the Jubilee.

We sat in the quaint little cafe and had the famous clotted cream scones. Not good for the waistline, but apparently a calorie shared is a calorie halved, so no damage done. The rain had slowed to a light drizzle by the time we were done, so B and Sue went on a tour of the gardens and the nursery while Steve and I busied ourselves looking at all the curiosities dotted around the place.

We did manage to leave without buying any of Fanny’s famous marmalade, but that was easily made up for by the tray of newly acquired plants that Bumble bought. A thoroughly nice time, albeit a bit soggy, was had by all and it was so nice to see a truly eccentric business doing so well in these times of economic turmoil.
