I’m sure everyone who has a blog will putting something about the Royal Wedding – bunting, parties, THE DRESS etc. But my post is about a very local tradition Royal Bun Throwing in Abingdon & a very local cafe. When we moved to Abingdon about a year ago we had no idea about the tradition it had of throwing buns from the top of the town hall on special royal occasions. It wasn’t until we visited the Throwing Buns cafe behind the town hall. Not only were we impressed by the tradition but we were impressed with the food, cake & coffee from the cafe. We’ve been regular visitors from then on. 

Therefore it seemed only right that we go there on Friday before 4000 buns were thrown from the town hall to commemorate the royal wedding of Will & Kate on Friday. It was really busy but that didn’t mean that the quality of the food or the service slacked at all. All four of us opted for the cream tea from the special Royal Wedding menu (my mum & sister were visiting for the weekend.)It was really delicious. The scones were nice & light and there was plenty of cream & jam. It was a great way to prepare for the bun throwing. Alas we didn’t catch any buns but it was a great practice for the one next year!
