These days, the tearoom is run by Ian Burdon and his wife Carol, and their two daughters Gayle and Anna, but it was Ian’s father, Major Burdon, who bought the land and what remained of the twelfth century abbey as a place to return to his Yorkshire roots in 1971. The abbey’s significant restoration project was managed by his sons, Rae and Ian, before in 1993, Ian and Carol repurchased part of the estate and converted a couple of greenhouses into the Jervaulx Abbey Tearoom, with daughters Gayle and Anna joining the business 15 years later. By making and selling a range of freshly made food since then, using ingredients sourced locally from producers around Yorkshire, the Burdon’s have not only bought a great deal of joy to their customers over the years but they have also followed in the footsteps of the monks who originally lived and worked within the abbey’s walls. This book is a must have not only for fans of the abbey and it’s tea rooms, but for cake aficionados across everywhere.
