We had dinner here the week between Christmas and New Years. There were only a few people in the restaurant. It was a cold, rainy night. This was great for us, as we were seated almost immediately. The ambiance is wonderful! The interior and decor in this old house is stunning. Our server was polite, and efficient. The meal was... More

We really loves our high tea experience here. The house is so old and neat. We enjoyed looking around the home. Our server was incredible attentive and professional. Both the tea and all the food was tasty and presented well. We debated between tea here and at the empress. We decided to go here as it was closer to our... More

The house is nice. We had a seat by the window and the service was excellent. The tea was just ok. I know these afternoon teas are not going to win any nutrition awards, but it was a lot of white flour, sugar, whipped cream and we struggled to eat it all. Some more sandwiches and less chocolate jello pudding... More

The Pendray Restaurant is part of the Gatsby House (B&B) complex, and is in a beautifully restored Victorian mansion that epitomizes Victoria charm. Our party of three didn't actually do the afternoon tea, but ordered tea service and chose food items from the regular lunch menu: French onion soup, tasty and filling; chicken club sandwich, served open face; and stuffed...

This place was fine. The tea was good and the food was fine. We were there on a Wednesday so I'm not sure if that contributed to the lack of other patrons but we were two of 6 people in the place for afternoon tea. We did read a lot mixed reviews but decided to try it anyway. It worked... More
