Great Lunch ..... Great Spot!!!

Had not been at O'Connor House Tea Room before but had heard great things about it, and I was not disappointed. The quiche and salad were delightful. People at the next table were having scones and tea .... and I certainly will go back and try that out.

I chose the quiche special followed by a chocolate sundae just to see the presentation, lol. The food was great as usual especially the salad, so colourful & tasty. The sundae was beautifully...

I was here last year with some friends and took my husband, daughter and granddaughter here today for lunch. They were as impressed with the food and the ambiance as I was the first time around. The staff is friendly and prompt and the food cooked to perfection. The cauliflower soup was the best. Will certainly be back again. I... More

Visiting Kingston and when looking for a Tea Room we noticed the O'Connor. We were so very impressed. Very charming room and absolutely scrumptious high tea. Everything we had was perfect. The scones with Devonshire cream were the best! We will revisit anytime we are in the area. A comfortable tea room, pleasant and accommodating services. A comparable high tea... More
