Always a great time to be had at the Tea Room

David and Beth (the owners) are always so delightful and accommodating. It is nice to be able to relax for a few hours and enjoy some quiet time in the tea room.

First of all, let me say the actual food was good. The tea room where we had the tea itself was adequate. My concern about the Smith-Byrd house has to do with how well this property is maintained. When I first drove by the place, I called to make sure it was still open. Frankly, the house looks abandoned! The... More

My wife and I enjoyed a quaint setting with delightful tea and scones. Having traveled Europe, the scones equally matched any that I've tasted.The variety of teas were beyond my expectation. Each person is given an index card to keep track of the various teas you have tasted.I have documented a few of my favorites. The service was wonderful and... More

Great food, lovely atmosphere. We so enjoyed visiting with the owners. The creme brulee was fabulous. I just loved the experience of "taking tea" is such a great place.

This was our first trip to the Smith-Byrd house & we were not disappointed! We (my Mom, my Sister & myself) love tea rooms but unfortunately there are no longer any legit ones in our area, so we were excited to give the Smith-Byrd house a try. It really was fantastic! It's in a beautiful old Southern home (which is... More

Along with 6 other ladies in my book club, I enjoyed the Queen's tea (More than one can eat at one sitting, but some was taken home with me.) at the Smith-Byrd Hoouse, After ordering many varieties of tea from their substantial list, we had great fun tasting just some of the many offerings there. The Coconut Almond Cookie tea... More

Dave & Beth, we have been regulars for over a year now and we love everything about your Tea Room and B&B. You are always so helpful in explaining the flavors of your teas and giving an explanation of the sandwiches and scones. Most of all, we love the atmosphere and quaintness of your tea room. We are so thrilled... More

I have been a tea room addict for several years now. For those who think afternoon tea is just for little old blue-haired ladies, please try the Smith-Byrd House Tea Room and any other tea room you can find - you will be amazed at what a leisurely "spot of tea" will do for jangled nerves or for just an...

Incomparable home made lavender cookies, exquisite taste. Wonderful range of teas. David and Beth have made this as authentic an experience of an English Tea Room as possible. They also run a B&B there. Full info on their website.
