My friend invited me to tea and it was worth the hour drive from Harford County MD. The decor is so inviting. Dan was a friendly and helpful server. We had afternoon tea. I like how you choose your sandwiches. The oolong peach tea was delicious. I also got scones to go so I will enjoy with my family tomorrow.... More

The teas are always great, served very hot as they should be and... More

The service here is excellent. The waiter was attentive and suggested teas when we were unsure of what kind to get. I opted for the luncheon tea time, where I got my own pot of tea, 3 varieties of sandwiches, a scone and 3 desserts. The decor of this place tops it all off. Each place setting is a little... More

The Tea Room is a complete delight! The ambiance, food and service is excellent. We brought a friend for her birthday from Lewes and would certainly drive to the Tea Room again. A wonderful Tea Room experience. We even enjoyed seeing the ladies at the next table dressed in period clothing.

I recently took a good friend to afternoon tea at British Bell Tea Room. It was our first visit and we loved it. It was so special and relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful tea sandwiches, scones, desserts, and of course, the tea! What a great place to come with a special friend. Can't wait to come back!
