Great dainty tea sandwiches.

This spot is just right to sit back and have a great pot of tea and feeling English. The sandwiches which accompany the tea are so tasty.

Eclectic decorations, very comfortable. Regardless which way you decide to order, there are great choices for sandwiches, soups, and especially the teas! Nice place just for lunch, but really great for special occasions. Reservations are a must!

I have been to British Bell many times. The victorian atmosphere, china cups, tea strainers, etc., is like high tea in London - but not as stuffy! The food is always excellent whether we order high tea or lunch items. I frequently come here with friends and my goddaughters absolutely love it. When they were younger the princess tea was...

The British Bell Tea Room is beautifully decorated and the intimate setting is perfect for enjoying High Tea. The scones, lemon curd, jam and clotted cream are worth the trip and there is a huge selection of teas from which to choose. My three year old niece loves the experience and we use to go once a month. However, the... More

My friend and I enjoyed an afternoon of high tea at the British Tea Room in Newark at Peoples Plaza. It was an awesome experience. It was my first time there and I can't wait to return again. The service was excellent and the food was too.

Grammie (me)and my 4 grand-daughters (Laura, Elise, Natalie & Jillian) annually go to "tea" together to celebrate our birthdays!! We have had this tradition since they were four yrs. old. The British Bell was a great find, a wonderful experience. The new owner is so sweet and caring about detail and being sure we enjoyed our visit. The food is... More

We happened to chance upon this elegantly cozy tea room in one of our restaurant searches. Although the first look at the place will not blow you off your mind but once you enter the place, you will be pleasantly surprised to differ with your initial notion. This place is indeed a paradise for tea loving people. Their high teas... More

Variety of items on menu coupled with extensive selection of teas will make this a regular spot for a calm and relaxing day! Tried the 3 of their tea sandwiches - smoked salmon will dill cream cheese, poppy seed chicken salad, and turkey, cranberry and got cheese. They were all delicious that it's difficult to pick a favorite! Fresh ingredients... More
