Very English Tea House

It was the perfect place for a late afternoon cuppa tea and a little something sweet after getting off our Lake Dora boat tour.

Breakfast is not their forte- very dry over cooked bacon, but eggs and grits ok. Crepes were to my honey's liking. Nice selection of teas. For the price, breakfast was not special. But I bet they do afternoon tea with the best of them. That is what they do best.

Windsor Rose has always been a favorite of ours with high quality food, service and cooking, but their Italian night was very disappointing. The whole night seemed very disorganized and not up to their usual standard. They had a special menu for this night with what I understood to be a guest chef. My NY Strip tasted grainy and was...

I think that you have totally misunderstood the "event package" for our dinner shows. The price of your entree comes with a choice of appetizer, soft drinks, coffee, or tea of your choice with unlimited refills and the entertainment for the evening. The menu was available before you made the reservation and it does not mention bread on the menu;... More

Three of us ate here today....I was excited to find an "English" Tea Room on vacation but ultimately disappointed in my lunch. I ordered the leek and spinach quiche with side salad which was recommended here on Trip Advisor. When it arrived it looked dried out but I hoped for the best. Unfortunately, it was and I should have sent... More

You were lucky to get into our restaurant as we have been sold out for four days over Mother's Day weekend. Reservations for Friday, Saturday, Saturday evening, "Italian Night" and Sunday had been sold out for at least two weeks in advance. The Spinach and Leek Quiche has alot of spinach in it so the spinach at the top is... More

Very authentic tea room at a great location in Mt Dora. Good variety of teas but food was a little bland.

This is a recycled review from 2014--I answered it then. We have plenty of spices to add to any dish, but most of the customers do not want spicy...all you need to do is ask for the seasoning you would like to have on your dish. More

Once again, a lovely, entertaining afternoon at the Windsor Rose. Marsha and Paul refuse to be done in by the construction, so they "kicked off" Downton Dora with Petrina, a costume and hat contest, and Downton Abbey trivia. My sister and I shared the Marlborough Tea for One and the Plowman's Lunch, which was perfect light afternoon faire. Petrina was... More

Had a great time at the tea room, we stopped in just for tea and a dessert! The desserts were wonderful as well as the tea! I even purchased a tea and saucer set! Very cute place with nice staff!

We had a recommendation to visit the tea rooms. Very quaint with pleasant staff. The waitress we had was from England, she was charming. I had the fish pie which was excellent and himself had the Cornish pasty. We would both eat here again and plan to visit Mt Dora in a couple of weeks .... we will try something... More

My sister and I ate here today for afternoon lunch and tea. Tracy, our server, was wonderful. They were extremely accommodating with our order - we ordered The Windsor, Full Enhlish Tea for 2, but I can't eat egg salad so they gave us the option of substituting other sandwiches for the egg salad ones. Food was sent out fairly... More

Whenever we are in Mount Dora a visit to Windsor Rose is always on the itinerary. I always order the spinach and leek pie which is delicious. Served piping hot with a side salad. Don't miss it.
