Perfect place for all ages, went with a friend and her daughter on a sunday for tea and finger sandwiches. Quite charming I must say. We dressed up and wore hats, they have them there if you don't have one. The staff was very polite and very attentive. There was singing and dancing from the staff which made my 4... More

Like they say in their website, "a relaxing escape to British tradition in beautiful downtown Mount Dora, Florida". My family and I loved this restaurant/tea room! The waitresses are so kind, and the ambience is lovely and quiet. We felt like we were in UK! We recommend a visit to everyone.

I was disappointed to find that my favorite tea room had recently closed, so decided, after reading great reviews, to try Windsor Rose. We had just arrived in Mt. Dora, and unknowingly, visited this tea room in the middle of story time, so the room was quite full and noisy. We found the service to be slow...we had to ask... More

I am sorry your visit was not up to expectations. Our story teller events sell out, in fact we were on a waiting list. The story tellers are miked so that everyone in the room can hear them. On a normal day we are not that crowded for lunch, although it never hurts to call for reservations. We are known... More

So, I was a little disappointed because one of my favorite tea houses had closed, but I had never tried Windsor Rose. My expectations were high...and I was NOT disappointed. It was simply perfect. First of all, it is one big dining room with plenty of tables and the décor is all English-themed (which I loved because I lived in... More

We visit Florida every year from the UK and "found" Mount Dora many years ago. We love to have our lunch in the Windsor Tea Rooms and ensure we visit as many times as we can during our trip. The menu is extensive and the daily specials are always worth a try. I love the Ploughmans - very British! I... More

Our return visit was to enjoy mom's day, a missed birthday, and a great breakfast. Unfortunately too many skip downtown Mount Dora these days due to on-going construction (3rd summer in a row) but in doing so miss out on this great place! Windsor Rose is run by a delightful couple: she's America, he's British. They combine both with aplomb... More

The staff at this quaint little tea house is amazing! They helped us organize a way to surprise my parents when my brother flew in from Japan to surprise them. They were very helpful and accommodating to the situation and even called me beforehand to make sure everything was still on schedule. The food was just as good, a little... More

What a delight this was for our entire staff! We were so happy to be part of this surprize. There was not a dry eye among us, including Paul! What a sweet event for the the entire family--we provided a box of tissues for the family after we took some for ourselves. More
