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

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

I loved that this tea room served a full lunch with an amazing selection of teas (duh). I loved that it served PG Tips from England, one of my faves! The atmosphere is why you come here. Our service was lovely and she was helpful with what to order. I will return for sure.

A unique and charming tea house that is a must to try while in Mt Dora. The restaurant is decorated in such a way that it makes you feel like you are in England. We had the Windsor High Tea which ample amount of food for two people and was very delicious. From my view of other plates that were... More

Every visit to Orlando includes time to go to the Windsor Rose in Mt. Dora (40 mins away mind you!). What a lovely, wonderful place with excellent food, good prices and charming wait staff. In over a dozen visits, we have never been disappointed!

The Windsor Rose English Tea Room has charming ambiance, excellent service, and high quality and tasty food. When we walked in we were welcomed to an intimate table for two and quickly received two glasses of water, which was much appreciated on this hotter than usual day in central Florida. The woman who took care of us while there was... More
