A bit of England!

We love this place. Service can be slow, but food is excellent as well as ambiance. We especially enjoy the Ploughman's lunch with cheese and salad. Of course, the Afternoon Tea is great with finger sandwiches, scones, desserts. mmmmm

How wonderful to have a real cup of tea, we are from England and can verify that this is as authentic as you can get in a different country. The tea and service are spot on a real bit of home. I agree with previous reviewers that the size of scone could be bigger but the taste was yummy. My... More

I had planned to make tea party trips with my grandbabies a tradition when I visit Panama City after my 1st visit last year. Yesterday, I had 2 of my 4 daughters and 3 of my 4 granddaughters dressed up in cute dresses ready for a Tea Party! We got there early and when my daughter saw people inside, she... More

Quaint, clean, friendly, delicious, and most importantly -- it makes one feel like they have been transported to another place. Take your time and enjoy. Put the phone down and chat with your friends and family.

Anytime I want to just relax and drive away stress, this is where I go. The British idea of afternoon tea is a habit I've been happy to pick up. The menu is limited, but that's ok. The food for the most part is pretty good. Having been to England, the food is generally a bit "unseasoned" as a norm,... More

Willows is a tradition in our family. My teen-age daughters and I love to stop in for Saturday lunch & then do a little antique shopping nearby. We have taken my mother with us as well and it's always a special time. I love the English salad topped with chicken salad & scones with clotted cream and jam for dessert.... More

Service was slow... very, very slow. Lamb Stew was flavorless ... was more like a Soup than a Stew. Soda Bread tasted like week old bread, reheated in a microwave. Totally UN-appetizing . Only good part of our visit: a cup of Lady Grey Tea.

I love the food, the staff makes you feel very welcome. It has become a tradition in my family to take everyone there when they visit. Good place for lunch as well.
