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

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.

After a satisfying surfeit of seafood by the seashore, Italian lunches, and hearty breakfasts with a double side of Southern hospitality, it was a refreshing change to visit Willows. As mentioned in other reviews, the dining area was light, spacious and "British". The menu was a little different, with offerings such as unusual teas, Bangers & Mash, Ploughman's Lunch and... More

A tea room which replicates the real thing in Britain. great service and choices of all day lunches, snacks and "Light Bites", sandwiches and properly made teas - they provide a small sand hour glass set to let you know when the tea is ready. A great experience I would recommend to anyone especially those Brits visiting the area. They... More

My mom and I like to come here for lunch. It is a nice place to come for a leisurely dining experience. We sip tea, talk, watch the world go by outside and relax. You can have a nice light meal and still have room for a pretty dessert. If you've never been to a tea room, this is the... More

The ambiance of Willows is to die for---I would worry about anyone who didn't smile at first glance of it. The staff was another matter when a coworker and I tried it for lunch on a weekday that they were about half full. After sitting unattended for a few minutes we ordered the special from the chalkboard. A bit over... More
