The best scones....ever

I have enjoyed afternoon tea there. I want to focus my praise on the scones. They are sooo good. I enjoy trying each monthly featured scone. Each one that I have tried has been delightful. Whenever I eat a scone, I compare it to A Taste of Britain.... and they have not been surpassed yet!

It is delightful to watch this establishment grew from a small place that served traditional British food at a farmer's market to now a full-fledged British tea room with great ambience for relaxing and pleasurable afternoon tea at Wayne PA. I have been a customer with A Taste of Britain close to 15 years at their various locations on the... More

We had a wonderful time on Mothers Day. Our tradition has been to order full tea for Christmas Eve to enjoy at home before church so this was our first time for Mothers Day. We had a 4 year old who is very fussy and an 8 year old - both enjoyed the kids special but I think they would... More

We were at the Devon Horse Show and found this place not to far away. We really enjoyed having afternoon tea. The tea sandwiches we delightful and the coconut chocolate chip scone was fabulous. Atmosphere was pleasant. We'll be back next year.

We have been shopping around for a good tea room to take my neice and her daughter when they come out from Pittsburgh, and were delighted to find that this is the perfect place. The decor is lovely, with a hammered copper ceiling, hardwood floors and nice tables, but not at all chintzy. The full afternoon tea, at $18, was... More

Had a wonderful lunch with my daughter while she was home for Christmas break. Excellent service, delicious freshly made food, and enjoyable atmosphere. It was lovely to take a break and enjoy tome together. Wait staff was extremely helpful and accommodating of requests (extra lemon curd).

Went for an early birthday celebration. The full afternoon tea was amazing! Great raisin scone and delicious tea sandwiches and dessert. Added the soup of the day, a great corn and red pepper soup. I would definitely go back! Denise, our server, was very attentive and pleasant.
