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!

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

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.

I've been going to Taste of Britain for years with my girlfriends, and we love it. It's very small, so be sure to make a reservation. The tea selection is excellent - I highly recommend their Earl Grey a la Creme - and the staff is always very friendly and helpful. Do be prepared for a longer wait though, with... More

Taste of Britain is a tucked away spot in the Eagle Shoopes (Wayne) that is what it says: A Taste of Britain. Very good food and a laid-back atmosphere defines this restaurant. Sadly, the noise level at most times is close to unbearable.
