Had been a while since last lunch at A Taste of Britain. The spinach salad was a very small portion. My sister said her sandwich was "okay, nothing special." The pots of loose leaf tea were pleasant but barely yielded a cup and a half each. The bread pudding was quite nice, warm and not too sweet, accompanied by fresh... More

This place is a gem. The food is very good and the menu changes slightly every so often. They have many many selections of teas to choose from, and you can buy any of them to go (tea leaves...) they also have a nice selection of items to take home, from speciality food items, tea pots and spoons, and lots...

Had a lovely and peaceful lunch here. Typical tea house with tea sandwiches. Loved them. I would say that this place is for women only, unless a gentleman likes ladylike food.

Want something different? Don't hesitate to try A Taste of Britain. Here they take their tea seriously - many selections can be had including black teas, white teas, green teas, and herbal teas as well as seasonal offerings. But this is also a fun place to have a lunch with enough choices to make it difficult to decide. They have... More

Service was good, sandwiches were great. Scones were very dry, that was disappointing. Very nice atmosphere, very noisy, Went with a group for lunch and we were not rushed at all even though there were ladies waiting for a table.

As a Brit living part-time in the US it's a breath of fresh air to find a place that does 'proper' English tea rather than the watery Liptons you are usually served here. Lovely little restaurant/tea house, decorated in British style with chairs and tables rather than squishy sofas you can't get up from and a good range of British... More

Stopped by with a friend for "tea for two." It was crowded so make a reservation. The tea was served properly; loose leaf, strainer, china pot, cup, saucer, the works! It was excellent and the service was good. So, why not 5 stars? It was uncomfortable. I think tea houses should have at least a few cozy chairs and seating... More

As a regular diner at this restaurant it is a delight to rate it as my all time favorite place to have a lunch date with a friend or family member. This is a delightful tea house with british inspired foods and drinks. The sandwiches are always fresh and delicious as well as creative. You will not find a better... More

Beautiful English shop with wonderful inventory of traditional English foods. Cozy tea and bite to eat area but plan ahead for seating. Accommodates gluten diet restrictions. Under a new owner for about a year or so who is warm and accommodating. A wonderful little corner get-a-way for anyone wishing for a moment and taste of England.

I stumbled on this restaurant last year while checking out the great boutiques in Eagle Village Shopping Center on Rt 30 in Wayne. It was a cold day, and my friend and I were starving and freezing after walking the shopping center looking for spring clothes. We stopped into A Taste of Britain thinking we'd get some tea and warm... More
