Very Cute, Good Value

I took a GF here for her birthday based on the reviews. What the unimpressive exterior photos don't show you is that TOB is located in a very nice, upscale outdoor mall of sorts so after you enjoy the tea, there are several nice home decor shops a few steps away. The inside of TOB is very cute... read more

To experience an English Tea party this is the perfect place. There is a choice of various teas with great black, cheery and apple teas to choose from. The savoury sandwiches and sweet cakes come in an impressive tower and the quantity is very lavish. It is a lovely place to relax and chat and the decor is very British... More

We visited here for a belated birthday luncheon. We ordered the special frittatta of the day, the blue salad and the panini with apples, brie and cranberry butter. All were fabulous! Service was fabulous. Teas were fabulous. My favorite was the lemon chiffon tea. I bought some to take home as well. Such a quaint little place with a cute... More

Hardly British as tea too strong, no hot water brought with the pot so had to ask and by the time it arrived the tea was truly stewed and not enough milk, had to ask for more! This was due to her having a busy time between the two eating areas and we could not get her attention and she... More

Food also average. Soups good. Server very kind but overworked. Room very loud almost like a bar atmosphere with the volume level. The flattest and hardest scones you will ever try and saw with a knife! Dreadful. Couldn't eat them. Won't return. Tea lukewarm too.

I don't get the hype. The food wasn't bad at all, but definitely not British. Maybe inspired by England, but not the real deal. Their scones are a joke.

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
