Best Tea

The Earl Grey tea, served in beautiful fine china, was perfection! The scones and other homebaked items were delectable. A fine way to end an afternoon! The owner went out of her way to accommodate us and we were very impressed and appreciative!

The ginger scones are the best scones I've ever had. This alone is worth going to have tea. Barbara is delightful and sweet, just like the meal. We started off with egg sandwiches and smoked salmon stuffed croissants. Yum! Then we had 4 different flavors of sweet scones - all delicious but the ginger scone was amazing! We ended the... More

After reading the great reviews about the afternoon tea we simply had to go! Barbara the owner speaks French fluently and was very happy to talk to us in “la langue de Molière”. The experience starts with a great Earl Grey tea, then smoked salmon and egg sandwiches (I love egg sandwiches but most of the times find them bland,... More

My family (9 adults and 2 children; 10-year-old girls) were visiting Chincoteague and I suggested we go to afternoon tea at the Channel Bass Inn. This was my second time there for tea. Everything was delicious! Barbara and David are wonderful hosts. The sandwiches and scones were delicious. The two 10-year-old girls got all dressed up and really enjoyed their... More

You don't want to miss the wonderful tea served at the Channel Bass Inn during your stay in Chincoteague. It was one of the highlights of our vacation. The tea was flavorful and served hot throughout the event. Barbara's selection of sweet and savory treats was exceptional. David warned us that we needed to come hungry and that we would... More

My husband and I had tea at the Inn on a Tuesday afternoon (they offer afternoon tea on demand on Tues, Thurs and Sat - reservations are needed) and it was really wonderful. The atmosphere trends to formal, with linen and fine china service, however we were dressed in nice shorts and shirts and fit right in. The tea was... More

We had afternoon tea here at 3 pm. It is a traditional British tea meal. What that means is a ton of tea and food. The place could use a little face lift but it is quant. Barbara the hosted and cook is great. The tea was great and better than what you make with a tea packet at home.... More

All items made from scratch in the inn's kitchen by Barbara and her staff -- I'm not usually big on scones, but Barbara's are fantastic!

This review is for the afternoon tea, and afternoon tea only. It started at 3:30, not five o'clock, but then again we weren't in Dorset neither. The setting I'd give an 8 out of 10, maybe a 9 - tea sandwiches, scones, tablecloths, four kinds of jam, a slab of butter and more than a dollop of heavy cream. Your... More
