Lovey Getaway

The Ploughcroft is a great place to sit back and enjoy your tea with friends or just alone. The tea sandwiches are delicious as are the incredible desserts.

I have frequented the Ploughcroft Tea Room many times since its opening. It's a wonderful little get away in Lynchburg, VA and makes you feel like you have stepped into a country tea room in England. The service is fantastic. The food and tea are exactly what you would want. Perfectly delightful experience, every time.

I have been to Ploughcroft several times and it is my favorite spot to meet up with a friend! The food is amazing! I had the curry chicken salad and the Cottage pie which was delightful and full of flavor. The atmosphere is relaxing and the perfect place for a spot of tea!

Quite fabulous, Dahling...;) Was a foggy, rainy day in Lynchburg, Virginia...Perrrfect for afternoon tea, wouldn't you say, Bloak? My family of 5 enjoyed Victorian and Elizabethan tea servings with 2 perfect pots of Earl Grey and Typhoo teas. Our tea sommelier Whitley was perfectly poised, patient and attentive. The sweetest thing was seeing her hold my mother's hand assisting her... More

As a bit of an Anglophile, this delightful spot in Lynchburg is one of my favorites. It takes me back to some lovely spots I've visited in the UK. Food is delicious and authentic. Just wonderful!

First time here after a British friend suggested the Ploughcroft Tea-Room, and I must say that my three other British friends and myself thought that it was a wonderful experience. The lunch and service was excellent and the beef and mushroom pie made me feel as if I was home again in the UK ! Tea was so good and... More

We enjoyed afternoon tea today that included freshly made scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, open-faced cucumber, egg and curried chicken salad, and smoked salmon with cream cheese sandwiches. The ambience and decor are delightful and the owner made us feel welcome. We will definitely return! Mary M

Great service, and very attractive setting crisp white table cloths dainty china but no frills or unnecessary nick-nacks. Food absolutely delicious and highly authentic. This lady - who is delightful - knows what she is doing.

There is no denying that this is a unique restaurant with atmosphere. The food is good but not exactly great value for the money. My biggest problem is that the service is far too slow to be conducive to a business lunch - even if you tell the staff that you have to get right back to the office, there... More
