Every time we visit, this tea room is exceptional!

Childrens' teas are exceptional. The staff and food quality are amazing. We love Ploughcroft Tea Room! The owner has always been delightful. We have held multiple tea parties at the Ploughcroft, and we have never been disappointed. It is like a slice of England right here in Lynchburg.

Our party of five arrived about 30 minutes after the normal lunch closing time and were welcomed graciously with an excellent meal. The food and service were excellent. What a lovely find.

We were traveling, and noticed the British flag outside this restaurant while going one way, and so we stopped coming back (since we like British food). The food was authentic and excellent! Each of the 3 of us had different entrees and different dissects: we tasted each others' selections, and all were excellent! It is a rather small, elegant dining... More

We take friends from out-of-town whenever we can do so. Be sure to call ahead to make reservations. We gone... More

The tea was good and the staff was very nice and friendly. The best place to get afternoon tea. I highly recommend it if you like hot tea.

Excellent food and tea. My favorite is the Typhoo Tea. They bring a little tea pot, cup and saucer to each person. You have cream and sugar cubes to go along with it. You can get scones or real food too. A nice little place. Not the easiest to find as its on Commerce St and not on Main St.... More

The Ploughcroft Tea room is definitely a must do if you want the real deal. I had lunch there today and absolutely loved it. I had the soup of the day which was potato soup with a spring salad and a cheddar dill scone. Very good! I also had scones for dessert and they absolutely were the best scones I... More

Fresh treats from the kitchen and a hot pot of tea made a cold day in February feel much nicer! Many selections of tea are available.

Not only was food superb, but the atmosphere and the staff was very friendly and extremely classy. They treated my group as if we were the most important people in the world. I will come back again and again.

I went here for the first time today with some friends for my birthday. The place was adorable and the food was delicious! I can't believe it's taken so long to try it out, but it won't be my last! Great place for girlfriends to catch up and enjoy a great cup of tea! Loved the whole experience:-)
