Yummy!

Yummy food. Great flavor. Reminds me totally of English food. Qualifies as my big meal for the day. Great service. Love the mismatched plates and tea cups. Nice casual, but semi-upscale midday eatery. Love to go back.

If you're looking for a great time in general come downtown for some tea and fellowship with the lovely staff. Pat, the owner, is a dslight and hilarious when you get to know her. We come every week at least to enjoy some class and are never disappointed. Shop local, feel lovely, stay loyal.

Enjoyed today's visit so much! We came for a private birthday party, which was handled beautifully. The waiters were well-knowledgeable and extremely attentive and kind. The owner was incredibly kind and came out and answered our questions regarding true British tea and traditions and helped recommend what tea is most popular, etc. Even more impressive than the tea was the...

A delightful place to relax and have a cup of tea with your daughter (or friend). You are hurried and can really relax. The atmosphere was delightful - everything was delightful - from the host to the finger sandwiches.

It takes planning to experience the Ploughcroft Tea Room because they are often booked, especially on Saturdays. However, once you plan for it, they typically give you more than enough time to eat and relax and chat. (Which is why the one lone person who gave it a bad review for always being booked had a perceived bad experience, but... More

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

If you have an hour or two during the week or on Saturday, and you wish to enjoy great food and tea, in room that seems right out of and English village, the Ploughcroft Tea Room is a terrific experience. We take friends from out-of-town whenever we can do so. Be sure to call ahead to make reservations. We gone... More
