Perfect ladies lunch!

Visited my hometown of Lynchburg this spring and had a lovely lunch and a hot pot of tea with my mom and grandmother. The curry chicken salad on the bed of greens with the onion scone was soo delicious. We rounded off the meal with the scrumptious, warm gingerbread cake with lemon curd. YUM! Hope... read more

What a treasure this place is! A truly lovely afternoon experience....wonderful fresh, hot, homemade strawberry vanilla scones with clotted cream and strawberry preserves and a piping hot delicious pot of tea served in a delightful tea room atmosphere.

My boyfriend and I went here for the first time today and we loved it. I loved the quiet, relaxed atmosphere. I work in a restaurant and I know that most of the time a server just wants to turn the table over to make more money but we never felt rushed here. The server was there when we needed... More

I always love going to the Ploughcroft Tea Room! It truly is authentic, British style tea time! The owner is actually British and she is a delight to talk to. The place itself is small and cozy, I think the max capacity is around 40 people. And it is decorated with antique furniture. The tea cups do not match, they... More

This is a taste of bygone days. A real treat with a taste of the Old Country. A hodge podge of china tea cups and saucers tease you with thoughts of old timey fine dining when the real china comes out. Besides the wide selection of teas the tasty finger sandwiches, scones and cakes make this experience a delight for... More

My wife is a Scot, so let's just say the food served here is as authentic as you can get in the states. The variety is good and they know customer service! Try it, you'll be glad you did!

This little place is a nice respite from shopping, or just to catch up with a special friend. I came here with my daughter a few times when she came to visit so that we could sit, have a pot of tea and talk. The tea is good, the atmosphere is comfy, sort of like going to grandma's house, and... More

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.
