Nice tea room, We had lunch, salads, 1 soup, and sandwich. Full tea was available, we opted for just lunch. Wait staff were attentive, manager/owner came around to ensure we were happy with meal. Great service, nice people

I'm so happy to have found this little jewel in my new home town. Way to go Lynchburg and Ploughcroft Tea Room! I've had the chance to enjoy tea time at a couple of famous places (the Empress Hotel in Victoria and the Williard Hotel's Peacock Alley) and this one can certainly compete with them and sits at a much...

We found the Ploughcroft Tea Room by chance and are SO glad that we went in. We really enjoyed our English afternoon tea (usually served with dainty sandwiches with sweet treats). In particular, the Cream tea with home made sweet fruit scones with jam and English Devon cream were delicious, as was Pat's home made lemon curd. With friendly service,... More

Went with a group of friends for lunch and we had an amazing time. Such a cute place and you feel like you're in England having afternoon tea with friends. Great place and friendly staff. Reasonable prices. Will definitely go back.

My husband and I visited Lynchburg for the weekend and were delighted when we happened upon the Ploughcroft Tea Room! The owner is from Dover England and understands how to prepare a perfect afternoon tea. She is the perfect hostess and her staff are delightful. The Tea Shop is lovely, inviting and decorated with antiques. If you are in Lynchburg... More

You don't have to go across the pond to experience authentic British food. If you are looking for an unique time go to Ploughcroft. Please make a reservation because it's a very popular place. Tasty lunch, great tea, and lovely finger food. My friends and I usually go for afternoon tea. Wish I could make it to one of the... More

This is a great place to relax and grab an afternoon snack. I split a pot of tea and some scones with a friend for under $10 a person. The scones were delicious and came with several types of spreads. I would recommend making reservations if you can; they do fill up during peak times.

Lynchburg now has two T-Rooms, this one and The Texas Tavern. When the men say they are going to the "T" room, we know which one. Our wives are making things a mess by calling this place "The Tea Room." My wife loves this place and goes here to relax and to grade student's papers. I go and love the... More

This is hands down my favorite place in Lynchburg. I go as often as I can. The food is delicious no matter what item and I've pretty much tried them all.
