I have been here multiple times and always been happy. It is truly a classic tea room, and there are so few left that it is a treasure.
The atmosphere is wonderful. Quaint and antique, filled with teacups decorating the walls and shelves. And though it definitely has a feminine flourish, the food is so good mean and women alike love it here. Unlike most tearooms, bringing a husband or boyfriend along isn't out of place. The menu offers a huge variety: combination tea and food options, similar to most tearooms, with tea sandwiches, quiche, salad and desert. However, it also offers heartier options like chicken pot pie, or full sandwiches and soups. Scones and other baked goods can be ordered separately or as part of a tea combo. The menu truly offers something for everyone- male, female, adult or child.
Every member of the staff is quite knowledgeable about the menu, and the town, as well as always being very polite. They try to maintain a certain etiquette within the tearoom to fit the elegance of the establishment and the ritual of sitting down to tea itself. However, they are by no means too presumptuous, they just want everyone to have a good time and experience and old fashioned tearoom.
