An atmosphere of warmth and welcome greets customers on arrival at the Clipper Merchant Tea House. The house itself, a Victorian Gem at the top of Limerick's Main Street, is decorated with period pieces, in cozy rooms which give permission to sit and forget the race outside.
Heather and Gary Labbe, their daughter and staff do everything to make us welcome and comfortable. We return because as soon as Heather knows we have arrived she brews our tea, exactly the way we like it. She has done this every time I visit including when I have been a part of a larger party. The tea menu is all that one could want with delicious sandwiches including chicken salad on a croissant, and fresh baked scones served with lemon curd and Devon cream. The service is friendly and very accomodating. I took my two grandsons for tea recently. They are 3 and 5. Heather served them each with an individual tea pot so that they could pour and mix their tea as they like it and have learned from their 'English' Gran. When asked, the 5 year old said, no this was not a girly place and he had enjoyed himself. What higher praise could any teahouse want? We are regulars, and delighted to have such a good place for treats in our backyard.
