We always love to see and learn about the history of the areas we vacation in. The history of this area is abundant. We enjoyed learning. Loved the scones with cream and jam.

A high tea lunch shared with friends in a unique and beautiful setting. The house sits in a beautiful park with easy parking nearby. Prices were reasonable and there were a variety of lunch offerings. A very friendly and helpful staff.
