Stopped in for the Sunday Pot Roast. Roast was tender and delicious, as always. Served with a mix of sweet potatoes, asparagus, carrots and baked turnips. For dessert, Maids of Honor, a bright, tart lemon curd in a airy pastry and topped with fresh whipped cream. Service could not have been better.

What a find! The soup of the day ( chicken tomato florentine) was an outstanding start. We both had the Scottish salmon. It could not have been better, but the delicious risotto could have had a few less calories! Tracy was a wonderful server, and the atmosphere was delightfully British. We will return!

Me and my friends came as a group and all of us had something different. Everyone enjoyed their meal but I was the lucky one. I chose the special of the day which was the Scottish Salmon Filet. It was over vegetables and risotto with a balsamic sauce. It was delicious and very filling. I let all my friends try... More

Visited this quaint little tea room today only to be served by a completely arrogant, unwelcoming, rude waitress - they quite frankly didn't want our custom and I was not prepared to give them my $ whatsoever after hearing her foul mouth swear about us! Shame I didn't catch her name (although I can think of a few). I personally... More

Please let me know a description of your server so I might address this issue. All of our servers are well-trained, and have very helpful dispositions. Are you sure you were in The Windsor Rose? I have been out on emergency family needs, but I am finding this to be so uncharacteristic of our staff, especially in my leave. More

We had a great afternoon tea here quite by chance. Charming cottage feel to the place with a number of tables. Also, a great selection of tea and beer. Loved the cottage pie and English Cornish Pastry too. Friends enjoyed the tea and sandwiches too. Cute gifts for purchase too.

The setting itself is beautiful. Very well set up and designed. Great range of teas and food. I was here with my boyfriends mother and she had been here numerous times and raves about all the food. We had the high tea for two and to be fair I have had better, especially for the price which was 36 dollars... More

Dear Jen, Thanks for the accolades. Did you mention your disappointment with your Windsor to your server while you were in our restaurant? Everything has an easy fix but in order to remedy the situation we have to know about it. Mentioning it on the internet after the fact, does nothing to help satisfy the customer or to protect our...

I love the decorations of the Windsor Rose Tea Room. The walls are decorated with pictures of the Royal family grouped by ruling kings and queens. The English pies were wonderful! I had a Fish and Shrimp pie and my sister had a Cottage Pie.

Nothing that I've expected. 2nd place in TripA? I totally disagree. Despite of the good service of an English lady, the food was HA.T.E. (Hard to eat)...

Dear Ducathe, You did not mention what you ordered, so I have no remedy to correct the situation. I would hope that the incident was brought to the attention of the server. I was out for a week with a family emergency...so I am getting feedback via internet that things did not run totally smoothly in my absence which concerns... More
