After a few less prominent locations, the Taste of Britain, an English tearoom, is now firmly established and a popular spot in a cozy corner of the Eagle Village Shops. It is a delightful place to have tea and scones, or a full afternoon tea, and to chat in a comfortable atmosphere without the noise and commotion now so prevalent... More

I met a friend for lunch. We both enjoyed my favorite tea, lemon souffle! Food is always great and service is fabulous!

Love this place! The sandwiches, teas and scones are delightful! The service is wonderful. You feel as if you are in London enjoying high tea with the best of them!

I went to a taste of Britain yesterday. The place was busy being a Saturday and a damp and rainy day. They have a section when you enter that sells British goods like chocolate, jam, teapots. My friend and I enjoyed a pot of Scottish Highlands tea curried chicken salad, and cottage pie. We finished with shortbread and Eccles cake.... More

This is a good place to get a salad, quiche or yummy sandwiches. Also they have a scone of the month which has always been very good. They also sell British food items that would be found at grocery stores over there, as well as many kinds of tea. Very enjoyable place to eat for adults or well-behaved children.

It was very cool and the tea was very nice - lot's of choices. The finger sandwiches were great and the pastries very nice. Quiet relaxed environment. Our server was very nice and attentive. Only downside was that we didn't make reservations, so even though we arrived between 2:30-3 in the afternoon and there were multiple tables open for 4,... More

Although we did not have high tea, two of us had an assortment of tea sandwiches with either a special soup or a house salad. Others in the group had a frittata with a savory scone, a croissant with roast beef and brie, and a chicken pot pie. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Our server was pleasant and very helpful.

There are not too many British tea rooms in southeastern PA, but this is the best. The owner, Debbie, took an already good tea room and made it better. From Afternoon Tea to Welsh Rarebit, everything on the menu is good. They also have a shop area for British goods (condiments, candy, crisps, china, and cakes), as well as a... More

I enjoyed a wonderful afternoon with friends at A Taste of Britain. As a group, we ordered the traditional afternoon tea. The owner shared with us a list of the different tea sandwiches as well as the scones of the day. She also shared with us the desserts to be served. A 3 tier serving tray arrived with the scone...
