This is the most wonderful tea room with an owner from England. Our town is so lucky to have this place. It actually helped seal the deal for me wanting to move here as I love a proper tea room and think every good town...should have one. Food is delicious, such a great lunch. Had my birthday lunch here and enjoyed a wonderful Christmas tea with my daughters as well. Our neighborhood tea was held here too, so much fun. Can't wait to go back. I told my husband I am craving the curry chicken salad and he loved the Shepard's pie as he is all about meat and potatoes which they do well. The tea service and choices are phenomenal.More

Visited here during Tea time and ordered the Victorian Tea with Darjeeling. There was 1 person managing the room and she was quite busy but very nice. The presentations was 3 tiers...2 scones on top with butter and jam, petit desserts in the middle and...open faced petit sandwiches on the bottom. All was quite tasty. My biggest complain was the price. Before we arrived, I looked at the website and it showed the price as $27. However, once inside, the menu showed it as $35. With that big of a jump they really need to update the website.More

A friend and I regularly meet at this spot for fellowship and conversation. Always so fun. We usually get a pot of tea and crumpets.

We were in Lynchburg on vacation and stopped here for lunch. Excellent food! They have an assortment of teas and many English dishes.

My daughter and I love to visit tea rooms. This one is one of our favorites. We were seated immediately and ordered the Victorian Tea which serves two. The scones were perfection with clotted cream and jam. The curried chicken salad was a nice touch...to the usual finger sandwiches. Even my 10 year old loved it. Our entire experience was awesome. We'll definitely come back.More

The atmosphere is this place is so lovely--just want you would want from a British tea room. Of course, what made it even better the day that I was there was that they were playing the soundtrack from the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice,...which is probably my favorite movie ever. The tea is delicious and served with the ever appropriate sugar cubes, and both the sandwiches and scones were very tasty.More
