“We love McFarland House”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

The service and food is amazing here. We are local farmers and enjoy riding our bikes over there to enjoy their wonderful teas and snacks. They even dress in old fashioned dresses! Great place to visit the next time you're here in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We always leave here satisfied.

We came for tea and scones, but when we walked in I could smell this wonderful curry smell. The soup of the day was a carrot curry soup, and after smelling it I just had to have some. It did not disappoint! Of course, I had to have my scone too -- pear spice scone served with whipped cream and black currant jam. Also delicious. There was a large selection of tea flavors. I had the papaya sunflower green tea, which was served in a French press. Yummy, just like the food. And to top it all off, the setting was lovely. The dining room was in a glass sunroom with a pretty view of the grounds outside.

“Lovely establishment”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

I went with a girlfriend to have lunch and when we looked at the menu we decided on the high tea menu. It was excellent. As we did not have reservations we were lucky enough to get thier last table at that time. The service in getting our good was slow but we realized the girls are making everything from scratch in the back, no premade sandwiches. The setting is lovely there and then you can take a historical tour of the home. Check this place out if you are coming to Niagara on the Lake.

“Outstanding and Relaxing!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We came here for "Tea" (late lunch). It was beautiful, the food was excellent and the tea and service...outstanding. This was one of the highlights of our trip.

The menu had enough variation that if a person in your party wants a more traditional lunch, they can choose from several options. They also have several wine selections. Service was attentive without being rushed. We had several adjustments in our orders and the staff handled it perfectly,

The tea was served in these "press" type containers. It really enhanced the flavor of the tea.

You do not need to pay admission to this site to have tea/lunch at the restaurant so do not be scared off by that.

Went twice for soup and quiche - beautiful atrium to sit in outside and watch the world go by in the lovely setting of a park.

Great place to go.
