I was very excited to hear that the tea room in Jordan had opened again, but upon visiting I was disappointed... When the previous tea room was open I would attend twice a month, I have only been to the new one a couple times and it is just was not that same. The service at the Crown and Crumpet was fine and the food was not bad, but they had no homemade lemon curd to serve with the scones (unlike the last tea room). Also, the gift shop with the previous owners seemed to be much more tasteful and sold sweets, home, and garden decor. Now the gift shop has all this British stuff and overpriced teapots that I have seen in the second hand store (I saw a $25 teapot in the store that Shoppers was giving away about ten years at Christmas time and I have seen many of those exact teapots in second hand stores for like a dollar!). When you walk in there is a big picture of the Queen and in their menu they brag about their ‘royal’ connections and how they spent one day with Prince Andrew. It is really tacky appears to be a shrine to the royal family, it is kind of snobby... too bad :(
