Description: The English Rose Tea Room has been serving Afternoon Tea in Carefree for over 10 years. Try a scone with jam and cream or our much acclaimed 'Duchess of Bedford's Formal Afternoon Tea'. Better yet, sample one of our delicious salads or our homemade cottage pies. We import our cream from Devon and serve only the finest teas, with over 25 varieties to chose from on our menu.Open 7 days a week throughout the year, we look forward to seeing you! Call for summer hours.

Visited with a friend who resides in Phoenix. An excellent attempt at an English tea room, ugh e although the hats and the kitsch drapery are more a stage setting than
authentic. A mismatch of poor quality crockery lets it down. Although pricey the food is fresh
and good and the tea is almost up to English standards. Quite good with novelty value.

Yes, it's frilly. But sometimes that's just right! Great place to bring a "little young lady" too. You can get as dressed up as you want. The food is excellent and there are good choices. Service is careful and friendly. Have fun!

Eclectic place with small tables, china tea pots and cups.
I went with the scones and soup - both delicious.
The place is small so make a reservation.
There were mostly women, but a couple of men were there with their wives.
Dessert was excellent.
Don't forget to check out the hats in the back.
Great fun to wear while enjoying your tea and the staff will be happy to take your picture.

A delightful tea house in Carefree, AZ, who'd a thunk it! The atmosphere is very English with proper English china tea pots, and mismatched tea cups. The dining room is cozy and you definitely need a reservation. We enjoyed the traditional high tea, consisting of tea sandwiches, light and delicious scones (with cream and jam) and petits fours. Wonderful selection of teas. If you wish there is an array of hats for patrons to wear while dining to put you in the proper mood. Next door they have a shop with a variety of English memorabilia that is fun to brouse.

Proper English tea in proper English tea pots served in proper English china tea cups. A great selection of appropriate tea sandwiches and sweets and even a hot entrée or two. How delightful. How very civilized. There's even an assortment of hats for young ladies to wear while taking tea and some for their Mums too. Service has always been excellent as one might expect. This is a favorite place to stop, smell the roses, and just take a moment to enjoy life in a proper English Tea Room.
