This place is truly odd. It is a tea shop with a dining room offering afternoon tea service, including a wide choice of teas of all kinds, half-sandwiches, fresh-baked scones and small desserts served on a multi-tiered stand. The teas and the scones are great, the sandwiches just average. The problem is the ambience. It is a charmless, very plain dining room with worn, ugly carpeting, with a small, cheesy gift shop built into it. It is very noisy, between conversation at other tables and noise from the adjoining kitchen. Walk by the kitchen through a hallway to the dirty bathroom with broken-down fixtures, and you will be really put off. Lousy atmosphere, NOT a good place to enjoy high tea. Don't take me wrong, the tea itself is great, but I suggest you buy it and take it home.
