“Enjoyed High Tea and then a Castle Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

My 21 year old daughter and I had a very enjoyable High Tea with a scrumptious four-course meal! Our server was fun and the food was terrific. Was a bit disappointed that while it was high quality tea it was served bagged and not loose leaf.

The self-guided castle tour was intriguing and features a fabulous fire-fighter museum in the bsmt. Would recommend for all ages as they have a special fun menu for younger guest.

If it's the weekend make sure you call for reservations as it's a small room that also serves later lunch and books up quickly.

“Can't wait to go again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

The tea room in the castle is wonderful. I went with several close relatives recently and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff, our waiter's name was Daniel, was very contientious. I have a nut allergy and he was very helpful inaccomodating for that. He was so sweet! The tea and the food were both excellent and the ambience of the tea room itself was very beautiful and serene. I cammot recommend this place enough, everyone was so kind and no matter what we were served it all tasted great.

This is something to do when you really don't have any other option. It was great to know the historical facts about this place and done what creepy. The self your doesn't take long and it is wonderful just looking at the history right in front of you.
