The country setting is lovely. Interesting rooms to explore waiting to be seated. The Tea Room was nicely decorated as was the table set-up. Huge selection of unique flavored tea bags. Those were the highlights. The pot of water was very warm, not hot. The cream for the scones tasted like cream cheese, not heavy whipped cream. The 3 assorted crustless sandwich wedges were adequate. The sweets were adequate, with the carrot cake and cheesecake being the best of the variety. I've been for high tea at various restaurants in different States. I did not expect it to be anywhere at the level of the Ritz in London where I was first intoduced to High Tea. And, it clearly was not. The other places I've experienced High tea were all far above in quality.
