Visited the tea room for lunch. The tea was top rate. However, the 84 dollar bill for finger sandwiches and quiche remnants for 2 adults and 2 very small children can hardly be justified. The only thing extraordinary about the food was the exceptionally small portion size. They advertise being open for "lunch" daily, but it's more like a snack with your tea followed by a stickup. The small portions are no doubt intended to leave room to help you swallow the final tab. The sticker shock of the final bill might have been alleviated by a warmer welcome upon our arrival, but perhaps the cool reception was infuenced by the recent cold weather. The Victorian decor is a bit overdone and the furniture is built to 18th century anthropometric standards (that is to say it is uncomfortably small - but if you eat like that every day you will soon fit).
