“Not Just for Tourists”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

I'm a local resident and visit this lovely tea shoppe with friends whenever we can. I love this place. The cream cakes taste divine, the tea selection is varied and served in lovely little china pots and the scones with clotted cream--oh my.

“A bit of England in Pennsylvania!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

A friend and I met and had lunch at Ye Old English Tea Shoppe and the whole experience was excellent. The place is lovely, the service was friendly, the food was very good, and the tea and scones were delightful!!

I highly recommend a visit, but call ahead to reserve a table! We were able to get in without a reservation, but we needed to wait about an hour and a half. It was a nice day and we enjoyed walking around town during that time, but in the future I will definitely call ahead.

“LOVELY DAY”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

My sister and I, after a morning of visiting the shops in Intercourse, happened to come across THE YE OLD ENGLISH SHOPPE quite by accident and what a lovely surprise it was! Everything, was charming--the atmosphere, the food, the way it was presented, the English china place settings, and most of all the two English women who run the place. What a delightful experience! We were so pleased! I have been to England several times , and this " High Tea" was every bit as classy and wonderful as any I've experienced there. We also loved the Navaho clay walls! Keep up the good work! The world needs more" English Tea Time"!

“A Geniune Treasure”
Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

This is such a wonderful, restful tea shoppe and tea room run by two equally wonderful owners. The selection of teas is extraordinary, the home cooking exceptional, and the decor embracing a lifting. Try the salad platters, the quiche, the steak and kidney pie or any of their delightful offerings.
You will think you're in a beautiful English garden and they treat you like family.

Don't miss this absolute treasure in the heart of the Amish Country. You'll love it.

“Brilliant Tea Shoppe & RoomA MUST STOP!!!!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

Two great English ladies from Yorkshire, great teas and a fantastic menu make for a perfect Tea Room. The salads and quiche, cakes and teas are wonderful. If you miss this place you've missed a lot.

Wonderful quaint setting and atmosphere and the delightful owners make it heavenly. Just the perfect place to relax.
