I ate here for a late lunch recently with my daughter (8) and a friend. While the restaurant up the street had an hour wait, we were seated immediately here. We each ordered our own pot of tea from the wide selection of flavors on the menu. We have eaten here before, and I think they must change some of the menu offerings seasonally, as my favorite dish was not available. Winter fare was a bit heartier - Shepherd's Pie (although it is made with beef not lamb so technically it is cottage pie), stew, Welsh Rarebit. Our meal was served hot and fresh with fresh warm bread. This place is clean and friendly with genuine staff.
You can stop and purchase some of your favorite Irish and Scottish snacks while you are here.

We've eaten here before and always had a good meal. Nice Irish food and an extensive collection of tea varieties. Always worth the trip but they often run out of specials in the early evening.

A great little place with tremendous food & live entertainment. We had a group of 15 + in town for a wedding, & although they did not take reservations were able to accomodate all of us right away without waiting. Food reminded us of our trip to Ireland a few years back & the live Irish music made us feel even more like returning to the lush greenery of the beautiful country side of Ireland. The scotish breakfast was excellent & the tea selection was amazingly diverse. This is a must stop if you are coming to Bethlehem.

We were here for a friend's rehearsal dinner and I must say the food was excellent! The roast beef was tender and juicy and cut with a fork. My husband said the chicken was just as good. They also had delicious brussel spouts on the buffet as well as other mainstream selections. If you ever need a party room that seats 50-75 people comforatbly, think of McCarthy's Tea Room. The room is upstairs and away from the main restaurant and store.
