I really enjoy this Place. Lots of fun and a great selection of teas to chose from. The scotch egg is my go to dish. They also host great events as well.

Being fans of everything British, visiting the English Tea Room was a delight for my daughter and I. We love tea! We found the menu to be quite glorious with a wide variety for vegetarians. We would have loved to have tried everything on the menu! I ordered vegetable quiche and chilled cucumber soup. The soup was thin and had... More

I only got to try the Mango Mist tea so, with over three pages of teas, I have to go back again. Great place for lunch. I saw that they serve breakfast so might have to try that. I just know that I want to go back. I loved all the different patterns on their china. There were 8 of... More

I've been several times and each time the food has been good. Scones are the best! It's fun to try out their huge tea selection and you can try as many as you want. They usually have a musician playing which is relaxing. It's a great place to grab the girls and go to lunch!

This is my second visit here and it's always a nice, relaxing getaway from the real world. You step into a very small, yet quaint, shop that is decorated in full English splendor where the intoxicating smell of over 200 different types of tea hits you. The service is splendid and the only overwhelming thing about the entire experience is... More

My mom and I bought a groupon for "The Windsor High Tea." We tried two different teas during our visit, and they were both absolutely delicious. We also had assorted mini sandwiches, mini quiches, and assorted desserts. The scones that we were served were incredible! Everything was lovely - from the food to the service to the atmosphere/decorations, I would... More

I went there as a spur of the moment late lunch. Wonderful selection of teas and enjoyed myself immensely on the porch sipping tea and egg salad sandwich and a scone for dessert.

The sandwiches are pre-made, so when I requested the egg salad on a different bread they couldn't accommodate. It is crowded, so most of the time it's loud and hard to move around. When you consider that the food isn't good and the place is tacky it's overpriced. I've been several times hoping for a change and it never happened.
