My wife and I hosted a birthday party for my daughter and 7 of her friends. The menu is surprisingly varied with not only tea sandwiches and scones, but delicious soups, sandwiches and chicken pot pie. Our server Katie was very friendly and professional. This is a great destination for everything from a traditional English tea to a family celebration.

A friend took us here for afternoon tea while we were visiting the area. Quaint tea room with a wide selection of tea and scones. Wonderful experience!

Went to Taste of Britain expecting a rather stuffy old lady tearoom, but was so pleasantly surprised. Our tea was delicious, and our server was perfect (British accent, can't remember name sorry!) We enjoyed the tea sandwich selection, each one perfect, and the soups and salads were terrific. Yes, it was mostly women there....but that's just the men's loss. This... More

This restaurant had it all. Quaint atmosphere, lovely decor, and superb food and tea. With a full menu of intriguing entrees and sandwiches, I still needed to get the afternoon tea (as did my friend, and we saw quite a few of them go out while we were eating there-- almost every table). For $20 each, you each get a... More

Step back in time and enjoy the sight,smells and service. Great tea, of course, but delicious food too. Had the squash soup, Earl Grey Cream tea and scones. More time is required for British favorites.

After a few less prominent locations, the Taste of Britain, an English tearoom, is now firmly established and a popular spot in a cozy corner of the Eagle Village Shops. It is a delightful place to have tea and scones, or a full afternoon tea, and to chat in a comfortable atmosphere without the noise and commotion now so prevalent... More

I went to a taste of Britain yesterday. The place was busy being a Saturday and a damp and rainy day. They have a section when you enter that sells British goods like chocolate, jam, teapots. My friend and I enjoyed a pot of Scottish Highlands tea curried chicken salad, and cottage pie. We finished with shortbread and Eccles cake.... More
