Even if you are not staying at the Inn, here's a great chance to see it's lovely porch, parlor, china collection(s) and dining room where tea is served. Also, you'll have an elegant real deal English tea with delicious food.

Barbara was wonderful. The tea was perfect. The food was delicious. We weren't staying the night, this was our first visit, and by the time we left we felt so attached to our hostess. Would highly recommend!

You don't want to miss having tea at Channel Bass Inn. Barbara and David are a delight and so is the four course high tea. Sandwiches, homemade scones and desert. Plus tea. You won't need to eat again for hours.

I've seen them in there before. There is not official menu, so if they're picky eaters, they may not enjoy as much as the adults
