Quaint, charming and a Culpeper mainstay. Pat and Monica host a lovely high tea. Their menu is a classic right down to the finger sandwiches. Wonderful for a Mommy and Daughter day out. Reservations suggested.

With bone China and an assortment of tea selections dining is refined and elegant. The tea sandwiches were quite good and the scone was tasty. Service was thoughtful and we didn't feel rushed.

The granddaughters loved it when we were finally served. We were the only table in the tea room yet service was incredibly slow. Patience ran thin with our 5 and 9 year old. Our teas were delicious. The accompanying scones and pastries were lovely. Worth...More

I am answering as a customer but I would say they can accommodate up to 25-30. As for evening hours, they are a midday type of place although they are very accommodating. Your best bet is to call them. Most of their... More

Quirky tea room in the English style. A huge variety of unusual teas is available and to assist customers with their choice, a rotating stand of samples is provided on the table to have a good sniff of. We had the cream tea, which was a good attempt at an English one. The cream was not quite like English cream and neither it nor the jam were in sufficient quantity, but we thoroughly enjoyed it nevertheless. The tables are beautifully laid with pretty china and table linen. A room called ‘Grandma’s Attic’ at the back has loads of hats which customers can try on and wear whilst taking tea. Great fun!
