We have been enjoying afternoon tea for years. I have to say that the Tea Parlor at the Silver Fountain Inn is the best high tea in area. Everything was perfect. The table was elegantly set. The food was excellent!! Delicious tea sandwiches, fantastic scones, individual pot of your choice of tea. Just delightful. Adding to the charm was the...

We've stayed with Pam and Jim multiple times, 7? 8? And we have a reservation in June. Whenever we need a room in Dover or Seacoast, NH, we use Silver Fountain. All the rooms are so well kept and decorated nicely, an actual historic Residence now a B&B. Pam's breakfast is terrific, starting with a wonderful scone, then specials or...

I came here in January for afternoon tea with six others and then stayed the night with my sister in the Eleanor room. Such a fantastic experience! Everyone was incredibly friendly through the whole process-- reservations, dining, the cocoa and cookies delivery before bed. Food was great throughout. Obviously a labor of love running this B and B. Would love...

A friend and I took a drive over to the Silver Fountain Inn for high tea, and it was really lovely. The Inn itself is very pretty, and decorated in a classic and elegant fashion. We were seated in a fireplaced room with comfortable, well-upholstered chairs, and the table settings were very pleasing to the eye. The scones and clotted...

Thank you so much for the 4 star review - we are pleased your group enjoyed your time here but are sorry that your soup and tea were not hot enough....we certainly would have gladly re-served them to a more acceptable temperature had we known at the time.

My wife and I wanted to take a vacation, but we didn't have time to go far. The Silver Fountain Inn was a place we've driven past many times. The beautiful house and grounds always intrigued us, so we decided to give it a whirl for our getaway, romantic weekend. We could not have been more pleased. As beautiful as...

Since the last review, I’ve eaten here several times. On one exceptionally memorable stop on a frigidly cold day last winter, I had a hearty soup that warmed me up and really fortified me against the cold. On the most-recent visit, I brought a friend who goes to Florida for the winter. She wanted to have lunch in the Tea...

It was so nice to see you two again and glad we were a stop before Florida (although I am a little jealous). Our aim is to keep the all our foods and service high for that wonderful experience that people will want to come back for time and time again:) See you soon!

We stayed in the Silver Fountain in for just one night while passing through. The character and history behind this home is amazing and worth the visit. Our room was on the third floor, so make sure you can do stairs if you decide to stay here. Room was tastefully done and reflected the age and time of the building,...

Stayed for 2 nights on our New England tour.A beautifully furnished and decorated old home , although a little ornate for our taste. Dining room wouldn't have disgraced "Downton Abbey"', where Pam serves "English style" afternoon tea to non-residents and an excellent breakfast to residents. Our bedroom was on the top floor and had a very high bed, almost needed...

6 of us had lunch here on Saturday. The food was delicious, apple & cheese Panini was my favorite. The scone with Devonshire cream & lemon curd was to die for.
