This question is for Townhouse staff: For the Tale as Old as Time tea, is there a way to put your name on a waiting list in case of cancellations? Additionally, what are your suggestions for trying to secure a reservation. Check the booking site daily, call closer to the date you would like, etc..? Thank you!
