I loved this place more than I can say and I am heartbroken that is it closed for good. The owner had health issues and she couldn't continue to run the place. Another company has rented the space but it will never be the same.

The service was excellent, the tea room presented nicely, and the pot of tea was wonderful. However, the tea sandwiches were dry and trying to spread the clotted cream was like trying to spread an ice cube. I, personally, prefer a plain scone so the...More
