Went for high tea with a good friend and enjoyed this spot so much. The service was spot on and the food was delish. I can't wait until I can get out there again for another wonderful afternoon! I'd recommend this spot to everyone!

The tea service is exactly what you expect at a high tea luncheon..Delicious sandwiches, scones, jam, clotted cream, cookies, desserts, and of course, your choice of tea. Great for children's parties as well as adults. They provide dress up hats and boas.
