I have had afternoon tea here several times and always love it. I travel to the U.K. often and this reminds me of the quaint neighborhood tea rooms in the country in England.

This slightly mad, ramshackle eccentric tearoom neatly sums up the gulf between American/Hollywood old England and the rather more sterile reality. The room is packed with every piece of British memorabilia that someone has managed to collect over the last God knows how many years....More

A very popular tea room to which I make regular visits too. A unique décor, frilly and interesting, no two things are the same. Wide choice of food, lovely sandwiches, always an extensive choice, as well as wide choice of teas. Even though it's always...More

Food was delicious, especially the scones. Lackluster service, couldn't get drink refills. I called after we left because my mother had lost her earring -- two hours later I returned, walked right to our empty table and retrieved it off the floor. Also unsure why...More
