More soft surfaces in the tea room would be nice to absorb the noise -- very echoey space. The food, tea and service were super, though.

Great for a mother-daughter or grandmother-granddaughter treat!

The man that served us was not pleasant or attentive. The decorum is lacking character or ambiance. Feels more like a run town restaurant than a tea room.

Our table was ready and waiting for us when we arrived. Everything was lovely. The tea was delicious and so was the food. Very enjoyable and relaxing afternoon! A memorable occasion.

I was not impressed. The tip was already added in and in my opinion often a server will not give you the best service because of that. Our tea was not refilled and I asked for water when I ordered and I never got that. We had to ask for more tea and my goodness we were at a tearoom. My husband got ice tea and the server said he could have a refill but I got hot tea and mine did not come with a refill. I thought this was strange being we were at a tearoom and all I got was one cup of hot tea. We will not be back.

The clotted cream and strawberry sauce seemed very thin/drippy. The food came quickly and nothing was bad, but there was nothing I would return specifically for if that makes sense. The china was very pretty. The tea was very good. The staff was pleasant.

There is a female server, whom I believe is the owner.... when she's there she's very nice and cordial.... Yesterday, there was a male server... he was obnoxiously rude and arrogant. I felt very uncomfortable and did not enjoy my tea. he was the only server working the tables. also the restaurant had just opened at 11:30 a.m., and every time the other customers with an axe for certain items he would tell them that he was out of it. How do you have a restaurant with a menu that doesn't have the items on it.

you should market and adversize a special "downton tea package"...(there are a LOT of people watching that show!) White Table cloths for the queen tea would be fun....
