I just discovered this charming gem today and loved everything about it. The service was excellent and welcoming and the food was delicious. I have never had such wonderful scones and lemon curd except in a tea shop in London. The extensive list of teas is also quite impressive. It is an absolutely lovely place!

I have thoroughly enjoyed Lady Bedford's Tearoom for years! Even though I moved to Georgia almost 2 yrs ago, I make Lady Bedford's Tearoom a destination every time I visit NC. I always look forward to the great tea and food selection, as well as the warm welcome from the staff! And I always carry several specialty teas home to Georgia - the selection is amazing! Lady Bedfords is definitely the best tea experience in the South!

Afternoon tea is my favorite pastime therefore I find myself in tea establishments often. Lady Bedford’s is – by far - my FAVORITE tea room. I frequently visit this tea room and I am never disappointed. Please note that for me - visiting means a 90- minute commute (one-way). Without reservation, I declare, it is always worth the effort and the drive.

The hospitality at this establishment is second to none! The servers are beyond accommodating. Simply stated, they are phenomenal. You feel as though you are having tea in your own great/living room. The food is FANTASTIC (compliments to Joe) and the tea varieties are extensive.

I cannot say enough about how marvelous Lady Bedford’s is and only wish they had a location in Graham, NC. -:)

Breakfast is my favorite meal to eat out, and breakfast at Lady Bedford's delights my heart consistently. It's not just a meal, it's an 'artist's date' because it's a chance to bask in a warm, one-of-a-kind atmosphere. The owner's attention to detail is meticulous, which communicates the message that guests are valued and pampered. There's a huge selection of teas, and I love having my own cozy-covered pot, containing probably five cups of steaming tea. Although I've been tempted by many items on the breakfast menu, I invariably return to the 'Bedford Breakfast'--quiche, fruit and a scone with butter, jam and (if requested) Devonshire cream. The often-available Kentucky Bourbon Bacon quiche--indescribably delicious! I always leave feeling amply nourished in body and spirit, having received much more than the surprisingly affordable price of breakfast! Other reviews talk about lunch and afternoon tea, but for me, breakfast at Lady Bedford's is the ultimate treat!

Variety:     Artistry:     Service:     Food:

I have visited over 30 tea rooms in the US and Lady Bedford's Tea Parlour is up there with the best of them. It's a beautifully decorated tea room, making me think I was back in the Victorian era. We spent an enjoyable afternoon there recently and the friendly staff (sisters that seem to complete each other), the food (I had the *Afternoon Tea* which was a delicious sampling of tea sandwiches, scones and wonderfully tasty desserts (my favorite was the chocolate mousse that was light as air), was wonderful. Be prepared to bring some home because the amounts are quite generous, but I loved that, it meant I could make the experience linger a while longer. There was a great many loose tea's to choose from (my favorite was the Nutcracker Sweet, a black tea blend with lovely Christmas spices)... (more)

Christmas has included a wonderful Tea at Lady B's with speaker Helen von Salzen..a perfect pairing of wonderful food and a grand talk. This is a gem in our town and one I need to go to even more frequently! It slows the day down, allows for conversation…remember conversation? If you come to Pinehurst, leave a spot in your visit for Lady Bedford!

Having lived in England, I developed a necessary and abiding fondness for tea and tea houses. I had great expectations for today's first visit to Lady Bedford's. Alas, I am stretching to give it 3 stars. Let's start with the pluses - lovely Victorian tea room in the charming Village of Pinehurst, attentive and friendly waitress, nice tea selection. On the other side of the equation, the food was beyond bland. The limited menu was expected and therefore you would think Lady Bedford could mange something delicious or at least decent for each item especially at 'boutique', speciality level prices. I ordered egg salad on croissant and a salad = $20! Now I know egg salad is not the most inspirational thing but Lady Bedford, do try again or take off the menu. The salad followed suit -- unimagin... (more)

We happened upon this nice little tearoom while touring around Pinehurst Village. We decided to give it a go, since I absolutely love tea rooms! I had the soup, I think Bell pepper and gouda cheese! It was wonderful! My buddy had a salad, which was a good size and equally as yummy. We also had their 'cream tea' (2 scones, jam, lemon curd and Devonshire Cream), SO DELICIOUS! The staff were all fabulously nice, I will definitely go there again!

Lady Bedford's Tea Parlour has a wide variety of loose-leaf teas. I attended a tea and chocolate pairing and enjoyed the many different teas. It is hard to pick a favorite, I enjoyed the The Monk's Blend and Lady Bedfords Signature Blend. The food is delicious and the dining room is elegant. Attention to detail is all around the room and the service is wonderful. I have had lunch and breakfast at other times and am always impressed with the great service and delicious food. Large menu with great tea and food options. I am so lucky to live in Pinehurst and go to Lady Bedfords a few times each month. Gift shop is great !

We had a lovely time in the setting of the tea parlor. Our waitstaff was intrusive as we attempted to finish our appetizer and conversation. A bit too rushed, though parlor was not busy. Small thing- however the pepper was empty and the refreshed ice was slim. Would have liked the owner to have introduced herself.

My sister and I were visiting the area to scout out the area for her daughter's bridesmaid luncheon. Eventhough I have always lived in North Carolina, it has been a long time since I was in the Pinehurst area. On Caroline's recommendation, we visited Lady Bedford's Tea Parlor first. Lunch,tea and the ambience sold me quickly! I couldn't finished eating until I checked to see if there was an opening for the luncheon. The bridesmaid luncheon met ALL my expectations and the bride was very pleased! The owner, the chef, and our sweet tea ladies were all very gracious and the luncheon was wonderfu! I couldn't have asked for more and it was a fantastic way to kick off the wedding weekend! Thank you all very much!!

My mom, aunt, and I took a day trip to The Village of Pinehurst today and made reservations at Lady Bedford's. We were seated in a small room off the main dining room because there was a large provate party in there. It was so lovely to be able to have tea in a secluded, quiet spot. It was like our own private tea room! The food was delectable. Very nice and unique variety of sandwiches (both hot and cold) and the desserts were finely crafted and very petite and tasty. Scones and toppings were perfect and the selection of tea was abundant. I recommend the Spiced Pear! The staff was so attentive and really took the time to make sure we were treated like royalty. I am looking forward to returning and enjoying this wonderful gem all over again!

Wednesday was probably one of my favorite days serving at Lady Bedfords. It was a very hot day, but our guest came into our cool parlor asking to try one of our special teas over ice.

I was recently visiting from California and in search of a good cup of tea when I happened upon Lady Bedford's. What a charming authentic Victorian Era tea parlour! The tea selection was outstanding, the food was delectable and the service was stellar. The owner, who was at the hostess desk, was friendly and personable as well as knowledgeable.

My daughter and I had the best ever Mother's Day celebration with afternoon tea at Lady Bedford's Tea Parlor. Since we do high tea quite often, our expectations were high, and I must say that Lady Bedford's met every criteria including tea selections (the ginger peach blossom was delicious), food quality with exquisite presentation, friendly efficient service, and lovely ambiance. We drove 1 1/4 hours to get there, and it was well worth the journey! I'm looking forward to a return trip with friends.

I have enjoyed this gem several times. I am a big fan of the Ka-tea blueberry pomegranate together is wonderful. I took my four year old on one occasion and she keeps asking to go back. Think next time my mother and sister comes I will treat them to some southern hospitality that the tea parlor provides!

My daughter and son-in-law suggested that we go to Lady Bedford's Tea Parlour for breakfast- what an excellent choice! I ordered the Irish breakfast and it was delicious. The croissants were so light and buttery and the tea was very tasty. I will definitely return when I am in North Carolina.

What a lovely time I had at Lady Bedford's Tea Parlour this morning. I have traveled the world and visited tea cottages everywhere I've gone, but none are as cozy or as accommodating as Lady Bedford's. Simply delicious and delightful!

Lady Bedford's is a wonderful place with delicious food, excellent service and such a variety of teas that it is hard to decide which one. They also have entertaining and interesting talks with a special meal once a month. If you are near Pinehurst, I would highly recommend it. It is a tea room not to be missed!

What a wonderful place to take our family! My kids (my son included) adore the special kids plates and tea or lemonade made especially for them.

Sometimes you stumble across an experience so wonderful, that you are reminded why the independent small business owner is such a treasure. Lady Bedford's traditional Tea Parlour exceeds all expectations in both the tea and food served. And don't forget the scones! Everything tastes so fab that once you try it, you will go back as often as you can. Do not miss this one!

I was visiting Pinehurst from Phoenix and I stumbled into Lady Bedford's Tea Parlour. What a gem!

The food was so delicious that I went back for breakfast before leaving the next morning. The tea selection is extensive and almost overwhelming, but the waitress was extremely knowledgeable and helped me pick the perfect pot!

The owner was at Lady Bedford's both times and remembered me when I came back. I give this little treasure high marks for a personal touch and a delightful dining experience. Next time I'm in NC, I will find a way back to Lady Bedford's.

I've been to Lady Bedford's numerous times for breakfast, afternoon tea, lunch, and just today for a Tea and Chocolate Pairing. What fun! Traditional tea room with great food, abd wonderful variety. Whether I go with my husband, friends, or alone the atmosphere conveys warmth and friendliness. Anyone who lives in the Pinehurst area and hasn't tried Lady Bedford's is missing a gem.

I attended Lady Bedford's Downton Abbey-themed tea on Feb. 19. This event represented my first visit to Lady Bedford's Tea Parlour, but it won't be my last visit! Helen Von Salzen's casual and informative presentation was wonderful, as was the food and tea. The Parlour's owners were a delight and their service exceptional.

At the beginning of the event, I was surprised to learn about how many attendees came from places such as Philadelphia and Jacksonville, Fla. for this specific event, but after my first visit, I knew their eight-hour drives were well worth it!

I am already planning my next visit to Lady Bedford's Tea Parlour and will bring many more friends with me to introduce them to this exquisite gem in Pinehurst, North Carolina!

Attended the Downton Abbey Tea on Feb 19th and had such fun. A talk was given about traditions and facts about that era, then tea was served. Food is excellent at Lady Bedfords and is always worth the 2 hr drive to take tea in Pinehurst!

The perfect place to pass the time and recover from the chill outside. The 'parlour' was aesthetically pleasing, taking you back to another time and place. The staff, twins Joan and Ann were most attentive...both on our first visit on a day when the place was mostly empty because of bad weather and on our return visit when it was packed because of a child's birthday tea party. My quiche and soup, specials of the day, were delightful. I wanted to eat very slowly to savor each bite. Kudos to Chef Joe! Afterward, we had dessert and tea, mainly to extend our stay and they were very good too. The next day, even though we had just had lunch, we returned for afternoon tea because it had been such a pleasant experience the day before. The food, the atmosphere, the staff, and the experience make me wish this place was closer to home.

My friend and I visited Lady Bedford's on 12/14. It was our first time there, and we were certainly NOT disappointed! It is a small tea room, but the quality of tea, food and service is amazing!

We ordered entrees, desserts and 'pots of tea' which were all wonderful. The tea was very flavorful and stayed perfectly warm in the unique teapots and warmers. Service was friendly and accommodating. This was a very memorable experience for everyone!

Today I made my first visit to Lady Bedford's from Jamestown, NC. The tea takes center stage at this quaint tea parlor; freshly brewed from a vast assortment of quality loose teas, there is something for everyone. A special touch is the list of featured seasonal teas; I tried one with a heavenly maple aroma and flavor that was the perfect accompaniment for a fall day. I was equally pleased with the blueberry lemon bread pudding, warm and moist throughout, each flavor balanced to complement the other without being overpowering. This tea room is tastefully appointed while still being comfortable enough to relax in. Attention to customer service and carefully prepared food round out an ideal tea parlor experience at Lady Bedford's!

I recently visited Lady Bedford's for the second time. I will be going back on many more occasions! I love this little parlour.

The Tea: I don't know anything about how to judge the quality of tea, being somewhat new to tea parlours myself, but to me the quality was excellent and there are certainly a wide variety to choose from. Earl Grey is one of my favorites and they serve it admirably here. They also have some green teas, of which I tried the Sencha. TIP (from my friend who studied in Japan): Drink green tea with dessert--the bitter green tea makes the dessert even sweeter!

Atmosphere: It's small and cozy. It can be formal or informal, depending on the party's own wishes. The tables are covered in linen table cloths but people can take their tea wearing jeans. The... (more)
