Sally Lunn's

15 Perry St | Chester, NJ
908-879-7731 | Website | Hours
Sally Lunns Tea Shoppe and Restaurant has now been in business for 30 years, eighteen of them in Chester NJ. They are still serving up the best homemade pies, pastries and desserts that you could find anywhere in the State and their mouth watering buttermilk scones -- the recipe still a secret -- are as scrumptious as ever!

A Victorian Parlor filled with curiosities, fine bone china and anything and everything to do with tea, is where you will find your self. There are over fifty flavors of loose tea and foods imported from England, and a large variety of food including sandwiches, Cottage Pie, Lamb and Beef pasties, piled high melts and fresh roasted meats all served on home style bread.

Attended a baby shower at the Chatham location I was very dissapointed, as staff didn't appear to know basic courtesies while serving. The fact that a need for more forks resulted in the one server to stand in the middle of the room and ask, who neededs a fork while holding a bunch of forks, seriously! May try other location although hesitant based upon this experience.

I hate to be so cliche as to say 'when you're here, you're family,' but it rings true for Sally Lunn's (in Chester) where we do often chat with the Gaffney sisters and Mum.

Do yourself a favor, have anything off the menu with a pie crust (quiche, pot pie, sausage roll, etc) and a scone (expect something like a shortcake rather than a scone of stone). The teas are always excellent, the soups are delicious. But above all, the atmosphere is quiet and relaxed, comfortable for the men in our party. The waitresses are always friendly and accommodating, and great with children who have come to practice their manners. This is by far the 'British-est' of the tea rooms I visit (perhaps because the Gaffneys are UK natives) and that adds to the charm.

We went to the Sally Lunn's in Chatham since we enjoy the Sally Lunn's in Chester.

The Chatham location was a bit of a disappointment.

The tea was very good. However, the dirty cup replaced with a dirty cup was not, as was the table cloth with crumbs from the previous diners.

The scones, which are out of this world in Chester, are under cooked and don't leave you wanting more as do the ones in Chester.

The chairs were uncomfortable and broken, so we played musical chairs; and the wash basin, or whatever it was, on one of the tables definitely did not add to the otherwise lovely decor of the rest of the dining area.

The service was fantastic and the food was scrumptious. Upon entering it felt like a time capsule waiting to be discovered. I shall visit this wondrous tea house many times.
