This was my second visit. It was wonderful on all accounts both times. Food is delicious; tea choice is unbelievable; tea server very knowledgeable. We were able to chat and not feel rushed! It's a quaint, old, beautiful house with so much to look at you couldn't possibly be bored. Make sure you purchase their cookbook--so many delicious recipes to try.

My mother-in law and I went here for my 24th birthday. This was the first time I had ever been here, but she has been several times. This place was so adorable, the tea was fabulous, and the man who owns it is so unbelievably nice! Great first experience and I will definitely be back with more people!

I 've been to Shady Gables many times over the last ten years and have always had a wonderful experience. the food is always delicious, Terry and his staff are professional and friendly and I always leave relaxed and in a better frame of mind. I recently went to a tearoom in Chicago. It left a lot to be desired. I didn't feel the ambience and warm feeling that Shady Gables leaves me with. The price was double, they had very few tea selections and the food was just ok. Shady Gables is a true treasure in the little town of Versailles and I look forward to going there often in the years to come. Thanks, Terry, Bev, Julie and the rest of your staff for the pleasure you provide for so many of us.

Outstanding afternoon tea experience. Owner Terry kindly made accommodation for me on a festival weekend - I was treated to wonderful tea, delicious food, and a lovely atmosphere. I was visiting from Minneapolis, MN and found it worth the trip! Thank you!!

My daughter and I went to Shady Gables for the first time today and I could not be more impressed! They made the day so special for us! Everything was incredible, from the endless selection of teas, to the amazingly accommodating staff! In my 4 year old daughter's words 'this is my perfect place.'

Shady Gables is the best at everything. Atmosphere with beautiful background music, service with a smile and pleasant conversation, food that is scrumptious, and last but not least the tea. I could go there 100 more times and not run out of selections. My Aunt and I had a wonderful, authentic English teatime experience.

I have been to many tearooms in the U.S. and England. Shady Gables is still my all-time favorite. The owner/operator is so friendly and professional. Beautiful decor, wear a hat--it makes it so much fun!!!

My sister, niece and I visited Shady Gables on the 6th of July and must say it was a most relaxing and pleasurable experience Terry was so kind and visited with us several times. His granddaughter was fabulous. Our food was wonderful and our different teas were all so delicious. Our experience left us wanting to return very soon.

Had a most enjoyable time at Shady Gables on Saturday, July 6, 2013. The tea, food and service were excellent. Enjoyed our visit with Terry Silvey. Nice selection of tea, tea accessories, curd and clotted cream. We were three ladies that don't have the opportunity to get together as often as we would like because we come from quite a distance. This could not have been more perfect. We are anxious to visit again.

What a beautiful place!! Who knew you could find such an amazing selection of teas and such a fabulously run establishment in such a small town! Every tea my party tried was delicious and the food was absolutely to die for! I would go back every day if I could!

What a gem in this little town. Great food, tea, & service. I bought their cookbook just because the food was so good! I also took home their Peach-Berry Cobbler black tea (so good). Will go again for sure!

My mother, 2 daughters & I have been coming to Shady Gables for many years now. It's ALWAYS a treat to both make & relive memories at this lovely tea room. The tea selection is phenomenal (my new favorite is 'Strawberry Shortcake')! The food & service are superb! Beautiful tea-related trinkets to purchase! Highly recommended!!!
