My first visit to the Victorian Parlor. It was wonderful! The Parlor is beautiful, the food and tea superb, and the staff absolutely incredible. They were so attentive and nice.

I have been to the Victorian Parlor twice this month. I enjoyed it so much the first time I want to take everyone I know to visit there. The Victorian Parlor is a warm and inviting place to visit. The decor is outstanding and the food is delicious. The staff is friendly. You will learn several things about the spring Grove area. Both Paula and Darryl keep you entertained as well. I have been to several other tea houses in this area and have to say The Victorian Parlor ranks at the top! Thank you Paula and Darryl for a beautiful experience. P.S. The gift shop is an extra treat when you visit.

What an amazing place! It blew my mind as they were the kindest people I ever met and are the people you feel should own a tea house! The tea and food was excellent and we raved about the decor and the ability to take pictures as much as we wanted. I have been to many places who do not allow photography, but it was wonderful that they did! They went so far as to make us feel at home that they took pictures of us themselves and sent them to our emails. We learned some history and they were very kind, doing things personally for us and my best friend for her birthday! They even supplied us with lemonade as we are not big tea drinkers! The hats and decor were wonderful and the use of the garden and gazebo were a blessing! I would love to return again!

The Victorian Tea House is by far the best tea house I've been to ever. The decor is very Victorian and beautifully arranged. Paula and Daryl run a very nice business at the tea house. The teas are fantastic and the different courses are deliciously coordinated. Their Tomato Parmasan soup is to die for. If you are looking for a great place for a 'spot of tea', look them up in Spring Grove, PA, make a reservation and spend a very nice time with wonderful hosts.

My friend and I had tea here this week. The atmosphere and tearoom itself is very well done in a beautiful Victorian style with 2 rooms to take tea in plus the garden gazebo. A great attention to detail - especially the Peacock room ,the garden and even the bathrooms are decorated. Paula and Darryl are friendly 'hosts with the most' and give you history of the home and photos in the room as well as serve you tea. The fruit cup, scones, soup and dessert are very delicious. The scones with the devonshire cream were my favorite. They have an amazing 6 courses! The gift shop is quaint and the china used is so pretty and presented well. I would highly recommend this tea room, and I intend to return in the future. My only criticism is the lack of any black tea( we were served green peach and raspberry)and other varieties of tea. It would be a nice addition to an already wonderful experience!

We love to visit tea rooms and this is the best one thus far! Paula and Daryl are delightful -- we left feeling like family and will definitely go back. The variety of food (all deliciously homemade) was terrific, and we loved the various courses. The two teas we had were a peach tea, then a Monks Mood (not sure I'm correctly remembering that name?). Both were delicious, and gave us two entirely different flavors. The Victorian decor, the hats (we did not intend to wear a hat but then found ourselves unable to resist and thoroughly enjoyed what that added to the experience), the gardens, and most especially the delightful hospitality, were unmatched by any place we've ever been before. We're already planning our next visit and will be bringing more friends with us each time!

There was a wide variety of teas and they were all kept warm. I tried on almost all the hats I could find! The Victorian Parlor was by far the very best tea room I have ever been to!

My friends and I visited the Victorian Parlor this week and can certainly see why this tearoom is rated #1. The friendliness of the staff and the detail of the decor and presentation of food was superb. The tea and food were plentiful and full of flavor. Thank you for a memorable and relaxing afternoon!

We chose this tearoom with great expectations given that it is rated the #1 tearoom in PA. Frankly we were disappointed. The other tearoom I have visited in PA is far superior in decor, service, and quality and variety of food and tea brought to the table. The chicken soup was good. But why the scones and other sweets were brought out before the soup and sandwiches was disconcerting to say the least. We were offered a pot of tea which was already on the table when we arrived. The chocolate scone and chocolate muffin were dry. The cranberry orange scone was pretty good. All in all we were very disappointed.

- Frannie Turrell Jun 27th '13

Tearoom Response
Frannie, We are so very sorry that you had a less than desirable experience at The Parlor. Being part of 51 guests on that particular day is one reason tea was on the table when you arrived. However, your tea is unlimited and we strive to make you what ever you would desire. Scones are served before sandwiches and soup so you don't have too much sweets at the same time and give your pallet variety throughout the 6 course tea. We probably did not give the attention necessary to make sure that your needs were met and we do apologize.

I found the tea room while doing a search for a tea room near Hanover, PA. My friends and I love going to tea, it reminds of our days in England together with the DoD. The Victorian Parlor was such a treat. The house and garden are decorated in such detail, you really feel at home, and never want to leave. We loved that the owner’s attention to detail and special touches to make our visit a true experience – the hats that you can select from and wear made the experience extra special. We had a wonderful time! The tea was very good, the food excellent and the service superb. I will definitely pay another visit with my Mom, Aunts and Cousins. Thank you for helping us to have a really special day. Well worth the hour drive.

I come from Italy and my aunt thought that I would enjoy this tea house, and of course I did! When you enter there`s a tiny gift shop and on the left you find a tea room. I way breathless when I set foot in there! Everything was decorated perfectly, the silverware was marvelous and the food was delicious! The thing I enjoyed most were the hats (as the owner noticed). So many different ones to choose from! I had to continuously change them every time a new dish was brought out. And of course the tea was great! We had eggnog, cinnamon vanilla and, my favourite, peach and mango.
The food was served at a nice relaxing pace which is a nice change from the general rush here in the states. This is a very nice place and I loved the relaxing and intimate atmosphere.
If I`m ever coming back to the USA this is a place I MUST go back to!
