      Unfortunately, the Wenham Tea House is a victim of the pandemic and is now closed. The Wenham Village Improvement Society, which owns the Tea House, is actively looking for a new food service operator.

      Do not expect to see the lovely presentation of a High Tea as shown in the in the internet sight picture of the tearoom! Went with my friend as a birthday gift from her. We both enjoy going to teahouses and have always found the teas offered and the High Tea sandwiches and deserts to be delightful. Not so here,unfortunity. Only 4-5 teas offered, I will say that the scone, a pumpkin with raisons, was excellent served with jam and cream freiche. On computer site you see 2 biscuit size scones, we recieved a triangular one which equaled about the same or a bit smaller than 2 biscuit size ones. The sandwiches and deserts shown on site, served on a 2-tier serving dish, includings rolled sandwiches, finger sandwiches, and a couple of other types of bottem and the top layer of deserts including chocolate-dipped strawberries mini-pastries and what looks like home-made fancy cookies, and mini-cake slices. ...NOT what we got. We were served three types, tuna salad, cream cheese and cuke, and a ham salad. Tuna, 3/4 of sandwich cut into fourths. Ham salad cut in strips, and cheese/cuke in strips, some of the bread did not taste fresh, the salad fillings were ok not great. The desers consisted of a slice of lemon pound cake and a slice of blueberry cake both from mini-loafs. Finishing up deserts was 3 small sugar cookies and one larger leaf cookie with red sprinkles on it. Very disapointing for $24.95 plus tax and tip. Not to mention, no tea room atmosphere. Have heard that breakfast and lunch there is pretty good. Might go back for that, but NOT tea.

      I have enjoyed the Tea House for many years until the scones got smaller and the prices higher. I went there for lunch a couple months ago and everything was delicious. I went again 2 weeks ago and lunch was tasty but then I spotted a hair in my soup!

      I brought my mother here for an afternoon of conversation and I couldn't have been more pleased. The service was great, the scones and desserts were tasty and presented well. I would gladly take mom back for tea again. Breakfast there is more to my liking and very tasty.

      A luncheon at the 'Exchange', which the Wenham Tea House is now called, was pleasant, and the food was very good. No Longer a tea house, the restaurant has changed quite a bit since I was last there several years ago. If you are looking for a true 'tea' experience, you will be disappointed. The luncheon menu did not feature any scones, crumpets, etc. The bagged tea was presented in a box with a pot of hot water. I remember having my first scone at the tea house, and it was a lovely experience. Honestly, this restaurant should not be listed on the teamap any longer, as it is far from the place it once was.

      What a disappointment. I made reservations for a friend and I- didn't matter. It took 45 minutes to be served 4 little sandwiches which were spread very, very thin and were less than 1' square. Muffin and 3 1' square baked items- brownie and toll house bar. A little bit of whipped cream and a spot of jelly. Did I mention they ran out of scones? Not at all what it was hyped to be. They said new chef but how hard are little sandwiches and does it take 45+ minutes to throw a premade assortment on a plate?

      What a disappointment to see the side boards gone from the dining area. I know it was to make more room for a couple of tables, but the side boards that offered the display of the tea cups and teas etc, made the atmosphere of feeling homey...I hope they bring it back..

      While not the most elegant tea, the setting is charming. The price/value is excellent. It is a wonderful place to introduce a child to the concept of afternoon tea. For a full cream tea, the amount of food is adequate though not lavish. Still, it's a great way to spend an afternoon in a lovely setting.

      I Love this tea house! My sweetheart and I have been here twice loved it both times. The atmosphere is so pleasant and lovely. It is bright and cheery, colorful, quaint. The food is wonderful, the staff is very nice as well. I am only sorry I don't get to visit more often, though I live very close by. If you frequent tea houses, please add this one to your list!

      Went to the Tea House and couldn't get tea with scones there. We weren't there at the proper time. They were only serving some lousy soup and sandwiches. Please, get out of the business of tea, as you have no idea.

      I recently had lunch there with a dear friend. My experience was truly wonderful The service was great, the food was presented nicely, and the ambience was just what we were seeking--two ladies out for a light lunch and some interesting but not strenuous ways to enjoy a few hours together. We found some nice buys in the boutique, went home with a delicious tea cake and visited the doll museum. It was a very relaxing afternoon. I would recommend visiting the site to anyone who is looking for a low-key ladies' day out.

      I attended my cousin's bridal shower here. It was like being inside a doll house, it was a wonderful experience and very different, a nice surprise.

      Staff members were arrogant and rude. They refused to seat my friend and myself despite table availability. We strongly suspected discrimination was involved because of my skin color. D. Smith B.A. Ed.M

      The experience was fair. I have to agree with the cream cheese comment from previous reviewer. I also have to add, make sure you are prepared to leave if you are there near closing. We were practically pushed out the door about 10 minutes after they were done serving. One nice thing was the girls at the table beside us dressed for high tea, hats and gloves. They were delightful to see.
