My friend surprised me with a trip to this Tea Room. When I saw how cute the outside was I was very excited to go in and have tea. Well, my excitment ended at the front door when we we told 'Go away we are closing soon and there is no room for you anyway'. I was shocked to say the least. Then my friend said we had come a long way couldn't we sit on the patio. 'Oh yeah' was the girls response 'I forgot about that, but you can only order from this side of the menu.' When I looked at the wrong side of the menu it was jerked from my hand and I was told, NO ONLY THIS SIDE!! I asked about loose leaf teas and was told they only had tea bags!!!! What kind of tea room only serves tea bags??? No bone china cups or pots here, just white heavy coffee cups and pots with the tea bags still hanging on the out side!!! We were then asked if we would like out tea heated because it was rather cold out and we said please and to our horror the girl poured from a coffee pot some luke warm water and over filled the pot and lucky we were outside because the water went everywhere. The waitress had NO knowledge of tea and could of cared less if we enjoyed ourselves. Service was lousing, scones horrible, and they use whipped cream!!!!!! Only thing going for this supposed Tea Room is location and the building. I do not recommend the long drive and the walk to find parking to go to this place. My friend was quite embarassed she had brought me here and promised not to surprise me anymore.
I was told this was a lovely tea room by a friend, and I must say, that I think my friend has lost her mind!! It is horribly dark and dusty with a musty smell. There were cob webs every where one looked. The cups were dusty. The food was soggy and old looking. Tea pot was served with a cozy over it and I made the mistake of looking underneath at the pot!! OH MY GOSH, I saw three different colors of tea splashes on the sides, so just how often are the pots washed????? How this tearoom is ranked #19 of 259 tea rooms is just beyond me. The service was awful and very slow on a week day. Beverly I believe is the owner, and she is not a pleasant person, maybe you should retire and let someone that can smile serve the customers. What a grouch!!! And making us walk through that so called gift shop to enter tea room was just to much, I've seen better gifts at the 5 and dime. I WILL NEVER GO BACK!!! The place needs a good scrubbing!!!
