  • Laura's Tea Room


    Absolutely delightful! Although there are some tables downstairs at the rear of the giftshop, the main tearoom is located on the second floor and has a wonderfully light and airy ambience, courtesy of the large arched windows, high ceilings and simple but elegant decor. Two small touches that added fun to our visit: the large collection of ladies hats which guests can choose to borrow for the duration of their visit (my wife choose a 'spiffy' pink hat) and the ability to chose your tea cup and saucer (I decided on Royal Albert) My wife ordered high tea, which consisted of the most delicious scones served with Devonshire cream, followed by homemade quiche, a selection of finger sandwiches, fruit and finally a desert of sherbet served with finger cookies and chocolate dipped fruit. All of the courses were very enjoyable and we smiled our way though the entire experience! Portions in each course were modest but taken together, we found them very filling. When it came to the tea, we were spoiled with the owners' generosity. We began with a wonderfully fragrant Hibiscus tea, followed by 'Lady Londonderry', a mild but pleasingly more complex version of 'Lady Gray' and then by a pot of nicely robust 'Earl Gray'. Finally, we finished with a refreshing mint tea to clean the palate. Oh! Did I mention the peach and ginger iced tea we were served during the meal? Very nice indeed! Our server was just precious, attentive, very friendly and met our every wish and desire. My wife and I really enjoyed our time at Laura's Tea Room, everything was truly excellent and we left filled with smiles, more relaxed and deeply appreciative of the experience.
