I must say that on any review I do I put the English Rose Tea Room on the top of my list next to the Phoenician and my new discovery Tea Dreams. I must say the sandwiches are wonderful and so are the tea selections but this tea room excels when it comes to those wonderful scones!!!! I wish they would sell them frozen for me to bake up fresh at home. The only things I do not like about the tea room are that there are too many tables in the dining room, the desserts are not exciting and I usually get a tea cup that my finger can't fit through. I go to tea about once a week at various places throughout the valley and I sometimes I have to check everyones cup to see if there is one I can fit my finger through on the handle. Some ladies may not have this problem but as a guy this is something I always battle with... comfort in a tea room. I must say one more time.... THE SCONES ARE AMAZING!!!
Dear Jackson, thank you for your review which did make me smile! I know bone china cups have small handles...please ask me for a mug next time and I'd be happy to oblige!...and you are welcome to purchase scones to bake off at home, just call ahead so we can be sure to have enough for you!
