I recently visited Lady Bedford's for the second time. I will be going back on many more occasions! I love this little parlour. The Tea: I don't know anything about how to judge the quality of tea, being somewhat new to tea parlours myself, but to me the quality was excellent and there are certainly a wide variety to choose from. Earl Grey is one of my favorites and they serve it admirably here. They also have some green teas, of which I tried the Sencha. TIP (from my friend who studied in Japan): Drink green tea with dessert--the bitter green tea makes the dessert even sweeter! Atmosphere: It's small and cozy. It can be formal or informal, depending on the party's own wishes. The tables are covered in linen table cloths but people can take their tea wearing jeans. The decor is done in a very appealing Victorian style. Food: All the food I tried was outstanding, from the little pastries, sandwiches, scones, etc., to the full sized desserts. I recommend the truffle dessert. Lastly, the servers, owner, and chef were all very welcoming and provided excellent service.
