I have ben to the High Tea Cottage three times now, most recently to a private function last Sunday, and I believe that this establishment gives extremely good value for money. The standard of service is unique among tea houses I have been to, especially the owners Jenn and Ken, although the other staff are not far behind. As many of the contributors to these comments have mentioned the food has a large variety of options, is always fresh, tasty, and presented in a eye-catching manner. Similarly with the teas, each time I have come the number of choices have increased, with some really unique flavors, and the teas are always presented in an entertaining and informative manner. I can only suggest that if you haven't done so go to the High Tea cottage and judge for yourself. If you are not a total grouch I think you will agree it is a great place to enjoy 1st rate food, service and have a fully relaxing experience at the same time. Number 1 in my book.
