Where to begin? We have been going to Pamela's for almost a year now and I am so happy to have such a lovely place to join with friends and family and be together with a steaming pot of hot tea and delicious freshly made food. Pamela greets us like long lost friends--or better yet family. She is always impeccably dressed--like our coming to the shop is a special occasion and she is wearing her best things just for us. The decor is so beautiful and there is so much detail that you cannot see it all in one visit--a good reason to keep going back. Then the food--oh the food! Fresh, beautifully plated, served on fine china on a table dressed beautifully with lovely linens. A pot of freshly and properly brewed tea for each of us and finished with scones and clotted cream. I would go everyday if I could! Pamela and George never fail to make us welcome. I have been to other tearooms and this is far and above my favorite one! Today was a special day--my mom, 2 aunts, cousin and sister-in-law went for lunch. One of my aunts was visiting from Seattle and this was a lovely way to spend leisurely time with her. She is originally from England and loves her tea. She thoroughly enjoyed our tea and meal. Afterwards, Pamela played and sang for us--including Greensleeves--one of my aunt's favorite songs. George pronounced my aunt Queen for a Day and read an original poem. We were there for well over 2 hours but it was so enjoyable we did not want to leave. I highly recommend visiting--and will be back real soon myself. Thank you Pamela and George!
Rose, I feel like I have made an eternal friend! What a great feeling to know that! Thank you for your beautifully expressed words...so heartfelt...like I told you...'apples of gold in pictures of silver' (From Proverbs...the first line is... 'words fitly spoken are like...)Thank you for being such a wonderful supporter of our little tea business and now a great friend. You are so interesting, and have a lot of interests, and so we could go on forever! So glad your family, and others sees the value in what George does, and who he is as a person. I could not do this without him! Blessings on you till we meet again...
