My husband and I love tea rooms and we travel often. We always search teamap for a local tea room (or two) if we are traveling for work or pleasure. L.S. Ayres Tea Room is perfect for a cafeteria 'feeling' lunch; but it is not a tea room. I was quite disappointed as the 'hours description' noted by reservation only. I called a week in advance for a Friday afternoon 'tea'. Only to find out that they only serve tea on Sundays. Or rather, they have tea time only on Sundays. Upon making my reservations, I explained I was visiting for a wedding. No explanation. I invited family members and friends to tea only to have an average lunch...at best. However, one of the attendants recommended a historic Canterbury Hotel after we expressed our disappointment. Needless to say we had already received hot water for our tea and decided to not to be rude and leave...regretfully so. Great for lunch....not so great for the tea experience.
