I was a little dissapointed to find out that the White Dove only takes reservations. So since my father and I were dropping in we were had to wait almost 2 hours since that was when we were told would be the best time (even though it didn't appear there was anyone sitting in or who had reserved the only table for two in the entire tea room). But it was okay once we actually sat down. The price was fitting for the food recieved, but I wouldn't say it was the finest tea service I have had. I would consider visiting again when in town and at the request of others, but I'm not sure if I would travel a long distance for the White Dove.
I went to their afternoon tea service yesterday and found the atmosphere to be rather enjoyable. The food itself had delightful mixes of flavours I haven't had in prior experiences with afternoon tea. Though I did find that most of the desserts were far too heavy for me and I was only able to take a nibble from each one.
