Enjoyed lunch outside on the patio. Beautiful English garden setting. Service was lackluster. After the waitperson spilled an entire glass of iced tea on my lap, I simply got an assurance of "Don't worry, it won't stain" and she was very slow in getting me a towel with which to dry myself. Slow service and not a very knowledgeable waitperson.
Good food, good tea, nice atmosphere, extensive (but expensive) gift shop.

This is no longer a tea room, but rather a restaurant named "The Edible Garden"

I prefer the original English Tea Garden, where we had a nice gift shop in the front and more of a selection of menue items...It was more quaint, I still enjoy eating out in the garden ( which they need to keep up better ) but as a regular customer, I've seen the quality go down abit since they changed the original set up. Keep it quaint, don't loose the charm just to fit in more tables , PLEASE !

The english garden closed several years ago. It is now a different restaurant.
