Good Tea Rooms
What makes a good tea room? Not an easy question to answer! Here are a few things we look out for when we're enjoying Afternoon Tea:
Unique atmosphere - themed is neat!
Matching (OR NOT) China - we enjoy the adventure!
REAL devonshire or clotted cream - don't try to get away with whipped cream here!
Extra touches - we've seen some amazing things and we like to be "wow'ed" on the extra touches - and yes, we notice them.
Fresh (not over-baked) scones - the best part!.... don't forget the butter (but I don't mind asking for it either...)
Warm, friendly, inviting host, servers, and staff. Running a tea room takes a certain personality - they're hard to find!
Special events - tea rooms that do special events really show they are on the ball (movie days, princess themes, Royal Weddings etc.)
Pricing that is reflective of the quality, or quantity of the food and/or special atmosphere. We will good money for a top notch tea party!
MAJOR extra points for those "extra touches" I mentioned above, that really sets a GREAT tea room apart from a 'good' one!
