We ordered high tea (take out) and were impressed by both the quality and presentation. Staff even offered to provide a tea pot for our tea! The coconut cream pie was divine and (because we are nice people :), we ordered a whole pie and...family portion of sticky toffee pudding to take home for the family. If you have a few extra minutes, enjoy shopping at the adjacent antique store. All the staff endeavoured to make you feel like an honoured guest and genuinely appreciated your patronage.More

The O’Conner house is by far a highlight of our trip. Our first time at the restaurant by recommendation of our friends. The English Tea Room is absolutely gorgeous and unique in it’s decor with the most helpful and friendly servers. If that does not...bring you back the food will. Both my wife and I had the always popular Famous Quiche, it was absolutely delicious and I recommend it. We left room for dessert, I had the Coconut Cream Pie and my wife had the English Bread Putting. Both were homemade, by the owner I believe, and they were by far the best pies we have enjoyed in a long time if not ever. And don’t forget to visit the antiques as part of the restaurant.More

My husband and I have been thinking of something different for our anniversary. The O’Connor House was the perfect place for lunch. Hot and steaming pumpkin soup hit the spot for a cool October Saturday. I ordered the Balmoral Salmon with a creamy lemon dill...sauce on garden greens served with salad. Colourfully put together, done to perfection... everything on my plate was eaten to the last morsel. A slice of coconut cream pie with a pot of freshly steeped chai tea - sealed this special occasion with two thumbs up and five stars(excellent). Our genuine compliments to the Master Chef and the Lovely Waitress - Great Team. What a unique experience of dining in Victorian atmosphere with real Victorian fine China, etc.! We highly recommend this one-of-a-kind gem. Thank you and God bless.More

It's late September so it was a bonus to be able to have lunch in their garden. Because of the pandemic, they added a few tables outside and now plan to keep them. The menu is limited like most places now but everything is made...onsite and is very good. We had lemon/ginger iced tea and their homemade quiche with a garden salad. We were offered three choices of dressing for the salad, again all homemade. Service was fast and the owner/chef even came out to chat and then brought our bill. He thanked us for coming, it's a tough world now for restaurant owners. We didn't see much of the inside but were told the tables are well spaced and everyone was masked. It's a lovely place to meet a friend for lunch and catching up.More

A pleasant surprise as we stopped here for lunch. So glad we did, service was great, atmosphere very pleasant and relaxing. Good variety of items on the menu at reasonable prices. Choice of beers and wines interesting...like one would expect in an English pub. Deserts...items, finished off a great meal. Able to relax and enjoy our meal and conversation, no hurry for one to leave. Would make this a preferred stop on our next trip through the area. Thank youMore

Excellent ambiance. A lovely lunch menu with great English theme. A chance find off the 401 due to a delay. Service and food quality was excellent. Will make the detour to eat here again!

Fabulous food great service great decor absolutely loved everything about this place right down to the fascinates the waitresses wore! This was my second visit. This time my husband took me for my birthday! We had quiche with peach chutney and salad with lemon poppyseed...dressing which was excellent best quiche I have ever had! For dessert we had warm scones with Devonshire cream strawberry preserves and fresh strawberries it was a delight! Our tea was a Scottish blend which we both enjoyed. If you never go to this place you are really missing out this place is a gem!More

I found this place by chance with friends while hunting antiques in the store next door. What a find? I have since visited 3 times more and just love it. The food is so tasty, so fresh, and so so delicious. The roast beef sandwich...is really something else, but then again so are the salad dressings. I could go on and on about how wonderful everything is. Being from England originally, I especially love the decor and the whole concept of this delightful English tearoom. Definitely worth a visit and definitely worth the money.More
