Unique, elegant setting for a lovely and delicious lunch. Homemade chilled soup, scones, and of course, the long list of teas from around the world. Service was perfect, as well!

This is a fantastic restaurant. The atmosphere is beautiful, the food is great and the service is very good. They serve a "tower" of food, small sandwiches, scones and sweets. We asked for a vegetarian version which was no problem, and very good.

Lovely decor, great tea selection. Feels like you are transported to England from lovely Bridgton. The cold soups are always a delicious treat on a hot summer day. Went for a girls day out on a rainy day. What a treat.
