Enjoyed afternoon tea here. Waiter was very pleasant and cordial, keeping with the ambiance of the place. Good food and tea. Two adults and two teenagers ate for $155. Pricey, of course, but expected given the history and ambiance.

High Tea in the drawing room, is a lovely experience. The food is well prepared and sumptuous. They have candied rose petals. The tea selection is wide and varied. A must!
