I was not sure this would be my cup of tea, but was pleasantly surprised. My wife has had two baby showers here and came back with glowing reviews every time. However, for some reason it did not appeal to me. I hearken back to the days when there was a tea room above the La Dean Shop in Rossville... More

This was a little oasis in Chattanooga. A dinky little cafe with a cute gift shop and lovely choice of teas and meals. We really enjoyed our lunch (home made cottage pie) and found the tea room charming and calming for a welcome break. I would love to visit again but unfortunately we live in London, UK ... so will...

We have been coming here for years when we are in Chattanooga. It is so fun to have bangers and mash and a custard dessert. Feel like we have traveled to London for a couple of hours. The owner is delightful.

A great place to feel like you are having Tea with the Queen. Wonderful staff. Many teas to choose from while you are having your crumpets and snacks.

A pleasant surprise in Chattanooga. Visited UK a number of times and an English tea room sounded interesting. The shop was attractive with a large number of British souvenirs. The menu was as expected in England and the food selection and quality were excellent. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. The standard triple tray filled with finger sandwiches, scones...

Not only does the English Rose have tea, finger sandwiches, scones and cakes, but also offers heartier fare such as plough mans lunch and bangers and mash. We tried the latter and a spinach quiche. Both were excellent. And we had Lady Grantham tea, in tribute to Downton Abbey. Also very good. We will be back when in Chattanooga again.

We went here on a whim because I am obsessed with English culture. We had "Lady Granthom" tea and the three tier, biscuits, finger sandwiches and desserts. Oh wow they were all top notch! I wish we had such a tea house in Columbus I would be a weekly regular!

Nice tea room in quaint shop selling tea eclectic bric brac and children's tea sets and turn of last century English toys. The decor is similar to the shop. The tea is traditional fare. The scones were on the heavy side and the clotted cream was a bit over whipped. The pastries were much better, especially the shortbread, topped with... More

There is a lot of history in this building. The current owner is doing a great job to stay abreast on the proper English Tea's trends. I enjoyed this very much.

What a pleasant surprise finding this proper English tea room in the heart of downtown Chattanooga. I was spending the day in the city exploring and happened upon this cute as a button tea room. I had to indulge. My English breakfast tea (they have many choices) with a 3 tiered platter of treats cost me $16.95 and it was... More
