The English Rose Tea Room — Chattanooga

Our family thoroughly enjoyed The English Rose Tea Room in Chattanooga!
It is described as an "authentic British Tearoom and Shop."

As most of you know, this family loves travel and visiting tearooms in Britain.
The English Rose is as close to an English tearoom as we've found on this side of the pond.
Clare, the manager, is from Sussex.  We so enjoyed visiting with her!



The Queen joined us for tea.
Oops, it's our own princess KJ doing the queen's wave.

Our table was set with Royal Albert Old Country Roses china,
but the men were offered a larger cup if they wanted it.
As you can see in the photo above, AJ (11) chose the "man's cup." 

Royal Albert Old Country Roses teacups and PG Tips Tea.
How perfect is that!
We ordered a pot ofregular and and a pot of decaf.
Both were refilled as needed
We all ordered the Victorian Tea.  It was served on the three-tier server
The Victorian Tea included freshly baked scones
served with real clotted cream, lemon curd and jam  

 

A selection of six finger sandwiches

an assortment of English cheeses and crackers and English biscuits

AND, a choice of desserts!
The guys chose the Knickerbocker Glory

Princess KJ chose the Sticky Toffee Pudding

and, I chose the Meringue Nest

More about the menu and shop in the next post.
Yes!  We returned the next day for lunch tea! 
I told you my family loved The English Rose Tea Room.
