English Rose Tea Room — 2nd Visit

We enjoyed the English Rose Tearoom so much we returned the next day for lunch tea.

There are several differences in a British village tea room and typical American tea rooms.
 —The menu is served 10 am - 5:30 pm, Monday - Saturday
— A full afternoon tea, lunch, and individual items are availble throughout the day
— Reservations are not necessary except for large groups
(We were "walk-ins" both days as were a steady stream of customers)
— The servings were plentiful and typically British (not fancy)
— The tea served is PG Tips unless you request another selection available from their shop
Drinking PG Tips brings back many memories of our tearoom visits in England!!

On Monday our server was the manager, Clare.  We loved her delightful English accent.
We were greeted by the chef on Tuesday who told us she was happy to see us return. 
Although our server on Tuesday was not British, she did a fine job while she was extremely busy with customers.
It was Clare's day off.  She told them to expect us because AJ and GJ told her we would return.

I hope you can read the menu below, if not, click on the link here.

Each of us ordered individual items from the menu during our return visit on Tuesday.
Princess KJ and I ordered the Leek and Potato Soup with six finger sandwiches, as posted on the blackboard above.

The guys ordered a variety of their favorites from the afternoon tea and  a banger served on a crusty roll smothered in onions.  We all selected a plain scone served with clotted cream, lemon curd and jam.
And, of course, we consumed several pots of PG Tips tea.

The English Rose has a very nice selection of tea wares and gifts

including a wide variety of children's tea sets

They also have a large selection of British foods and teas in their shop

I guarantee this family will always stop at
when we travel to Georgia or Florida on I-75.
