The Tea House was a wonderful venue for the Henz Party High Tea. We had a separate room and were able to have our fun with only our laughter intruding. The set up was beautiful and the well stocked tiers of food were delicious. The...More

We went to The Tea House for a family birthday. The food was good (we had corn fritters, coronation chicken salad and the berry parfait) but let down by slow service and wait staff. The service seemed a bit disorganised though it was well-meaning.More

The Tea House was open in April 2012 out of a desire to make a place where people would feel like they were being treated. A place that had a unique interior, world class food and service, a major emphasis on quality and customer experience. A place to come to, to be removed from the day to day, to get together with friends and family in a beautiful environment, enjoying great food and great company. A place for a special occasion. A High Tea event, a luncheon, a wedding, a birthday party or just a place to meet for a pot of delicious tea. A place, a house, your house. The Tea House.
