If you are looking for authenticity this is not the place to go. The fruit scones contained no fruit, and they were the size of silver dollars. I've never seen scones this small before. To top this off the server we had was very rude to my friend, who was asking about the different county tables, and wondered if there... More

Friendly enough service. Very little 'ambiance' .Perhaps I am spoiled by other tea rooms but...normally when 2 people order a Princess tea EACH the 3 tier tray has at least 4 desserts. Not so here. One 3 tier set up for 2 people included small and thin (almost meager) sandwiches, 3 desserts, and 4 scones. You expect small scones (British... More

This is a great place to unwind and slow things down. This was our first visit here. I have always loved exploring different cultures and this is the British version of our Philippine afternoon "meryenda". That was one of my favorite time of day where we would snack on some delicatessens prepared by my grandmother in the Philippines. This is... More

When you need a special place to sit and chat over a pot of tea or have something absolutely not on a regular menu, this is a great place to take family or meet friends in small or large groups.

We had lunch here. We each had the soups which were very good. We had 1/2 sandwich as well. One chicken salad and one cucumber. Then we shared a pot of tea for two. The portions are somewhat small and a little pricey. The tea was very good. There were several Royal Teas to choose from. The scones were tiny,... More

Stopped in for an early lunch during a visit to Panama City; the food was pretty good and somewhat authentic. Our daughter had the cream tea and my wife had the shepherd's pie.

Periodically, I have visited Willows over the years and under different ownership. It is not a place to go for lunch when I need to get back to work, but my colleague and I decided to try it today, May 3, 2016. We waited a long time for a server to come to our table, and, even after the server... More
