“a place of serenity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

My girlfriend & I spent a couple of hours of pure bliss just sipping tea and eating delicious petite sandwiches & cakes. The service was attentive and not once did I feel like I was being pushed out of the door. The atmosphere was quiet, comfortable and you felt totally at home. It was a nice way to finish up the day after shopping.

“It's just tea”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

It was ok. My partner wanted to do it. $35 each for tea and little sandwiches was steep. The scones and cream were quite good and eclairs were wonderful. Rest was just ok. Decaf tea options - other than herbal - would have been nice.

“So royal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Scones and brie croissant - excellent! Tea - excellent. Setting and comfy couches excellent. Other savory items - neah. Other sweet items - okay. Service slow and not really good at all, we had a few servers.

“Relaxing and enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2011

If you enjoy afternoon tea, the Tea at the Castle won't disappoint. We've been here several times and their service is consistent. I'm glad they finally put the prices of the champagne on the menu. The previous visit, we were rather surprised that the 3 flutes of champagne were $28 each. This time they have a menu and you have the option and a price range to choose from.

Be aware that they automatically add the gratuity to your bill.

“Where 80 year olds come to die.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2011

We came for a coffee and some desert and it had to be the worst experience I have ever had for the pricing they are putting forth.

First of all, the server was bored out of her mind with zero personality.

The food was so bad we ended up sending it back. The coffee was weak and it was just a waste of an hour.

Don't come here.
