“Tucked away in Wayne”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Taste of Britain is a tucked away spot in the Eagle Shoopes (Wayne) that is what it says: A Taste of Britain. Very good food and a laid-back atmosphere defines this restaurant. Sadly, the noise level at most times is close to unbearable.

“British Teashop, Stateside!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

A Taste of Britain is a lovely, little tea shop in Wayne, PA. Wide selection of trendy teas, along with tasty soups, salads, sandwiches, and sweets. They offer afternoon tea and have British snacks and tea-related items for sale. Parking is easy (and free). Nice boutiques nearby for window shopping afterward. We enjoyed late afternoon tea-cum-supper when traveling in the U.K. and have missed such places in the U.S.--until now. (Only wish that they carried Lady Grey tea, and that they had an Arlington, Virginia location!)

“Expensive Packet of Crisps”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

I shop at Taste of Britain often. As an ex-pat I am like a kid in a candy store (literally) in here as I stock up on (decent) chocolate, sausage rolls, pork pies and biscuits (not cookies).
My only gripe is the cost. Its very expensive. For Easter I bought four chocolate eggs and coincidentally three of them were the same as the ones my partner had bought for the kids. Her eggs were MUCH cheaper.

“Slipped”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Had been a while since last lunch at A Taste of Britain. The spinach salad was a very small portion. My sister said her sandwich was "okay, nothing special." The pots of loose leaf tea were pleasant but barely yielded a cup and a half each. The bread pudding was quite nice, warm and not too sweet, accompanied by fresh whipped cream and vanilla ice cream. Our server was busy and perhaps a bit too anxious to take our order but, very nice when we could capture her attention. It would have been nice to have been offered a refill of our tea pots. There was no refill of my water glass either. Once the check was presented, we sat for a very long time and finally had to flag down our server to take my card. The clientele are all women of a certain age perhaps owing to location and the limited, somewhat delicate menu choices. Seating is rather uncomfortable, padded cushions on the seats would be much appreciated,

“Always great, food, tea, and service”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

This place is a gem. The food is very good and the menu changes slightly every so often. They have many many selections of teas to choose from, and you can buy any of them to go (tea leaves...) they also have a nice selection of items to take home, from speciality food items, tea pots and spoons, and lots of other goodies. They have a 'scone of the month' flavor in addition to their regular scones. Their homemade soups are fantastic and their fritattas (sp?) as well. My favorite item is their cheese and onion pasty. It is sooooo good. The service is always great. Definitely make a reservation, the place is busy! I always try to go at off peak times and it is still busy, but not as much. They also have outdoor seating in the warmer months. Seriously- if you like tea- scones- good food, ambiance and service- don't hesitate. Call for a reservation and go! You won't be disappointed.
