This restaurant offers a selection of teas, a couple of soups and a few salads, along with tinycrustless tea sandwiches. If you are hungry and expect to chow down on a substantial meal, this probably is not the best choice in historic Fairhaven.

I would, instead, recommend this little tea room for a mid-afternoon refreshment while strolling along the streets of Fairhaven and window shopping. But fair warning, there is no champagne served to make your afternoon super special.

Lovely little tea room that serves three tier tea treats of sandwiches, scones and jam. Great value and lovely environment with china and linens. Teas include rare and unusual choices that can be difficult to find - such as lapang soochong, and the preparation was tea connisseur-worthy with china pots and cup/saucer, tea cozys, and loose leaf teas. Nice place to bring your spouse, your mom, your friend.

A lovely place to go for a relaxing lunch or afternoon tea. Soups, sandwiches, and cornish pasties made with care, or have the Abbey Tea like we did. It comes with an assortment of dainty sandwiches (I really liked the watercress with lemon and cream cheese), a freshly baked scone with jam and cream, and some very prettily presented sliced fruit. Everything looked and tasted great.
Somebody involved with the place must have an English background because they have got the tea-room atmosphere just right. It is cosy and pretty without being too frilly and cute. There were a couple of tables outside that will be nice in summer too. Have now been twice and intend to go back.
Have not tried the pottery painting upstairs, but the tea-room is worth visiting all on its own.

I have my G rated Bridal Shower here and it has been the talk of the town since! I had about 9 girls there for the event. We painted pottery while drinking tea and eating scones. The Paris Tea is amazing! And the scones are lethal! There was really good selection of pottery to choose from and the prices were fair. The workers were really helpful explaining how to paint the pottery and giving us ideas. All of us were either first timers or had not painted pottery in a long time. Usually they don't do large group parties in the evening but they were really flexible when I asked. I wish I would of known of this place sooner. I think it would be great to take kids and girlfriends to bond with. A kids party would be fun too.
