Afternoon Tea

We welcome you to Afternoon Tea in our 1930s stone cottage, served every Saturday at 2pm. We are happy to arrange a week-day tea time, by reservation.

Our Afternoon Tea brings a laid-back, relaxed approach to the traditional English-style service.  For example: while we serve real clotted cream, you’ll find Appalachian-inspired twists on our menu and Southern hospitality in place of white-gloved service.  We make absolutely everything from scratch, and with a lot of love!  Reservations are required.

Tea service includes individual bottomless pots of tea or French Press coffee, warm scones and shortbread cookies with seasonal jams and clotted cream, traditional finger sandwiches, and petit-four style desserts.  $20 per person. (+$2 for Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, or Vegan Service)  We offer tea for children under 10 years of age for $10.
