It’s like you’ve landed in the English countryside. There is a nice deck for summer seating facing the English garden.
Everything about the place screams tea. It is nice to be able to purchase and take home the tea you have with dinner.
For tea we picked a tasty South African Rooibos that came in individual pots.
They offer a number of salad and sandwich plates that come with an endless pot of your favorite tea. My wife chose this Duo of Salad.
I picked the special, a Steak and Ale Pie. Large pieces of steak in a rich beef and ale gravy, wrapped in a light savory puff pastry. This traditional pub fare was a real treat.
For dessert we had a wonderful English Cream Lime Custard with Crystalized Honey and Lavender. The custard was perfect and the taste of lime was not over powering.
Staunton has some great restaurants but for a change of pace don’t overlook Anne Hathaway Cottage Tea Room. The service is excellent, the food and tea are great, and it is a fun experience.
