The food was excellent and the staff were outstanding! I had the Country Pie with a salad and Raspberry iced tea. The honey mustard dressing is the best I have ever had! I could have dipped the napkin in it and ate that too! They have all kind of tea related items for purchase.

I was met at the door by, who I was later told was the OWNER. She was the rudest and most abrupt person I have EVER met. While dining, I noticed it was not only the customers who suffer from this attitude, but the staff. My waitress was great and the staff tried to make up for this woman's horrid... More

I haven't been here in years...no reason just tried other places, but am so glad that I went back. First the show is quaintly old British--it's a traditional tea shop with walls full of UK items that not only set an atmosphere, but tell a story. As a tea room there is all manner of tea possibilities...I chose a standard... More

Been there twice and both times great. Best to call ahead to make reservation. High tea was wonderful and the staff is so friendly. If you live English tea this is the place to go.

Visited for high tea. My sister chose a tea plate and was very happy with it. I chose the Cornish Pastry which was delicious. The tea was the perfect temperature. Service was excellent. Prices were a little high but they are in all tea rooms. Nice atmosphere. We did not have a reservation but we were seated very quickly even... More

On holiday from Birmingham, my wife and I spotted a small tearoom in downtown Mt. Dora. Surprisingly the menu featured not only tea and crumpets but hot meals as well. I ordered the Scottish salmon with risotto and grilled vegetables, while my wife received the fish pie. The salmon was a sublime gastronomic rhapsody of flavors, complemented by the superb... More

It is always a delight and a treat to stop in for lunch when I'm in town. The staff is always so pleasant and welcoming! They are a huge reason for my return visits. The food is always exceptional too! I get 5 star flavor and presentation at an affordable price. My favorite items include the steak and mushroom pie,... More

My husband and I purposely put this into our itinerary for our Mt. Dora trip. We stopped in for afternoon tea and it was a delightful break in the day.

I have been here several times because I enjoy the tea, scones and breakfast. The service is so-so. Not all of the servers are friendly or welcoming. We had gone in a few weeks ago with a party of 8. We felt like an imposition because they were trying to squeeze is at table for 6. Reason being...they didn't want... More

Marsha G, Owner at Windsor Rose Tea Room & Restaurant, responded to this review

Obviously, there is a lot of discord here, almost too many to comment on. We had a very busy day yesterday (a record breaking breakfast), and a very busy lunch. Most everyone that has been to us during season knows that you need to make a reservation to be seated because we only hold 50 people. We have done our... More
