The Windsor Arms has three tea rooms, and we were seated in the smallest. And by smallest, I mean really small. We eavesdropped on the table next to us because we honestly couldn't help it. We were so close that a waiter couldn't even fit himself between our tables. The room that we were put in was pretty depressing as well. The walls were painted a deep dark red, and the windows had thick, heavy curtains. We peeked in to the other two rooms as we were leaving and couldn't believe how beautifully lit and decorated they were.
Clockwise from top: clotted cream, strawberry jam, berry preserves
Goat cheese and caramelized shallot tart
Fresh scone with lemon zest
R to L: Cucumber, smoked salmon, grilled chicken
Strawberries with fresh whipped cream
Looking at these photos now, I've realized I forgot to include a photo of the teas that we got! They were both on the fruity side (mine more so than hers) and served in two different tea pots.
We started off our meal with the tart, followed by the scones, both of which were extremely good. This was our first time trying scones, and they were delicious, with or without the condiments! The sandwiches were disappointing, but I was expecting that to be honest. All the reviews that I've read about the Windsor Arms has repeatedly pointed out that the sandwiches were gummy, and they were. The petite fours, while good, weren't anything to brag about. The highlight of the meal was definitely the fresh berries and cream!
