Cross & Bluebird Tea Room - Historic Tate Farm

This fun little welcome sign greeted us as we arrived at The Cross & Bluebird Tea Room where we recently enjoyed a private tea luncheon at this lovely tea room. Although this tea room closed as of the summer of 2015, we have pleasant memories of an enjoyable family time spent here.

After everyone was served tea, with delicately cut lemon slices,

Peach Scones were presented with a generous portion of cream, lemon curd, and jelly.  It was a fun way to start our special luncheon.

Chilled Cucumber and dill soup in vintage dishes was the next course.

Mushroom Quiche with a chilled asparagus salad was the featured main course.  And for dessert, a sinfully delicious chocolate cheesecake.

A stroll thru the gardens completed our special afternoon get-away.
