Unfortunately we can't accommodate food allergies requests. If you have a certain food allergy, we will not be able to guarantee an allergen free food. Our other location at Foxboro MA is able to accommodate some food allergies.
Afternoon tea is a delicious three-course meal served on a tiered stand. It’s a filling meal that is sure to satisfy even the most voracious appetites!

We are regulars here and have never had a real complaint (tho we do often joke about the frosting staining our tongues a weird color. Green this time for instance) but we wouldn’t change a thing. Definitely a favorite for a girls afternoon. We look forward to the next special tea event

Was not what I expected given the price. Waitress rarely checked on us. Paid up front bc I didn’t know if she was coming back. Asked if it was for a special occasion when I made the reservation but it being my birthday was never mentioned by the staff. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

We loved the ambience, the service and food presentation. It was expensive but we understand it takes time to create a beautiful and tasty menu which it was. I appreciated that our server knew exactly which items my daughter with food allergy to nuts should avoid. I have two suggestions: 1) Give people a chance to fill out a food allergy questionnaire at time of reservation. For example, would AITV have been willing to remove cheese or cream from one serving ahead of time for someone with dairy allergy? I just avoided those items but many of the items included it. 2) Smaller bite-size portions of the quiche and scones and perhaps mini cupcakes would have allowed us to taste more while there. We got full so fast but at least we got to enjoy the rest at home. Overall, everything was fantastic. Thank you!

Loved it during Harry Potter tea....but this time not so much!! Cucumber sandwich on hamburger buns?? Cheap tasting and looking this go around. I understand Covid possibly played a part, but do something to make it work the extremely high cost! Unsure I will do again after this experience

Enjoyable but expensive for quality of food and amount of tea served. The croissant for the egg salad sandwich was stale and roast beef wrap had almost no beef ……. the chocolate caldron supposedly had a filling which would tell you a wizard power…….um no ours didn’t Waitress was sweet but seemed inexperienced

It was our first time attending this establishment and we will definitely return. We purchased the Wizard, the savory snacks were delicious and the desserts were moist and flavorful. Our server was kind and pleasant. The servings are humungous, we had to take food home. My husband got a free dessert for his birthday. I must recommend this spot, something for all ages.

Another lovely afternoon, this time to celebrate my birthday. We leisurely enjoyed our tea (we really liked the tea with caramel notes), sandwiches, scone, pastries and special drink. Our food preferences and allergies were handled professionally and respectfully. There was even a "happy birthday" box with macrons and tea to take home. What a nice touch!

My daughter and I had 1 pm reservations for Easter Sunday. The server was in grubby jeans, the small restaurant area was dark and drab. While the food was good and plentiful, the whole experience was blah because of lackluster ambience and the dress of the waitress. We did it once, but never again. And we have been apprising our friends of our experience.d

I really enjoyed the character atmosphere in Alice in the Village. It was a birthday celebration for my friend and a little gift at the end of our meal was spot on!! I know it's COVID requirements to have the place clean but when we came in, it was such a strong bleach smell that took us off guard and our eyes were watering. Maybe if it's possible to use a different cleaner less stronger. Thank you for a lovely experience!

I went to The Most Magical Tea On Earth. Unfortunately, it was not. First of all, the USA sandwich was suppose to have roast beef on it, ours had turkey. The bread for the Italy sandwich was hard. I think they forgot some of our chips and salsa for Mexico as the portion was so small only my husband got to sample it. I think there was a teaspoon of salsa and 3 tortilla chips broken in half. The couscous salad was very good. This is my 4th time here and they really need to replace the scone with something else; it is always dry and not very tasty. The desserts were uninspiring. One was a regular cupcake with a sugar rocket on top and another was a mini eclair that was frozen. The experience was not worth the $106.00 it cost for two of us. On a good note, my grandson said the macrons I brought home to him were delicious!!

We had a wonderful time. The one comment I heard from the girls was there was too much food. We packed a lot of the sweets to take home. We loved the chicken salad and the raspberry macaron, but as a baker myself I thought the scone was dry. The young lady who served us was delightful.
