"If you are cold, tea will warm you; If you are too heated, it will cool you; If you are depressed, it will cheer you; If you are excited, it will calm you."
William Ewart Gladstone
Former British Prime Minister
"Tea, tea, tea. Where would I be without tea? Wherever you may be, always enjoy a nice pot of tea...or two..!"

I am happy to confirm that his English Tea Room website is now completed, and access to the Rated English Tea Rooms and others pages can be accessed via the menu tabs on the top of this page; but I will add more additional pages over the coming weeks.
Summer English tea room tour
Although the English summer is a few months away, I am now planning the Joe Ellis' English Tea Room Tour, visiting and reporting on English Tea Rooms that I will visit on the tour.
Tea rooms closing down
It is sad to see so many great English Tea Rooms closing down. Since redesigning this website, I have been saddened to see the very best tea rooms either closed, or on the market for sale. Let's support this English tradition
"Talk and tea is his specialty," said Giles. "He has about five cups of tea a day. But he works splendidly when we are looking."
-Agatha Christie, Sleeping Murder
"My dear, if you could give me a cup of tea to clear my muddle of a head I should better understand your affairs."
