This is a combination of traditional tea and pub experiences I've had in California. I cannot vouch for them being traditionally British, since I have yet to experience the United Kingdom. I can say it was a lovely experience.

Ambiance. There was a rustic, cottage feel with antiques and art for sale on the walls. The walls were dark and unfinished wood. The rooms were small and separated. The gift shop is adjacent to one of these rooms. When we entered it was much like a library, very quiet but with a little bit of music tinkling in the background. The other guests were very respectful of us and so was the server. He was very soft spoken and attentive. I am surprised that this since we came in just as the busy Presidents weekend was ending.

Service. As I said, our server was very attentive. He came by often to refresh our tea pots and our water. Soft spoken but talkative.

Food. I had to have a traditional Duchess tea, but my girlfriend had a traditional Cornish pasty with a salad. I hear it's typically British that a pasty come with mushy peas, but this one did not. We had the Russian Caravan Tea and the Sticky Toffee Tea. The Russian caravan was very smoky, but tasted lovely. And the sticky toffee tea was nicely aromatic, an excellent mouth feel with a bit of milk and sugar. I had a salmon and cucumber sandwich, and a scone with devonshire cream and strawberry jam. Can't say I was too pleased with the sandwich, but it was not terrible. I guess I'm too used to sushi style salmon. But the scone was delicious. I tried Morgan's pasty, which met expectations--delicious! They also served a good amount of fruit with the pasty.

For 35 dollars including tax and tip, we were quite satiated! Perhaps a little expensive for the value, but I'm used to afternoon tea costing around that much.

The gift shop sells tea things, including pots, strainers, cozies, teas, biscuits, and curios with pictures of the Queen of England. They have a good selection of beer and cider from the UK and local wines. This is not an overly girlie experience as most teas I've had with lace and doilies everywhere. So, yay, men, you can have meat, potatoes, and beer while your lady has tea! You'll survive.

The food was pretty good, but not the best tea I've had. My friend and I came in a few minutes late (we walked there) and the proprietor was a bit gruff with us, then was kind of put off when we asked for separate tea pots. I might go back but it wasn't high on my list of things to do in Cambria or tea spots.

The Tea Cozy in Cambria is a very nice place to go and have nice snack. The tea room is in what was once an old home. The food is very fresh and desserts are very good. Its a truly British experience for sure and very reasonably priced.
