The English Rose
Elegant china tea pots surround you in this former historic hotel turned English tea room. The English Rose is located across from the famous Chattanooga Choo Choo, thus the history as a hotel, as it was the ideal location for newly arrived train passengers to Chattanooga.
It's a comfortable place to sit and enjoy a pot of tea, which will arrive at your table dressed properly with a tea cozy. The tea is probably the best in the city and despite frequent attempts, I have never been able to match the taste in my own kitchen.
The food consists of dishes such as cottage pie, bangers, and Dover sole. The desert menus include sherry trifle, sticky toffee pudding, and lemon cheesecake. All food is carefully prepared and tasty. The staff is authentically British. There is also a small store selling imported British delicacies (my favorite is the rose flavored Turkish Delight) and eclectic gifts.
