Afternoon Tea at the Harrisville Inn

So, who’s for tea?


NOW SERVING: Tea and Bliss

Bliss lets us dismiss the small irritations of life so that we can indulge in the sweet flavor of life’s offerings. Whether you choose Chamomile, Earl Grey, or Chai, fill your cup and fill your day with, love, faith, hope, and joy.

Slow and Easy is what how your time should be spent at the Barn at Harrisville Inn.

Nothing says: ‘slow down’ more than an afternoon with a hot cup of tea and some amazing savories, scones and sweets.

Tea at the Barn is a favorite retreat for those seeking casual elegance and a relaxed haven from their busy schedules.

The most important part of a successful Tea is the tea itself.

The second most important consideration when planning a Tea is the aesthetics. These include a place setting, center arrangements and tempting treats on the plates. We use fine china and silver. We provide cream, honey, sugar and sweetener in proper containers, table cloth and cloth napkins and display fresh flowers, when available. Using attractive garnishes on the plates, especially edible flowers to add guests’ enjoyment of the Tea. Most successful Teas are one that feel like a personal occasion.

When was the last time you enjoyed a cup of tea with someone you care about? Isn’t it time you did it again?

To appreciate tea is to appreciate the moment.

The days may come, the days may go,
But still the hands of memory weave
The blissful dreams of long ago.
George Cooper

Door to barn

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 exhausted, it will calm you.

William Gladstone
