Visit House of Commons For High Tea
In Britain, tea time has a rich history and is still a very vibrant part of the culture. Thankfully, you don’t have to travel all the way across the pond to enjoy a proper British tea. The Highlands has its own British tea room: House of Commons.
House of Commons has a cozy, home-like atmosphere with books on the shelves and trinkets on the walls. They seek to create a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Sit down, and start off your experience with a pot of tea, imported straight from England. You can accompany your tea with a scone with jam and cream, or order something a bit more substantial. The Westminster sandwich, stuffed with Black Forrest ham, tomato, and a house-made mayo, is a delicious choice. Vegetarians love the Covent Gardens sandwich made with sharp Irish cheddar and English cucumber.
The ultimate experience at House of Commons is the Afternoon Tea, which comes with a selection of finger sandwiches, scones, shortbread, and other treats.
House of Commons also hosts parties. It’s a great choice for a baby shower, birthday gathering, or even a book club meeting. The owner, Jessica, was born in London and raised in Lancashire in the north of England. She opened the tea room in 2005, and it has since become a mainstay of the neighborhood.
