“Great day today: High Tea at the Fall River Historical Society and a chance to view their magnificently decorated Christmas trees. A highlight of the Christmas season for us now.” — A customer
Our most popular offering is Victorian High Tea, which includes an extensive selection of Ashby’s famous English teas, a variety of tea sandwiches, savories, and delectable dainty pastries. Our heavenly date and ginger scones, for which we are locally famous, are made from early 20th-century recipes. Pastries include confections such as hand-decorated petit fours and our traditional almond macaroons, an FRHS favorite since 1921. Savories include flavored breads with cream cheese filling, tartlets, and traditional cucumber sandwiches.
“… a wonderful experience as usual. We look forward to it every year and are never disappointed. Just beautiful and my favorite place for high tea.” — A customer
