    We had a wonderful lunch sitting outside on the porch. Food was delicious, the mango ice tea was delicious. The service was perfect and we enjoyed touring the inn, it's beautiful.

    I've been to the Silver Fountain Inn & Tea Parlor a number of times, but each time I go it seems the food isn't as good as the last time. My friend and I both had chicken salad with grapes & kiwi; however, I found 1/2 grape and my friend had a whole grape. Neither of us had kiwi. The chicken was mashed like baby food. Very disappointing. Two sandwiches, an ice tea, a hot tea and a plate of four cookies for $33. Disappointing.

    We went for afternoon tea on 5/3/14 and had a wonderful time. The food was delicious and beautifully presented on 3 tiers, (we ordered the Duchess from the menu). We were also treated to a tour and history of the Silver Fountain Inn and area. We plan on returning to try some of the savories on the full lunch and dinner menus. We were delighted to hear of the special events such as, "Downton Abbey and Who Done Its" and are looking forward to participating and staying at the Inn. If you enjoy good food, beautiful atmosphere and elegance in a historical home without being stuffy, this is a perfect place. Enjoy!

    This was all we expected. Elegant, quiet yet friendly and delicious. We lingered over the lunch and never felt hurried. We will definitely be back.

  • Dover's best kept secret!

    This place really is a hidden gem! Went there twice last week while visiting family-once for a lovely pot of tea and homemade scones with a friend, and once for a special occasion luncheon, featuring high tea. Both times the service was outstanding, and the food delicious. Felt like we were in a Newport mansion, right here in the middle if Dover, NH!! The decor is breathtaking, the live entertainment just right-violinist playing quietly near the fireplace. After we ate, we were given a history of the place and a tour of some of the rooms. We will definitely come again for tea and to stay overnight in one of the wonderfully decorated guest rooms. I cannot say enough about this place, and the innkeepers are friendly and professional...

    The Silver Lattern Inn and Tea Room is a lovely place to meet friends and have a quiet chat over lunch or tea. Menu is light fare and ambience is delightful.

    Lunch was a delight a Silver Lantern Inn with two friends. We enjoyed quiche with fruit salad and chicken salad sandwiches, everything delicious. The "topping on the cake" was dessert--it was a three-tiered server filled with small, absolutely delectible desserts to share, twelve pieces in all.

    This is a lovely spot to have special afternoon tea with friends or family. The set-up is snug but cozy and the wait staff is very attentive. The tea selection is wide and the scones are delicious.
