Polly Claire's

A British Tradition in a Southern Venue

By Britt E. Stafford • Photography by John O’Hagan

Grand mansions with large columns and open porches are iconic images when some think of the South. While many of the plantation-style homes have disappeared over the years, the last antebellum home in Chattanooga, Tennessee, is not only a historical landmark, but it also houses a charming restaurant and tearoom. The Historic Dent House is now home to Polly Claire’s, a venue that brings a very British tradition to a very Southern state.
