Lady Bedford’s Tea Parlour
21 Chinquapin Road • Pinehurst, NC 28374
In naming her tearoom, Marian Caso was inspired by the story of Anna Maria Stanhope Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, who is credited with inventing the British custom of afternoon tea. Since 2008, Lady Bedford’s Tea Parlour has become a favorite with locals and tourists of Pinehurst, North Carolina. Guests who dine at Lady Bedford’s can look forward to a Victorian atmosphere with crystal and fine china. Diners have more than 60 loose-leaf tea options, which are individually brewed once ordered. The restaurant also offers breakfast, lunch, and a number of afternoon-tea selections, making it perfect for customers looking for either a hearty tea service or a light sampler. Lady Bedford’s Tea Parlour is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
