Over the past few years of writing about Lynnfield history
and doing these eBay report columns, from time to time I’ve seen mentions
online of what was apparently a long-ago restaurant in town called the English
Tea House, at 275 Broadway (Route 1 North).
It’s tough to tell what decade this particular matchbook came from, although the 1960s or 1970s could be a fair guess. A check on Google Maps finds that Kelly Nissan now occupies the site of the former English Tea House – which, despite the name, boated “Home Style American Cuisine.” So forget about those crumpets and definitely forget about bangers and mash.
If anybody remembers dining at this particular restaurant – or anything else about that place – please feel free to share it in the comment boxes below.
