Tasty food, lace curtains, linen tablecloths, fine china and silver are all ingredients you’ll find at The O'Connor House. We go a long way to provide our guests with nostalgic amenities and style - simple reminders of days gone by.

Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea is an occasion unto itself.  At The O'Connor House, Tea is freshly prepared and turned out on beautiful double or triple-tiered plates and includes a medley of finger sandwiches, scones, preserves, real whipped cream, sweets, and, of course, your choice from a large selection of teas.


Fresh Ingredients

Every dish that comes to your table has been made in our kitchen using simple and fresh ingredients.  We're proud of that.  And we know that as a result each dish will taste just that  much better.  


We don't like to toot our own horn... But our Coconut Cream Pie is good.  It's very good.  And we know you'll agree!  You will definitely want to save room for something sweet after your meal.  

Wine and Beer

The O'Connor House is fully licensed and has a fine selection of wine and local craft and English beers.

Deseronto Antique Emporium

Just next door, the Great Deseronto Antique Emporium has a great selection of antiques, collectibles, and curiosities.  Browse our unique wares and find that one-of-a-kind item you've been searching for!


Groups and Special Events

We would be pleased to host your group's next special event and help you make it memorable.  Arrange afternoon tea for your ladies' group, celebrate a family birthday or anniversary, or book our dining room for an upcoming shower - the sky is the limit.  Our staff will work closely with you to iron out all the details.  Call today to make your reservation!
