Get a Sunday newspaper, a few friends and head to The Orchard Tea Garden. Grab a few scones, a big pot of English Breakfast tea and relax in green deck chairs. It doesn't matter whether it is spring, summer or autumn - the calmness of the orchard garden is amazing. Slice the scone in half, spread the clotted cream and... More

We visit a few times each year and generally have a cream tea on each visit. It can work out a little expensive, however the scones are always warm, fresh and tasty so a little expense for an enjoyable cream team occasionally is surely acceptable!? Lovely surroundings but look out for the wasps on hot days around the fruit trees... More

We spent a lovely Sunday afternoon at the Orchard Tea Rooms in Grantchester and had a nice walk to the river, along some woodland and meadows. Simply idyllic. The swans came really close and we enjoyed a scone and a cup of tea sitting underneath an apple tree. Great history which you can find in the booklet they sell. A... More

We went to this tea garden it was recommended as one of the top places to visit in the area. All I can say is the gardens were lovely to sit in and the scones delicious however the staff were overworked so customers were rushed and the tea was Luke warm and one of the worst brews I've ever had,...

As stated in title - food was good but the cream teas worked out expensive as you had the buy scone; jam; cream, as individual items. Everyone thought it would be much better to sell 'a cream tea' and charge one price! Lovely surroundings and plenty of deckchairs for use. Lovely walks nea by alongside the river.

If your ever in the village of Grantchester then drop in at the Orchard tea rooms, access via the cricket field if walking in the Meadowsor or if driving via its own car park . Relax by sharing in the great English tradition of afternoon tea or a cream tea underneath the apple orchard laying back in one of the... More

On a hot sunny day this is a lovely place to visit with tables and deckchairs scattered on the grass and under the trees. The food is good and reasonably priced. However when it rains and you have to sit inside you will find that the interior doesn't match the outside and no real effort has been made to hide... More

They could do so much more to be welcoming and reducing the prices would help. They have a superb location and the orchard is lovely . People flock to visit the place where Rupert Brooke, Virginia Woolf and their associates spent happy times, so why does one get the feeling that they are just after your money? Service is not...
