excellent old tea room with a huge garden great on a summers day, loads of choice on teas an food but not cheap.
We have been visiting The Orchard Tea Room for approximately 20 years when it originally was just a small tea hut with deck chairs in the orchard. Its now a delightful place to spend as much time as you wish relaxing in the Orchard. The food is excellent, maybe a little pricey, but they serve the most delicious scones, always... More
English rustic charm at its best - perfect for an expat coming back to the UK for a visit with his family. The only problem was I couldnt feel relaxed as I wanted to prune and treat the apple trees, and was rather afraid that I would fall through the deck chair. The tea and scones were deliciouis and we... More
Great food and quaint setting make this a favourite spot to visit while in Cambridge! Highly recommend coming in nice weather to sit out in the apple orchard. After enjoy a nice walk along the River Cam to enjoy the beautiful Cambridge country side.
It was the heart of apple season when I visited this location with my family. There are plenty of garden chairs under the trees in the garden as well as indoor tables. I had the farmer's lunch and it was wonderful! There were several types of cheeses on the plate in very generous quantity. This is a historic location and... More
I now work in Cambridge, though I don't live there. I was aware of the Orchard at Grantchester, and its history, and I love marking the seasons by doing something seasonal, so had decided to get to the orchard during apple-picking. I went with a colleague for coffee; we sat and drank it (whatever it cost...I wasn't really that interested)... More
It is such a pleasant atmosphere, excellent for people watching and somewhere fe here you can bring your pets. If you are really lucky a bird will descend and join you for tea! The size of the scones have to be seen and tasted to believe. The place is magical and timeless.
We absolutely loved our visit here. The sandwiches and scones hit the spot. The scones are huge so with the clotted cream and jam very filling. Jam selection included strawberry, raspberry, etc. The tea and green tea were fine. We loved the fact that the place doesn't seem to have changed much since Brooke etc whiled away hours in the...

Everything about this place is magical, the best bit is they never succumb to modernisation it's like time stood still a little oasis of tranquility, quintessentially English a lovely tea room in an orchard near the river a couple of miles from Cambridge.
A unique place for light lunch or tea, seated in deck chairs placed at higgledy-piggedly angles under trees or in different parts of the orchard, this is the place to come on a good weather day and relax. It always seems to be crowded so getting one of said tables is easier the earlier on you come. However, the experience... More
