A classic punt tour up Grantchester *must* include a visit to the Orchard. Overpriced, of course, but full of charms.

This place is worth a detour slightly outside of Cambridge. In the beautiful village of Grantchester can be found this wonderful tea garden. Plenty of space outside to find a deckchair and find a nice shaded patch under an apple tree. Large scones and perfect tea - the quintissential British experience! The main attraction is outside, so probably not best... More

We had a lunch/tea stop here after walking the village and meadows. The choices available were surprising; even better, the food was super duper. You can be assured I will return.

...food very overpriced a just a little gross. This "restaurant" is set in an old orchard with tables and deckchairs but there is indoor space too. It is child and dog friendly but when busy parking is iffy and service virtually nil. It is nevertheless very popular and certainly for "people like us"! A somewhat "alternative" venue which is where... More

I found it really quite expensive and the food was surprisingly average. Its unique location and surroundings needs to be matched by the quality and originality of food.

We had a very picturesque long walk from Cambridge to the Orchard Tea Garden, took many photos with cows and ducks. Nice change from London where we stayed during our trip.

We went to Grantchester for a walk and decided to refresh ourselves with a cup of tea and elderflower water. The tea room does of course do cream teas but we didn't partake so I can't comment on the quality or value of the scones. Best to go here in the summer rather than the winter as the whole point...

I and my girl reached this tea- garden walking along the river from Cb in a sunny day during winter time. Here, we had our brunch with fruit, tea and scones. it's a magic place, where you can forget everything and totally relax.
