I still love the place... but

Having been taking friends to C & K for 18 mths and all of them returning with more friends I am still of the opinion that the food is delicious and a bit different. Not your ordinary cakes etc. I am always tempted by the gifts that have been lovingly sought to be a little different. However, I... read more

We had arranged afternoon tea here to celebrate a friend's birthday. On arrival we advised the waitress that we would now only need a table for 2 instead of four as sadly sickness prevented the others from attending. At this point we were told be a very officious woman that we would have to pay for four regardless as "all... More

This was recommended by one of my closest friends to enjoy a cream tea so we could all spend some quality time together. Sine then we have visited 4 times! Only one of us lives local so the rest of us drive but it's very worth while! Great relaxing atmosphere, Fantastic range of cakes & scones and as much tea... More

I came for tea and cake with a friend one Saturday afternoon. It was very busy but we managed to find a table in the garden, which was lovely (thankfully it was sunny, if not warm). I had blueberry, raspberry and lime drizzle cake which was fantastic. So delicious I took the last piece home with me as well! The... More

This gift shop and tea room is tucked away in the village of Halstead. The tea room was very busy for a wet November afternoon. Good friendly service and the cakes were excellent. Well worth looking for it.

This was for a quiet lunch for my friends 91st birthday. I booked a table but didn't realise that the afternoon teas didn't start until 2pm. The waitress was extremely helpful and we managed to have a small version of the experience as the restaurant was very busy and by the time our food arrived it would be 2pm (... More

Three of us met here and had lunch. It's a lovely setting inside a gift shop and the food is delicious. The staff are friendly and efficient, all round a great place for a relaxed lunch with friends.

Book the afternoon tea in advance. At £15 it has to be the bargain of the century. Could wax lyrically about blueberry jam and cream and blueberry scones ..... and bakewell tart "to die for" .... and almond & blueberry cake ..... and proper egg mayonaise .... and strong cheddar ..... but at this point you might have got the...

A really quaint little restaurant in which was The Old Post Office. There are two small shops you walk through in which they sell very pretty arty things. Lovely food, but it seems you need to book as it does get very full. The day we visited it was crowded and we managed to get a seat in the pretty... More
