Aldebrough High Street. Close to the town centre and sea front. The sisters stock a huge range of specialist teas, rarely seen in most cafes. A small but friendly and comfortable place, where all the food is made on the premises. Good food at reasonable prices. The locally caught fish dish I had was delicious. And the home made meringues... More

Called in on Mothers Day with the family for lunch. We all had sandwiches of various flavours and they were all "OK" - but nothing special. I think my Crab sandwich was around £7 and was comparable to what you would get as a pre-packed sandwich from M&S. A nice selection of teas were on offer and it was good... More

I stumbled across this cafe following a stroll on Aldeburgh beach during an unseasonal spell of sunny weather. I imagine this place gets packed in the summer months. Basically it's an old-fashioned tea shop. I understand that it was established in 1949 by the eponymous Cragg Sisters but entered into other hands after the sisters passed on in the 1980s.... More

I went with my daughter and three grandchildren for afternoon tea. From the minute that we entered we felt uneasy as the waitress was picky don't let the children touch this or that please be careful etc which followed thru until we left. Even on going to the toilet! Cakes were nothing to write home about we left quite disappointed.... More

We had hoped to have a light lunch at the Tearoom after a morning concert at the Jubilee Hall; however the place was packed out when we arrived. However this was to our advantage, as we returned an hour later and partook of a splendid Afternoon Tea (although it was "officially" a little too early, according to the menu!) We... More

I visited Cragg Sisters tearoom with some friends during a weekend stay in Aldeburgh having read t he favourable reviews on Trip Advisor. All I can say is it has either gone dramatically down hill or we were just unlucky. The tearoom is small and is going for a vintage look. Along the window and shelves are displayed cake stands,...

We called in on Sunday afternoon, a good escape from the cold wind. Very friendly service, and a lovely cream tea. The tea was loose leaf in a teapot! We were offered water top-ups too. The tea was the "house blend", but there are many varieties on offer. These can also be purchased from the tea room to take away.... More

Have visited here a few times and never been disappointed. It's just like going back to the 1950's! Excellent choice of teas and the cakes are delicious. Good choice of sandwiches etc. Very good, friendly service. Often full, but worth going for a walk and returning. Best teas in Aldeburgh! Have vowed to return and have a full-blown Afternoon Tea!
