I hate submitting poor or average reviews, but I always tell the truth with my reviews, they are based on my actual experiences. This was not our first visit to the tea room. I believe it to be visit 4. The service each time has crept in a downwards direction (sadly). The service we received this time was poor. The... More

We found this tea shop to be so good the first time we tried it, that we returned twice more during our week's holiday. Each time the service was prompt, the peppermint tea delicious, and the cakes (of which there was a good assortment) excellent. Coffee comes in a generous cafetiere. All served in a quaint, old fashioned atmosphere without... More

When you are in this small tea-room, you are back in the 50's, with old magazines on the wall, old books on the shelves and a vintage aga cooker too. The atmosphere is familiar and relaxed. As well as the service. You will find a good selection of brown, green and white teas but also herbal teas and hot chocolate.... More

I have to agree with the previous reviewer. Was really keen to try the tea room based on a magazine article recently and Trip Advisor reviews. It didn't help that we were seated right next to the toilet door, and had to endure a continuous procession of loo customers! The loo itself was far too small and cramped, and there... More

This is how quaint teashops should be. Friendly service, excellent tasting teas & lovely scones/cakes. The earl grey tea was superb - it just shows how awful the supermarket teabags are when you can get flavoursome tea like this. The cream teas came with enough thick clotted cream to cause a heart attack. Quirky but nice. Recommended.

Lovely little tea room with a tiny outdoor area. Very very busy and quaint. Made a special effort to visit but was a bit disappointed. Tea and slice of cake / scone with jam & cream with coffee. £10.00 Tea was OK , cake very very sweet and nothing special ( butter cream was very thick almost like a frosting).... More

I had the earl grey which was made with leaves ( as all the teas) and was extremely tasty. You can buy tea leaves to take home. They sell cakes etc and there is room to sit outside. The toilet is the smallest I've ever been in but everything from toilet, wash basin, hand towels is cleverly positioned in such... More

Made an almighty mistake last time we came for a day trip to Aldeburgh. So this time I played it safe and checked out TripAdvisor well in advance. So glad that this website helped us discover this little gem. Enter and you step back in time to a by-gone era of Englishness. Finger sandwiches, old china cups, checked table-tops and... More

This tearoom lies slightly away from the main hub of the High St and the theme is ' a return in time ' giving it a certain charm of it's own. It was a hot day when we visited and, we therefore, opted for fresh lemonade, which was a good choice. The sandwiches and toasted teacakes we ordered were fresh,... More

Deceptively spacious interior with a small garden too. Reasonable prices and a nice cup of coffee and tea. Cakes looked good but did not try.
