The staff are pleasant and welcoming and weather permitting you can sit outside. The tea room is dog friendly and is well positioned for the high street and the shore.

We went here twice in our short stay and were very impressed with the standard of food and service. The cakes and scones etc.. were of an exceptional quality and all apparently baked in house. You would be hard pressed to beat the quality here. It is a tearoom so don't expect the range a restaurant would offer but for... More

As my wife's family had long time connections to Aldeburgh we had a day there with my mother in law(92 years). As she had known the Tea Rooms since the Cragg sisters owned it we dropped in for afternoon tea. They did not have espresso coffee so my wife did not order anything. The 'older' member of the family ordered... More

Visited this tearoom twice over the Easter fortnight. On both occasions we were made most welcome. The tearoom was busy on both our visits. Service was very good. Our sandwich, cakes and drinks were well prepared and presented. The premises are small and therefore gets full easily. Very small outdoor seating area at rear is very nice in sunny weather....

Bit of a cool welcome but member of staff soon warmed up. We were allowed to take the dog in with us which was nice. Only reason I gave this 'average' was that two sandwiches, two cups of tea and a very ordinary bit of cake came to £18. Was very busy when we were there so kept getting bumped... More

We were in Aldeburgh for a short visit and stumbled upon this lovely tea room. It was so quaint inside! The service was fantastic! We asked for some tea as we couldn't choose - there were so many options! The lady brought us some really lovely tea. I had the absolutely scrumptious coffee cake, and ate far too much cake... More

You come to expect fresh contents on fresh bread when eating out but the sandwiches here surpassed expectations. The choice of teas was outstanding, the Assam without milk was so refreshing.
