Fascinating building crammed with character and a good cup of tea

I just had to visit the crooked house in Lavenham. The building looks wonderful from the outside and is equally interesting on the inside. As a tea room it works quite well and there are a huge number of items including pictures for sale which are very tempting. I had a pot of tea and a scone which... read more

If you love qwerky country cottages, home made sandwiches with lots of filling, scones and cakes to die for then this is the place for you. This is my second visit and love it even more. Staff are attentive and friendly even though they are busy and often have to turn away casual callers. If you plan to visit please... More

Amazing building, maybe 5 or 6 different sized tables beautifully set with tablecloths and pretty dainty China. Very good choice of teas and coffee, not to mention tempting cakes and scones. Not sure if there were more tables upstairs but the place is so eye-catching it seemed very popular

A real English place for tea and cake, especially with cream. The sandwiches looked yummy too. Real China and lovely tea pots.

Mnnings came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. I was planning to visit Lavenham with some friends visiting from Japan and booked by phone the night before. The owner took the booking and was utterly charming. The Crooked House is delightful and rather quirky, with friendly, if slightly rushed staff, and just four tables. Our guests were charmed and...

The lady who owns Munnings cannot do enough for her customers. My grandchildren had the breakfast of eggs/bacon/toast and really enjoyed it. The food is so lovely and beautifully presented that one does not know what to choose. I just wish we lived close by and then we could go more often! Well done Crooked House chefs.

This place has great food at a great price. The staff are nice and the place is nice. You get a lot for your money and they even let us take the cake away with us. The coffee is not too bad either!!!!

Toooo much. Sandwiches that are a meal in themselves. Beautifully fresh, huge scones and best clotted cream ever. Staff ever helpful and polite. So why only 99% and not 100%. Well, we would of liked a traditional afternoon tea. Ie one that comes on a three tier cake stand, that would of ment smaller sandwiches. Never written a review complaining... More
