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

Best afternoon ever & believe me we've eaten a few! The scones, jam & cream are to die for best ever. Charming place, lovely staff & picturesque village. Well worth a visit - we'll be back..

I visited Munnings with my mum and three children. This was my mum's second visit. It is indeed the front room of a crooked house in historic Lavenham which makes it so atmospheric and charming. If you don't like a cramped place to eat then this is not the place for you. The lady was very accommodating by way of... More

We arrived at the tea rooms at 2pm as my husband had booked for us to have afternoon tea as a birthday treat for me. We were told they didn't have a table free and to come back in 10 minutes. 10 minutes later we looked in again, but still no table (note there are only 4 tables in the... More

We enjoyed delicious, salmon cream cheese sandwiches, and bacon and cheddar cheese quiches. We had scones with clotted cream and tea. I would have liked to have had a variety of tea cakes instead of choosing one from the traditional tea menu.
