Had a wonderful afternoon tea today with two friends. Able to choose our sandwich fillings and the staff were very friendly and patient as there was such an amazing choice of cakes it took us ages to decide. We weren't rushed and as we couldn't finish everything we each had a doggy bag to take home. Would definitely recommend.

We have recently visited Tiffins on a number of occasions for coffee and cakes. I have to say that we found the experience very pleasant not only for the great food/coffee but for the way the staff welcomed us to the premises. In a short time they have transformed the building into an eating place they can be proud of.... More

My husband and I went here for lunch to celebrate my birthday. The food tasted delicious. A couple of people near us had the afternoon tea, which I am definitely going to go back for on another occasion. The staff were really friendly and the decor was very attractive. I imagine it gets really busy in the summer.

Delightful! Afternoon tea at Tiffin's today, the cakes and sandwiches were scrumptious. We couldn't eat everything so Faye even boxed up our goodies, and we took then home (next door!). The cats got the cream!! @ Mangospersians

We popped into the emporium for a Sunday afternoon tea, cake and girly catch up and what a gem Tiffins tea is! The wide selection of cakes and scones are all homemade and delicious and the tea options were fantastic. The interior is beautiful and little touches like the Alice in Wonderland style china make you feel like you're at... More

Charming tea room with new owner. Lovely atmosphere, friendly owner and staff. Brilliant cheese scones. Coffee just how we like it. The best tearoom in Long Melford.

Tiffins used to be a great favourite of mine and I have told many people to come here for friendly service and good food. Since reopening it may look better but it is no longer dog friendly. What a dissapointment. It was its biggest draw. There are other cafes just as nice as we found one just up the road... More

We are sorry you have felt the need to rate us terrible for the fact we have changed our no animals policy but the majority of people have welcomed the change as we are an eating establishment and we wish to maintain high food hygiene standards, we certainly welcome customers with dogs with tables to the front of the shop...

We enjoy visiting Long Melford and searching the shops for those little gems that are always waiting to be discovered. There is a huge choice of places for afternoon tea, including hotels, pubs and restaurants. Today, we chose Tiffins, because it is a tea room and nothing else. We were lucky, Tiffins can only seat 12 and there was just... More

Hi John, I think you have made a mistake as we do not sell tea cakes and we seat 50, I think you may mean fine foods ?? Which is a few doors along and you may wish to review them as I think you visited Ann the owner, please accept our apology if we are wrong Kind Regards Faye More
