With friends wandering around Long Melford and came across this busy tearoom. Cake selection superb and honeycomb hot chocolate very tasty. Pleasant welcome from the staff who couldn't have been more helpful. Prompt service and thoroughly enjoyable.

Maybe TripAdvisor should add a 6th star rating just for this place! Firstly, the greeting when you walk in is amazing every time, the lovely ladies who serve you are polite and helpful. I often visit with a friend so maybe I get used to the welcome - but yesterday I visited with grandparents and they couldn't be more helpful... More

Hard to make a choice from the excellent selection of cakes on offer! In the end the cheese scone was one of the best we've tasted and the mince pie tart with crumble topping a nice alternative to the usual. Tea, hot chocolate and salted caramel latte all excellent. We'll definitely be back!

Went there on 1st December for Christmas afternoon tea and can honestly say it was wonderful; cakes were delicious and moist, great tea selection, lovely staff and in a cosy homely setting. Comparing Tiffins to Fortnum and Mason (where I had afternoon tea a couple of weeks ago) I can definitely say my experience at Tiffins was a lot more... More

My friends treated me to a surprise baby shower here, afternoon cream tea loveliness! We had a little private room upstairs for the 8 of us, felt really intimate and private! Perfect for girly giggles! Wide choice of teas, sandwiches and homemade cakes. Great cosy vintage decor. Couldn't fault this place x

First time visit to Tiffins. Inside, the decor is unlike your usual tea/coffee outlet....in a very good way. It makes you feel like you can either chat away with friends or curl up with a good book. I chose from the Christmas menu: Turkey, stuffing and cranberry wirh just enough side salad and crisps. I can't comment on the hot... More
