Afternoon Cuppa

Popped to Melford, hope this tearoom would be open it was, joy! Husband and I had afternoon tea, which was a massive scone, clotted cream, butter, jam, a strawberry and tea of your choice from their tea menu. Was delicious. Small eating space but cosy. Lovely decore.

Fantastic afternoon tea shared with a friend. welcoming and friendly staff and the most delicious afternoon tea i've had in a long time! The combination of the posset with the scones and cake meant I enjoyed it without feeling over-full as can often happen with a cream tea. Would recommend to anyone!

I visit here regularly with my baby, the cakes are amazing!! When I was feeding my baby the staff were extremely helpful and brought me over a glass of water, very nice touch. Best tearoom I have been to in Suffolk and I am a top tea drinker and a great cake eater!!

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
