Not just a cafe not just a coffee house. The whole tea experience was great. They have got it right in every detail from the ambience, the decor, the crockery and menu. Even a kids afternoon tea menu which we found fabulous. On exit we were full to the brim and it didnt break the bank. So much charm it... More

I saw the children's afternoon tea advertised and thought it would be a nice treat and something different for me and my sons. It didn't disappoint! My boys loved it, and are already asking when we can go back! I had a jacket potato which came with a lovely side salad and was delicious. The staff were really friendly and... More

Afternoon Tea means different things to different people. I'm a Worzel Gummidge afternoon tea person and enjoy nothing better than a cup of tea and a slice of cake. So with a good idea where I was going and my wife (Lynda) navigating (where she thought we where going I have no idea) we popped out from Chelmsford. A long... More

We visited Tiffins because it was top of trip advisor and it didn't disappoint! We sat in a lovely little courtyard out the back. Our order was quickly taken and we were soon enjoying lovely milkshakes from cool glassware. Our food came soon after and I had made an ordering mistake - I'm vegetarian and I didn't realise that Chilli... More

Following a horrible holiday abroad we were pleased to get home and do some very English activities - afternoon tea being first on the agenda for our final week of the holiday!

this was`a visit to the area and we were in need of refreshment. The tea selection was very impressive as was the selection of fare. It was after we`had eaten that I spied sausage rolls, so what to do? answer take them home for later, they were all that they were cracked up to be. A visit well worth it

We sat outside in the lovely courtyard and enjoyed delightful service and proper drinks. The walls were cleverly adorned and the whole place seemed really tastefully decorated. Smashing venue!

Tiffin's has a lovely atmosphere and the music sets the scene. Real tea leaves served in large tea pots, lovely wooden boards for plates and seemingly bottomless silver buckets of crisps. The staff were helpful, cheerful and friendly.
