Visited Long Melford with my mum and we popped in here for a cuppa plus scone and the trimmings. We were not disappointed! The scone was absolutely perfect - very slight crunch on the outside, light and moist on the inside, fruity. Divine. Gorgeous jam and cream too. Sat in the small courtyard out the back and enjoyed the autumn... More

Stopped here for a spot of lunch, A favourite place for my mother. The food was pleasant enough, wholesome and filling though luke warm. The welcome and service was pleasant enough and the price seemed reasonable. It just seemed a bit average which is a shame as it has the potential to be absolutely stunning.

We are local to Tiffins, and often pop in for a treat or a lazy weekend breakfast/brunch. The service is always good, the owners are very friendly and the staff pleasant and efficient. Whenever we have friends to stay, they ask to come here for afternoon tea - in fact we suspect that people only visit us so they can... More

We had visited once before and found it okay, this time was poor. I would at least expect that a tea shop would know how to make a hot cup of tea. I suppose we could excuse the slow service but the cakes where also pretty average, worst Victoria sponge in a long while.

We stopped for a cream tea at Tiffins, Long Melford, recommended by they china shop opposite, Tasty scone and jam - as a departure from the norm I had Lapsang souchong tea - it looked very weak, but in fact had a nice smoky taste. Also had a large piece of coffee/walnut cake - delicious. Sat in the back garden... More

Excellent tea made with loose tea and not bags. Splendid fresh scones with jam and clotted cream. Friendly and helpful staff.

We were drawn into the tea shop by the lovely cakes we could see through the window. We were met with a very warm welcome and had a look at the cakes before choosing where to sit. Another reviewer said this tea shop was cramped and had a cobweb complete with spider. It was a very old building and the... More

Delicious teas, very interesting varieties and also good coffee. The cakes are to die for..chocolate with Guinness and many other super cakes and scones. This is well worth visiting and there are a few rooms plus an outside area in the rear of the premises so it is larger than it appears at first glance.
