Since we first came to live in the village a year ago we ventured in for tea and cake to see what it would be like to bring visiting friends and family. From the very first day we have not been disappointed. Since then we have dropped in quite a few times. It is always a friendly place where we... More

A good tea room which we had visited a couple of years ago. It was busy. We found a table and the waitress presented us with menus. Frankly, we were tempted to stay for lunch but we had promised ourselves food in the Black Lion later on! There was plenty to choose from but we ended up with tea and... More

After seeing this place a few times my partner and I ventured inside and we're impressed. We had the traditional afternoon tea and struggled to eat all the lovely food! The only slightly negative part of our trip was that two other tables, who arrived after us, got their orders taken first. Overall this place offers a fantastic selection of... More

This 60th birthday tea had been booked on the week that the new owner took over, so the person taking the booking was a bit reticent to do so. However, when we arrived, the booking had remained and we received an excellent welcome. The menu was described clearly by a very helpful lady and when the tea arrived, followed by... More

Myself and colleagues often like to treat ourselves to lunch on a Friday afternoon. As we are based in Acton, we have found Long Melford as the most convenient location.. we used to struggle on deciding where to go but now we have no problem...it's Tiffins everytime. Their selection of Sandwiches, Jacket Potatoes, Wraps and more is perfect for a... More

Me and my husband have been visiting the Tiffins Tearoom in Long Melford and I was absolutely amazed and fallen in love with the tearoom. There are about 25 different cakes to choose from, a great choice of fresh loose tea (which I love). We have ordered our afternoon tea and it was just delicious and a big portion. The... More

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.
