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.

Liked this place - slightly different choices for lunch and very good variety of excellent cakes - so good we went for lunch one day and came back the next for afternoon tea.All home made and very light sponges. Can especially vouch for the coffee cake,chocolate and Guinness and Victoria sponges.

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.

Went for lunch. Both myself and my wife had a brie, tomato and pesto tart served with salad. I think the tart was probably fine but it was difficult to tell. The salad was freshly washed and spread across the plate with a dressing in pretty patterns around the outside to give an upmarket look. Unfortuately the tart was then... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry you did not enjoy your Goats cheese, tomato and red pesto tart and found it to be soggy. This tart was a gluten free option and the pastry is made with a flour which is potato starch based. The result is a slightly softer consistency to a... More
