The tea room used to be the Southill Post Office until it was closed down a few years ago. It is a jewel. We pride ourselves on home baked cakes and scones and hope that you enjoy them just as much as we do.

I am always impressed with Southill Tea Rooms having been on a number of occasions. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. Both the breakfasts and the afternoon tea are always good quality and good value. There is a lovely garden out the front and on a couple of weekend mornings we've used Southill as our breakfast stop on our... More

This beautiful little tea room is set in lovely surroundings and on a warm summer day it is the perfect place to sit outside and have a bite to eat. There is plenty to choose from on the menu, it is all perfectly cooked and there is a wide range of different teas to choose from. Even though it was... More

We sat in the garden for breakfast of sausage and egg baps,tea,coffee and juice. What more could you want than such a perfect start to the day? Staff friendly,great menu and dog-friendly garden too. Inside is quaint and cosy with mis-matched china and gorgeous cakes too!

Visited this little gem on the back of a few recommendations and we weren't disappointed! We arrived here one afternoon and were met with the view of a beautiful little cottage with a stunning garden! We opted to sit outside in the sun and ordered a sandwich for myself and a jacket potato for my partner. Both of us enjoyed... More

I visited here with with my mum for lunch one day as the weather was nice we thought we would have lunch in the garden. We both opted to have the BLT baguette.

I'm sorry you were disappointed with your visit, it's a shame you didn't make us aware at the time so we could have put it right for you at the time. The baguettes come from the bakers as mini baguettes though I agree they could be crispier at times. All our salad is sourced locally & grown in Bedfordshire wherever... More

We have not been back since the short closure for redecorating but hope the quality Breakfast Bap hasnt been refined. Great little tea room in the best tradition of good quality (service and food) at a decent price in a quaint setting.
