Our running club comes here for coffee and cake runs a couple of times per year. With a big group the weather needs to be good so you can sit outside. It was busy on our visit, service was good and the food as ever was very good. Will keep on coming to the unique location and the nice cake.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon in September and sat outside for tea and cake. The cakes were very nice and the tea is served in China cups which is nice. The place was busy with lots of people coming and going. The garden was nice to sit in and this is a lovely place to pass the afternoon. Will... More

We are visiting Southill Village Tea Rooms for a few years now and always thought that was THE place to have a cream or high tea. I used to say that they make the best Cherry & Almond Scones in Beds, Herts & Cambs. The last couple of visits were left us with a bitter sense of disappointment, as the... More

I am sorry that you had a poor experience at the tea room recently, and even sorrier that you didn't tell us at the time that the scones were not up to scratch, so that we could put it right for you. If you would like to identify yourself on a future visit, we will be more than happy to... More

This is an excellent place to go for afternoon tea or a light lunch. Make sure you book in advance as it is a small place and very popular. The garden is lovely and offer more sitting but this of course depends on the weather. Delicious scones and cakes all freshly made and very friendly service with a good choice... More

Visited on a Wednesday for lunch after 1pm and it was packed. An indication of its popularity. It's a bit cramped inside when full. Food was lovely and reasonably priced. All in all a great experience and highly recommended. Will be visiting regularly.

Always assured of a great time, relaxing in the shade of Southill Tea Rooms garden trees, fine bone china & fine food, & we were not disappointed this time either. Warm Cheese Scones with a chunk of cheddar cheese, sweet chutney & a little salad, Breakfast & Green Tea, all served with a smile. The place was 75% full, as... More

Very pleasant garden setting, also tables available inside. Basic menu, but what was on offer was very fresh, mostly home made and good value for money. Lovely to have a pot of tea and china cups. All very nice, restful and friendly.

Tempted by an all-day breakfast, but settled for a cheesy scone, cheese and chutney - beautifully served on bone china by efficient and friendly waitress. Love it here and find any excuse to make the 20 mile round-trip to this pretty village. Wish the venture continued success.
