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.

Good Service

We enjoyed nice cakes and a pot of tea served by nice friendly ladies. A warm welcoming place. There is a small gift section as well.

My friend and I visited this tea room whilst cycling in the area. The staff are excellent, helpful and friendly whilst the ambience and presentation is great. It's quaint and the mismatched shabby-chic crockery works well. The lattes & cakes (we had a slice of tiffin and a slice of coffee & walnut cake) were good. We returned later in... More

Over the years have been a regular visitor to this delightful tearoom. Changed hands in May and pleased to report that it continues to deliver excellent food and service. Note not in Biggleswade nearer to Shefford. Worth booking to ensure table especially in winter unless you wish to take advantage of outside seating.

Visited today as a party of ten for afternoon tea. Sandwiches, cakes and scones were delicious and plentiful. The staff were lovely making sure we had endless supplies of tea and coffee. A really fantastic place.

Vintage floral china on embroidered tablecloths, tasty homemade cakes, and freshly made baps, baguettes or jacket potatoes with a range of fillings. Reasonably priced and very pretty interior. Lots of tables outside in large garden. A real find.

We were in the area and checked on Trip Advisor for somewhere local to have a little snack, this place had good reviews so we headed here and weren't disappointed. Lovely selection of cakes on display and a good selection of drinks and other local produce and gift temptations. We ordered a breakfast roll and HAD to try some cake...and... More

Lovely out of the way tea room. Idea for a breakfast bap on a Saturday morning having walked the dog. Good choice of light lunches, scones, cakes or an afternoon tea. Pays to book in advance if going for lunch at the weekend.

I visited the tea room with my boyfriend, best friend and her boyfriend following a family recommendation and we were certainly more than satisfied with our visit. Myself and my boyfriend opted for the quiche and the other two had baguettes. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food and were even more impressed to learn that much of the food is... More
