Exotic teas in 'exotic' Clevedon!

A great sea-front location over looking the Severn Estuary. Afternoon tea and 'tiffin' was a real treat. Quick and friendly service, a wide choice of teas, including quite few 'speciality' brews, 'tiffin' and lots of cakes! Don't miss it the next time you visit the town.

Great news that you managed to get a table with us especially this past Bank holiday menu when the team looked after over 800 guests. Very pleased to see you had good service and you loved the location. It is very special. All our fare is freshly prepared and 80% locally sourced avoiding the mass produced cheaper options. Salads are... More

We visited for a late lunch on bank holiday Monday and left really disappointed. On arrival we were told that there were no seats inside so we would have to sit outside, despite there being a few empty tables within. We accepted this and chose some seats outside, and were assured that they'd be over with the menu. We were... More

Thanks for writing in and bringing your thoughts to our attention. Poor or terrible service and Tiffin rarely appear together, so we are obviously disappointed you felt this way and having spoken with the team to understand what happened, I know they are sad too. Let's clear up a couple of your points. The only reason a table can't be... More

The sea front at Clevedon is not blessed with a great choice of places to eat, at least not on this Saturday bank holiday long weekend. Our usual haunt was closed for a private function and the Italian restaurant was also closed at lunch time. This left us no choice but to eat at Tiffin. Hard working staff did their... More

Close to Bristol lies the seaside town of Clevedon. This tea and lunch cafe is in sight of the ocean and a view of Wales in the distance. The tea and food was wonderful with very nice staff and homemade deserts.

It means as you found out our food and drink is of a lovely quality and avoids the mass produced cheaper option which is more for convieniance and profit than taste!

Tiffin's is a lovely little tea room on the sea front in Clevedon. Nice food, friendly staff, but we were shocked when we asked about baby changing facilities.
