“Just scrummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

I took my friend for an afternoon tea treat. Heard so many good things about the place so had to give it a go! It was awesome. Sandwiches and cakes were lush. Staff sat us down quickly even though there was a queue! Def recommend going. Can always waddle round after and look at the goodies on sale

“GREAT FOR LUNCH BUT BREAKFAST VERY POOR”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We love going to Beckworth for lunch or afternoon tea which are both superb.

We decided to try their Breakfast the other day and I can only describe it as very average and nowhere near the same standards as Lunch or afternoon tea.

Maybe it will improve with time!

“Quality dining in the countrtyside.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I am a frequent visitor here simply because the food here is consistently excellent and well presented. You need to get there at about 12 noon if you want to avoid queueing for lunch. The waiting staff are usually efficient and polite. The afternoon teas are a feast for the eyes and never fail to impress. prices are slightly higher than other eating places liocally but you do get high quality produce freshly prepared and made to order. The cakes and scones are delicious and freshly baked. You have a choice of eating indoors in a coffee lounge style restaurant, in a conservatory or outside in warm weather. Once seated you have your table for as long as you like and are not under pressure to vacate it. If you have not been before give it a go and you'l soon find you'll be hooked-just like I am!

“Average breakfast”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We have been to Beckworth Emporium a few times before for lunch or afternoon tea and it has always been fantastic. We decided to go for breakfast one day expecting the same tasty food and great presentation but were disappointed. The eggs florentine were just plonked on a plate with no presentation apart from a couple of sprigs of parsley, the egg white was watery and the muffin was as thin as pitta bread. There was no children's menu so they made up a plate of scrambled eggs and a sausage which was fine but disappointed our three year old hoping for pancakes! We won't be visiting for breakfast again and would not recommend it.

A very well organised restaurant with high quality food ! Gets very busy but usually only a short wait at busy times.
