I met up with 5 friends on a sunny afternoon to have a catch up over a light lunch. When you enter the wooden hut that serves the food you are met by 2 huge baskets of home made scones so I had to have one. My friends had a selection of sandwiches and hoy quiches which looked and tasted... More

A nice place with a lovely garden. And with an interesting history. But we gave up, when we saw the amount of people waiting to order. It would have taken at least an hour. So we sat for a while in the garden, and then left even hungrier than when we came. But this was in July. Maybe better to... More

The Orchard is a favourite of ours. A stop-off to or from Cambridge, we often park up and plan our summer visits to include a walk along the Cam and tea and scones at the Orchard. The catering has changed a little and they are offering some really nice quiches (I had a roasted vegetable one that came in a... More

Quintessentially British! a pot of tea and a slice of cake in the orchard! Always busy but have ever been anywhere else where you can just sit back in deck chair in the middle of an apple orchard and enjoy the dappled shade, read the paper and people watch! Nice choice of cake and flavours of tea!

Lovely place! Well worth a visit! It was self service but the scones were delicious and no latte machine but they provided lots of very hot milk and I was pleased with the result. Lots of lovely cakes and the lunch menu looked interesting. Outside there were lots of tables and about 50 deck chairs scattered in the orchard. The... More

I have visited this tearoom many times but last week took a friend who had never been before. We sat amidst the apple trees and enjoyed excellent coffee and tasty cakes. We shall definitely make a rerurn visit before the summer is over.

After a long stroll the tea & excellent scones were much appreciated. Just managed to get the last helping of apple pie which had the biggest filling of apple I'd ever seen & refreshingly sharp without being cloyingly sweet. I was lucky to get in for the last one.

This is a really nice place to stop for a cuppa Its in the middle of Granchester and there are Cows wandering around etc.... There are deck chairs scattered around and it is so relaxed It is quite pricy ( being typical of Cambridge) During the Summer they have lots of shakespere plays that are very popular and always draw...

I have been many times to the Orchard Tea garden and its always a lovely experience. Its not cheap but then one wouldn't expect it to be. Parking is a nightmare in Granchester, the tea gardens now charge to park but it is redeemable so take plenty of change. There is plenty of shade,deck chairs and tables but you may... More
