We had the pleasure of a lovely afternoon tea here today. There were 3 adults and 2 children and we all thoroughly enjoyed the food and the location. The way the house has been split and decorated is beautiful . The staff are really friendly...and explained what each dish was. We felt perfectly safe there and social distancing was adhered to. Can’t wait to go back again.More

My son and daughter in law got married at the Woburn Coffee House yesterday. The venue and the staff were superb. Although only 15 people were allowed to be there including the happy couple but it felt intimate rather than sparse, the wedding and reception...were cleverly arranged. It looked beautiful, with chair covers and flowers and looking out onto the garden. Luckily the weather was kind and we managed photographs outside. The staff were amazing, very attentive, discreet and glasses were topped up frequently! The food as ever was delicious. I have to say that when this was originally arranged it was for 30 people, then the rules changed to just 15. The Coffee House must have made a loss on the day or very little profit as we had exclusive use of the venue. Saying that nothing was too much trouble for them and we were welcomed warmly. I popped over to help the bride in the morning and they made every effort to make her feel like a queen, providing drinks and nibbles and helping in any way they could. I cannot recommend them highly enough as a wedding venue (and for their fabulous afternoon teas of which I have another already booked!). They really went above and beyond and made it a really special day for all of us.More

We had a lovely afternoon tea with a variety of delicious and unusual items. So much thought has been put into the menu. There were also Vegan and vegetarian options available. As usual the table settings were beautiful and good friendly service. The COVID measures...made our group totally at ease and we look forward to coming again in the future. Thank you for making us feel welcome as always.More

A beautiful setting - friendly staff - a gem of a chef - and a fabulous experience all round. Woburn Coffee House has made traditional afternoon tea just that bit different. Located in the heart of Woburn Village the building itself is interesting. As you...enter the relaxed atmosphere meets you. The Celebration Tea was outstanding with the savouries just leaving you wanting to try the next delight. Excellent value and we will definitely be returning to celebrate Christmas. Well done to all involved with this business a great team.More

Good front of house person, good Covid procedures, very knowledgeable waitress. However traditional tea was so very disappointing.

A lovely afternoon tea but without the usual sandwiches. Instead a variety of delicious and unusual items. Great thought has been put into the menu. Vegan and vegitarian options available. Waitress was lovely and the table settings well presented. COVID measures made one feel safe...and will certainly visit again soon. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.More

Had a wonderful afternoon tea today belatedly celebrating a big birthday after the lockdown. Not a sandwich in sight, instead a variety of delightful items offering a range of tastes. Fantastic vegetarian options and we all agreed our best afternoon tea yet (having been many...places including the Ritz) Tables nicely spaced for distancing and one way system in place so felt covid secure too.More

I have to say, this really is my last resort and something that I wouldn't usually do... However, the customer service I've had from Woburn Coffee House has been terrible - or should I call it non existent! Me & my 4 friends were heading...to Woburn Coffee House at the end of March for a Afternoon Tea Baby Shower - we couldn't wait to celebrate, however, due to the lock down at the end of March, unfortunately our Afternoon Tea was cancelled... The lady from Woburn Coffee House rang me on the week of our Afternoon Tea and explained that they would have to cancel the tea and they would refund my deposit money ASAP - brilliant! Now 8 weeks down the line, I have sent numerous emails to Karen, messages on Facebook - all which have been ignored and/or deleted... All I want is an explanation of when I will be receiving my refund, so I can then also refund my friends... Is that too much to ask?! When you have a business (I actually have one myself), I wouldn't dream of ignoring my clients/customers nor would I ever dream of keeping their money when I'd specifically told them I would be refunding them ASAP - what is the meaning of ASAP? Because I thought that was within the week, not 8 weeks down and still no communication let alone my money back? So with this in mind, there is no way I will be going to Woburn Coffee House when they reopen - I wish they'd treat their customers better, however I have spoken to quite a few people who are in the same boat as me, so I won't take it personally!! Hopefully Karen will see this soon and refund me - or is that wishful thinking?!More

We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon here with the family to celebrate my wife's birthday. Nothing was too much trouble to the team with great service before during and after the day. The room was beautifully decorate (Thankyou Floral Journey Milton Keynes) and the food spectacular....Made us all feel very special.More
