I can strongly recommend this lovely English Tea Room & Restaurant located in the picturesque heart of Suffolk. I was the first customer of the day and it wasn't long before I was tucking into traditional English breakfast with all the trimmings. The service was friendly and efficient and as more customers arrived, the place started to get a real... More

We visited this supposed tea room/restaurant today and I have to say from start to finish this was probably one of the worst culinary experiences of my life. Firstly we were told that none of the "specials" on the board were available (at 12.30), whilst the waitress stood bizarrely in front of the board. We were then told there was... More

Dear Anton D, I felt obliged to reply to this review, so as we could give our side of the story. For a start it was untrue all the specials weren't available, everything on the board was available and i'm not sure how you thought otherwise, because the board was out and our waitress said just as much. Your friend... More

The four of us had tea and scones in this 15th century building. The savoury and fruit scones we all shared were delicious. Menu's were in short supply as tourists take them for souvenirs. The front room is such a quaint little room. Go have a look upstairs whilst you are there in terms of being crooked.

This funny little house is as darling insdie ans it is outside! My friends and I had cream teas and cakes, the former of which were still steaming from the oven, the latter of which was home-made and delectable! Everything arrived on mismatched antique china, dusted with powdered sugar and enormous strawberries and was enjoyed beyond measure!

The Tea Rooms are located on the ground floor of Lavenham’s famous Crooked House. I thoroughly enjoyed a beautifully prepared ham and mustard sandwich, accompanied by a side salad, coleslaw and potato crisps. Service from the two friendly ladies was excellent. Afterwards I browsed the upstairs gallery, two rooms full of antiques. A couple of days later I returned for... More
