Visited on many occasions, however this is the first review. Lovely little place, usually go on Sundays to avoid busy times. Have had the Valentines cream tea before and it was amazing! A real special treat with large portions. After lunch we are usually too full for cake so like to take away a piece for later as they are... More

Popped in (during a weekend visit to Long Melford) for tea and cake on Sunday and again on Monday. Just had to go back for some more banana cake. The cakes are baked in the morning on the premises and they fresh and delicious. Lots of choice. A fantastic choice of teas too. Service was prompt and staff were polite,... More

We visited tiffins on Saturday for a baby shower in the room upstairs which is a lovely private room for about 12 people. We were allowed to decorate with balloons and banners to make it our own. We were attended to with a balance of lots of care and attention with being left to enjoy our own company. Just love... More

I visited here midweek with my children and it was a thumbs up all round. I opted for the lunchtime special Christmas Sandwich. A delicious generously filled chicken, bacon, stuffing and cranberry sandwich on soft tasty granary bread (could have had white or gluten free bread). This was served with a good sized salad garnish and crisps. Lighter eaters, the... More

Popped into Tiffins for coffee and a mid morning accompaniment. Excellent coffees as piping hot capucinos and a cafe latte, a really excellent fruit scone, and a good sized toasted tea cake. Happy staff, warm on a cool and damp day, and we set off feeling much better for our visit. Definitely the best place in Long Melford. Take a... More

Best scones I have had in ages. Big, served warm, freshly baked. Not difficult to do but surprisingly hard to find in a tea room! Loose leaf tea as well. Well done Tiffins, great job.

It's a rather grand name for a simple tea room but the cakes were tasty and the choice was great. Not the classiest decor but fun.
