The food is alright but nothing special, a bit expensive too. But the garden outside is lovely on a sunny day, the village is beautiful.

Visiting Southill and you could quite easily be in Cornwall or even the Cotswolds......we struggled to park,so many cars out on the road,a typical tearoom,lovely old theme to the place.....a retro feel in my opinion,we sat outside as inside was very busy....but the setting was breath taking......great service and very friendly too,the finest tearoom i have visited this year.

Had a lunch at this small but charming Tea Room when in Biggleswade for a meeting. The menu is not extensive but has all the favourites you'd expect... Filled Jacket Spuds, sandwiches, cakes and scones, all at reasonable prices. The Tea Room is small, (about enough room for 20 or so persons inside, plus several tables outside if a nice... More

Very nice to have tea on a summer's afternoon in the quiet of the country side. Our first visit for my birthday today and will certainly visit again

Very pleasant on a nice day to sit in the garden. The staff are friendly and efficient and the prices very reasonable. There is also indoor seating plus a small village store. A little gem well worth a visit.

This tiny old fashioned tea rooms is a perfect place for lunch, or just a cuppa and cake...especially good if you book in advance for the cosy alcove to take someone special. All the cakes, scones and sandwiches are home made, and very tasty..booking is essential if you want to guarantee to get in!

We were lucky when we arrived mid morning that they had a free table as the majority were reserved for lunch. It's a tiny place with tables squashed in, but as it gets so busy they are always full. Food was very nice, reasonable price. There's a little gift shop there too. Parking wasn't that easy as its out on... More

The tea room used to be the Southill Post Office until it was closed down a few years ago. It is a jewel. We pride ourselves on home baked cakes and scones and hope that you enjoy them just as much as we do.
