Reviewed February 11, 2013

We stopped here on the way back from Suffolk as we love the jam, particularly the greengage which is hard to come by. The restaurant was packed with people so we went on to their cafe in Heybridge for tea. The museum was fascinating, not just for the jam making, but the record of the lives of the people in the area. The shop was fantastic and I think we emptied shelves with jams you can't find in our local supermarkets. We will definitely go back.

We had cream tea (good scones & of course lovely jam). The museum was small but had some interesting pieces. Very nice gift shop with every type of jam & chutney including very obscure varieties, also gift items. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

We had a lovely time though it could have been better. The place is a bit noisy and is not welcoming though it is very nice... Hard to explain but definitely not the best though very good. We only had afternoon tea, the tea was very good, the hot chocolates were ok, the jam were from the factory and the scones were very good but not as good as some I had already had...
I'd go again but not as a special treat.
The museum is ok. The shop is very nice.

Stopped off at Tiptree on the way to colchester. The tea room is fantastic with traditional home made scones and cakes on offer. The service is friendly and the place very popular judging by the queue on our way out. The museum is very small but the small shop was excellent with a lot of produce that isn't available at your local supermarket.

My husband, mother-in-law and myself visited the Tiptree Jam factory today. My M-I-L is jam mad and was in her element in the lovely shop filled with every conceivable Wilkin and Son conserve and marmalade. She bought quite a few nice gifts for Christmas. We then had a look around the museum which is small but interesting. As some other reviewers have said, it's a shame not to be able to look at the jam being made in the factory, maybe a video could be played or at least some pictures on the walls showing the modern methods of production?
We had lunch in a very busy tea room but we were served promptly by a friendly waitress. Lunch was lovely, we all had salads or sandwiches which were all served with a fresh salad, great bread and Wilkins's relishes of course.
All in all a lovely way to spen a few hours whatever the weather.
