Went in to this tearoom for lunch,it was quite busy but did not have to wait long for service.
I had a cheese & ham toastie which came with some salad leaves. £5.75
Hubbie had the soup that came with a small roll. £5.25
Pot of tea for 2 £4
Food was good & tasty.
Do think its a little pricey for what you got .
The real let down was being given chipped saucers

The best cakes in my life. No messing. I could tell you about the Mad Hatter in Masham market place, Mount Pleasant in Goostrey (neither still running)... this was transformational. Lightness, texture, flavour - all superlative. I have to have more! The orange and almond cake was a Chateau D'Yquem experience: beyond reasonable expectations of what a slice of cake can do. A simple scone - a slight crunch on the outside, and no hint of doughy-ness inside. If I ruled the world, every day would burst with these things.

This little cafe was a Godsend. Staying in Lavenham for a long weekend, the coffee in our hotel left rather a lot to be desired. Chilli and Chives became part of the morning routine.

The mochas and coffees are lovely but the hot chocolate is exceptionally delicious!

The cakes are also shockingly good and they have fresh out of the oven scones (both fruit and cheese) each morning.

This place is an absolute delight and I will definitely return.

Popped in here for tea and cake with friends whilst visiting Lavenham. We all had different cake and scones and they were all delicious. Really nice pots of tea as well, my Earl Grey was excellent. The lady serving was friendly and chatty as well. Very nice.

We had a pot of tea and delicious tea cakes with butter and jam. Our pot of tea was excellent...made with loose tea. The staff were very attentive and the shop was full all the time we were there. Obviously a very popular place. Cakes looked delicious too. There were also some greetings cards and gifts for sale. Would certainly recommend this place.
