    Lovely afternoon tea in welcoming, homely surroundings. Phoned ahead to say one of us was vegan. No scone option and just one vegan cake option;though this was delicious. Would return.

    The place is very cosy, tiny and well decorated. The service is very friendly and welcoming. We had sandwiches for lunch and it was very good with some cake and coffee at the end.

    After a morning of walking we were lucky enough to come across this delightful place. Full of quirky ornaments on the wall and with old china plates and tea cups - it felt like we’d stepped back in time. Our ploughman lunches and sandwiches were delicious. We couldn’t help but stay and try some of the cakes and scones which were tempting us during our lunch. We were very glad we did! The staff were wonderfully attentive and we were impressed with the complimentary tea pot top up. And to finish it all off it was dog friendly! Looking forward to going again!

    Great atmosphere. Every bit an old-fashioned tea room with outstanding tea-time treats and ambiance. We were with local friends on a wet and stormy Sunday and enjoyed a lavish late lunch. Sandwiches, cheese board, great coffee. Every table has a table cloth every cup, saucer and plate is made of bone china. Very friendly service.This was the best teashop we have been to for years. We don't have a car so it's a pity that Lavenham isn't on a railway line. Quite a find. Note to self: Go again soon.

    Came here for my birthday last week, cannot fault the service. The sandwiches and cakes were all fresh and homemade and totally yummy! The pots of tea kept on coming too. A lovely experience and will return again, for sure. Thanks to all the staff for making my birthday extra special.

    Arrived a bit early when the place was full & pretty hectic, no problems with a ten minute wait, our fault anyway. Lovely friendly greeting for the three of us, as the tea room gradually emptied of satisfied customers we were better able to understand why this tiny tea room is so popular. Quiet background Glenn Miller music compliments all the family & wartime pictures on the wall when our Americam allies were regulars in the area. We were booked in for a traditional English afternoon tea. All the crockery was best porcelain albeit mixed patterns but that actually added to the pleasure of the event. My generously sized pot of tea arrived & hit the spot, the ladies coffee arrived which sadly though enjoyable did not have the pizzaz of some other local brews. The food arrived beautifully layered on a lovely porcelain cake stand. Four different types of finger sandwiches, freshly made on tasty bread with a nice compliment of mustard & capers also in porcelain spoons. Next layer was the scones with lashings of jam & clotted cream plus sliced strawberries.Then the top layer of gorgeous layered chocolate cake & scrummy lemon dizzle cake. The piece de resistance miniature trifles in liquer glasses, only tiny but what a lovely touch. A thoroughly enjoyable interval in this historic town. Any Americans here who fancy a touch of nostalgia this is a must while you're with us, enjoy.

    So pleased to see that they welcome dogs, great selection of freshly baked scones, and an amazing slice of coffee and walnut cake with a scoop of ice cream, Gus the dog even got a treat from the owner.

    We had read that this is a dog friendly tea rooms and took our Standard Poodle for a quick cup of tea and cake. We had a lovely welcome and the choice of cakes and scones was amazing! I went for the Caramel Cake which came with a small scoop of matching ice cream. It was delicious and very moist. We were asked if we would like more tea, which was lovely. Our dog was also given a treat! We will definitely be back another day!

    We popped in for a mid morning cup of tea and ended up enjoying a pleasant hour chatting over tea and delicious home made cakes. Staff (the owner and her mum I think) were outstanding - friendly and helpful. We have a dog and there was no problem taking the dog in with us.

    This tea room is absolutely perfect. The venue, food, service and sheer attention to detail in all of these respects is par excellence! If I lived in Lavenham, I would visit at least one a week! HIGHLY recommended!

    What a lovely tea room. The owner, Amanda is so lovely and attentive. We had tea and scones which were very nice and they offer to top up the teapot so you can have your fill. Lovely! We would highly recommend.

    This is, in my experience, the most quintessential of English tearooms. Situated in market square it offers first class service, good choice of food, fresh breads from the local village bakery and it’s dog friendly. Ad hoc bone China, tea cosies and a lovely atmosphere and friendly service. We visited Sunday and enjoyed the chicken and vegetable soup. Afternoon tea is available. A must to visit.

    We (2 adults and 2 children) first visited in February last year and had a wonderful lunch. When paying I was told how well behaved my children were (teenagers). We had walked in without a booking and a table was available. We (same as above) tried again in October last year and as I walked in I could see all the tables were full. I asked about how long a table would be and was told they couldn’t say. I then noticed a table seemed to be finishing as they were piling up their plates etc which I saw as an indication that it would soon become free. I asked if we could return in about 20-30 minutes nodding in the direction of the table and was then told that a table couldn’t be saved. Remembering my first visit I was planning to attend the Christmas market so tried to make a booking for 2 adults and 4 children (teenagers as before). I was advised that no reservations were being made over that weekend due to the event taking place. So on the Saturday of the Christmas market I popped in and again could see that it was very busy, but enquired if I could return in a time that was suitable to accommodate my party. I was told that tables can’t be held and that they were very busy. I again said that I was happy to wait and could come back whenever suitable. I was advised that they were very busy and the lady walked back into the kitchen. Now I don’t dispute the food and service was great the first time. And although I didn’t get to sample the food on the 2nd or 3rd attempts I believe there is a failure in the service and conduct. Having worked in various restaurants/cafes and hotels it is not impossible to estimate a time when (as long as no bookings are made) a table will be free. And as stated on both occasions I was more than happy to return. Unfortunately I will be not attempting a 4th visit.

    Can not recommend highly enough. We’ve just had an absolutely lovely afternoon with my mum and sister today to celebrate my mums 70th birthday! The afternoon tea was to die for and the happy birthday serenade was an added unexpected bonus! Thank you so much to Amanda and her team, we will definitely be visiting again.

    What a great Tea room(if anyone wants to know how to do it well just go and visit this one), we found it by chance as it has opened since we last went to the town. The scones and cakes were great with plenty of options, the setting lovely and the staff brilliant.
