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

Our last visit was in the summer and it was very good all round.My family and I decided to go again the other day to try out the festive sandwich which I had read on this site how good it was.Unfortunately when I asked about the menu it was bluntly said it was on the board downstairs and what the...

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.

We stopped in today to sample some different teas and drinks. It was a lovely experience in a somewhat quirky tea rooms. The decoration works, but is a hotchpotch of styles, with mismatched chairs and art ranging from shabby chic, to country inn. The ambiance however is 100% tea room, with quiet jazz in the background, and the clinking of... More

Booked this after it came up on my Facebook page. It's not local for us but worth the journey. Lovely quaint tearoom with fantastic service. Really enjoyed being able to choose our sandwich & cake from a wide choice selection. Only negative was cake slices were rather large which meant we couldn't eat it all though we were offered to...

If you want to have a dainty but filling lunch and a delicious cake (or few!) this is the place! Really enjoyed our first visit today. Husband was impressed with his ploughmans and I had a tasty panini, with hot drinks of mocha, real tea and followed by a caramac scone! Worth the drive out too. Wonderful service from the... More
