Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Excellent Tea Room with superb staff and service. Menu covers all the things that you would expect from a Tea Room with beautiful cream teas through to brilliant toasted sandwiches with all the trimmings. Certainly a place to stop and have a lovely break.

Had lunch here on Good Friday before we visited Melford Hall. We received a really warm and friendly welcome from the lovely hosts. I ordered a toastie and pot of loose leaf tea, both of which were perfect. The tearoom is cosy without being overly...twee and the cake selection is out of this world. Highly recommend this little gem of a place in Long Melford High St. Will visit again next time we are in the area.More

Warm, welcoming, friendly staff provided a great service and tasty food. It is a tasty but fairly limited menu. Well priced and nicely presented. I really enjoyed my hot chocolate and tuna melt toastie.

Absolutely wonderful. A lovely atmosphere in a warm, cosy, and comfortable space. The team are so friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The food and coffee were excellent. As we left we had lovely chat with proprietor Richard and right-hand lady Tracy. We could not have had...a nicer lunch. We are lucky enough to be local and will be visiting regularly from now on.More

This tea room has recently changed management and the new owners have made the wise decision to, for now at least, keep things the same. Tea is good, cakes fresh and homemade. Highly recommended.

One of the friendliest and nicest cafes we have visited. The owners communicated well beforehand assuring me they could cater for someone with coeliac disease, even putting a slice of gluten free cake aside for me! They took great care to safely prepare my lunch...- everything was delicious. Highly recommend!More

A wonderful warm and friendly welcome. ( Dog friendly tea room!). I took my mum for a cream tea and they did not disappoint. Lovely home-baked scone and cream and jam. I had a slice of home made coffee cake and it was absolutely delicious...in fact I told the gentleman that served me that the recipe is so similar to how I bake my coffee cake. The premises was very clean and would highly recommend for a treat.More
