We had some lovely sandwiches at The Tea hut, bacon and Brie and mozzarella and tomato which were both delicious I've been here a few time and amazed how many staff they have! My only criticism is the way the food is delivered, if you label your tables your staff wouldn't wander so much shouting out for your food order... More

What a perfect find. The Tea Hut, Woodbridge, is full of friendly staff welcoming you from the moment you arrive. We have 2 dogs and they are more than welcome. Wide variety food at such good prices which certainly doesn't compromise the good quality. Worth waiting that bit extra time for the good food and service. Love it!! Thank You... More

I guess the reason they have so many staff is the fact that the table numbers are so small they spend ages walking around with people's food and drink trying to find them. That aside the menu was good and the service polite and friendly. Will go again and sample some other things.

We walk along the river regularly and it is very tempting to stop for a cuppa! Friendly staff and a lovely place to sit, either on the outside decking or in the bright, clean interior. Near enough to town to walk over and meet friends or for treats on a long walk....It gets very busy at times but that's because... More

We've always had a friendly welcome when visiting The Tea Hut, even the dog! The staff happily accommodated my aunt in her wheelchair and the building has easy ramp access. The menu is varied from light bites to more substantial meals. Food is well prepared and tasty.

What a wonderful little place. We stopped here for a cuppa as we were walking the dogs along the River Deben. Of course you can't just have a cup of tea...! I had a bacon, egg and sausage roll and my husband had just a sausage in a roll. They were amazing. The sausages were the best I'd tasted in... More

Our visit was for an early lunch on a gorgeous April morning and the decking of the Tea Hut was a perfect place to spend a relaxing hour. The service was chaotic with orders and tables confused but the young Saturday staff were so charming that we certainly didn't mind. We followed excellent and mellow coffee with a crab salad...

Stopped in here for cups of tea and it is a lovely venue but it was half term and it was full of children with family. That's not the tea huts fault, but allowing someone in with two dogs possibly could be, as the dogs were sat in the aisle with children having to avoid them. Busy place which I'm... More
