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.

Charming place so so disappointed to be served a white bread stale sandwich and tinned soup. Tea was weak, please buy decent tea bags to put in your china tea pots. I'd love to come back when you sort your food out.

I've visited Fox in the stables several times with my husband and have always loved it, so yesterday I visited with some friends for afternoon tea. We were amazed at the value for money! I've always enjoyed coming here to eat as the owner is...vegan so we are always so well catered for. The afternoon was exceptional though. From the biggest fruit scones I've ever seen, to delicious, freshly made sandwiches. There were so many cakes that we all needed doggy bags to take some home. Absolutely brilliant tea room for Vegans, veggies or anyone that likes good food. All set in beautiful surroundings with the added bonus of rescue animals that you can meet too. 100% recommend.More

WHAT A LITTLE GEM Vibrant cafe situated in the countryside, with picturesque views all around. It even has a mini farm, with Chickens Goats and Alpacas, which our children absolutely love. I've visited the wonderful Fox in the Stables a few times now. It never...fails to impress. AMAZING food, FANTASTIC Staff who friendly and very tentative. The atmosphere is warm and cosy, with decor to match. If you visit once, you will visit again and again...guaranteed. Highly recommend ☕️🍰🥪🍟🐔🦙🐐🦊More

A large menu to cater for all needs, from simply a hot drink or an all-day breakfast, during your visit to this large complex of antique shops and farm shop. The approach road is narrow with pull-ins so be aware.

My best friend booked her 40th here. All the staff were so lovely and went above and beyond to make the event run as smoothly as possible. The food was beautiful and the cake stands were such a lovely touch. I’ve never had a vegan...afternoon tea and it was lovely! Props to the baker! Thanks again so much and sorry about the walls!

Me and my young daughter came in for some brunch and we really enjoyed it. Delicious thick bread and fresh eggs. Nicely decorated with a calm and relaxed vibe. My daughter really enjoyed the small petting zoo outside! We’re defiantly visiting again.

Went here with the family and was really impressed with everything from start to finish. We received a really warm friendly welcome from the owner Rob who showed us to a comfy sofa! I love my meat but didn’t miss it at all with the...offers on the menu. Also must mention the home made cakes, wow. Incredible selection and so tasty.

This place is our first thought when considering afternoon tea or an easy drop in for a bite to eat. It is always warm, clean and welcoming. The food, teas and coffin are really good. Cakes are home made, and I love their scones and...tea cakes. The decor is worth a visit in itself and everyone is friendly and cheerful. Would advise anyone in the Braintree area to give it ago.More

Visited the tearoom for lunch. Was really disappointed with the menu. No meat of any description, all vegetarian,just cheese and egg based, quite a poor selection. Service was a little slow, but the food was nice. Also not impressed with the cleanliness of the place....It was obvious from the state of the floor it had not been hoovered or mopped recently and our table was dirty. There were only a couple of customers so it wasn't as if they were to busy to keep the place clean. Such a shame.More

On recommendation of a friend I took my daughter to visit the antiques shop at St Peter’s. It was thirsty work walking around all the different rooms so we popped to the cafe for an hot choccie and couldn’t resist the gorgeous selection of cakes....In the cafe we asked one of the very polite staff members where the animals we’d heard of were. The lovely young lady pointed us in the right direction and offered my daughter a bowl of vegetable chopping from the kitchen to feed them with. Feeding the animals was a lovely experience for my daughter for which we were very grateful. The only thing I could say could have improved our experience was to not to have had lunch before we left home… next time!More
