Have eaten here many times in the past& always enjoyed being tucked away in the hidden courtyard garden. However, service today wasn't great. It wasn't particularly busy when I arrived but still struggled to get served. Hoping this is a one off & things will...More

We always have to have a coffee here after coming over by ferry from Southwold. Yes the coffee was a bit more expensive, but the crockery is so pretty, it is so delightful, and we shared a cheese scone too!

Another visit to beautiful Walberswick. It would not be the same if we did not go in to browse their eclectic range of gifts and stop for coffee. Toasted tea cakes and apple and walnut cake. Don't go expecting barista style coffee but it was...More

It's a nice setting in the garden (but note dogs aren't allowed in the tea room itself), but the crab rolls really weren't up to stuff - they were filled with brown meat only, so didn't have the balance of texture and flavour I expected,...More
