Had a lovely lunch with the family girls. Couldn't fault service or quality. Only thing I would say is that the afternoon tea which is £7.50pp only consists of 1 sandwich & a scone. There is no hot drink included. After having afternoon teas in other places for similar price it seemed a little pricey as there was no drink... More

We celebrated a special birthday, with a table for two complete with candleabra - cleverly using tealights but able to use "ordinary" candles in evenings - delicious, specially prepared little cakes, fresh, well-filled sandwiches and a very wide assortment of teas, coffees and hot chocolate to select - time to just relax and enjoy!

We stumbled upon this little tearoom where we enjoyed excellent service with a terrific choice of teas and coffees and truly scrumptious food. My husband had a fruit scone with cream and jam, and I opted for a savoury scone with cheese, grapes and chutney. Everything was delicious and attractively presented. Others were enjoying home-made cakes which looked divine -... More

The Scrumptious Tearoom in Great Dunmow, Essex is wonderfully old fashioned taking patrons back to an age when life was less hurried, good service was the order of the day and quality was essential. My wife and I visited twice - once for morning coffee with scones beautifully presented on a real two tier cake stand and secondly for lunch... More

We really enjoyed our afternoon teas and choice of actual teas was quite extensive. The place was very busy and we were lucky to get a table, it was good to see gluten free scones were also available.

I saw the advert on facebook for the new brunch menu on Sunday and it reminded me I hadn't been for a while so a friend and I went and it was gorgeous. I had poached eggs with the works and scrummy tea and she had scrambled eggs with the works with a latte. It was all delicious and just... More

Haven't visited here for about 3 years, when I left it a very good review. However, when I went with friends today, there were only 2 other people in here and it still took 15 mins for the tea and coffee to arrive and another 10 mins for the scone and toast to arrive. There were 3 members of staff... More

Thinking this would be like other tea rooms I've visited, my parents and I decided to have lunch here. First mistake; wrong drink brought out. They quickly changed this however. Second issue; 20 odd minute wait for some toasties to which mine came out burnt. Third; my dad went up to order some more drinks and a slice of cake... More

This is a great venue for a quiet cup of tea in a great spot in the town it's ideal to sit in the window and watch the world go by.

We ordered coffee and a latte, plus a slice of almond and cranberry sponge cake to share between us. Service was good, the coffee good tasting, plus the milk was hot. Opinion was divided on the cake. One thought it was too dry, I am not what might be described as a expert on sponge cakes, and thought it was... More
