I popped into Jesters for a light bite to eat after visiting the castle at Bungay. I chose to eat outdoors as the surroundings were quite pleasant. The staff were friendly and I didn't have to wait too long to have my order to be taken. The food when it arrived was delicious and the price was very reasonable indeed! When I visit Bungay again I'll be sure to visit Jesters again.

Thank you for your kind review. We are so glad you enjoyed your visit and the food. All food is made fresh to order so at busy times can take slightly longer, but we think this makes it taste even better! we hope to see you again very soon.

Jesters is delightfully small and incredibly great value. I pop in there with a friend regularly during the summer and their selection of cakes is great. Proper cake, proper hot chocolate - it doesn't get better than that! It's also around half the price of some of the other cafes in Bungay, so well worth a visit.

Thank Abbie C

My wife and daughter and dog dropped into Jesters this afternoon, for good enough food at a good enough price, but the hospitality left something to be desired. That chap is distinctly not chatty... he seemed to wish he were somewhere else.

Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed the food. we take all feed back seriously and we are sorry that your visit wasn't as enjoyable as it could have been. we shall work on chattiness and hopefully if you return in the future you have a better, chattier experience.

This tea room is tucked away, near the castle. We sat outside as the café was full inside - must be a good sign, and enjoyed tea (£1.05 - a bargain) and scones and jam £1.10 each, and my husband had a hot chocolate which claims to be the best in Bungay. My husband enjoyed it! Service was good, and friendly.

Keith you're doing a grand job, hot chocolate is ok too :-). I do think you need to open another branch in Beccles though.
