Warm welcome, friendly staff. Good coffee, tea combined with delicious scones. All enjoyed in a delightful garden area. Thank you for helping us enjoy a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Thank you for your kind review and appreciate your comments re other local information.
Must say Shepreth does seem a quiet little village however we have two open gardens,
Docwras Manor and the Crossing House Plus Shepreth Wildlife Park and RSPB bird reserve at nearby Fowlmere all worth a visit.

Fresh food, prepared that day or on the spot, served with friendly, chatty courtesy and attention to detail and great charm in spotless rooms within a beautiful English thatched cottage tearoom... bliss!

We are regular visitors to Teacake and really pleased it is continuing to provide excellent salads, interesting and tasty soups, sandwiches, cakes, coffee and tea. Even when under pressure, Chris and Maurice smile. We always have fresh flowers on the table too!

Thank you Lynn and John for such an encouraging review
Little worried about the under pressure comment –hope it does not show!
Yes, we are a very small team and we hate to keep people waiting, but do our best.
Also good to read the details such as the flowers on the table are appreciated – as well as the food.
Hope to see you again soon.
