“Researched local tea rooms & we chose this one, so glad we did!! 10/10”
Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

Whilst visiting a local rhs garden I googled local tea room in Chelmsford & several came up, this one had 5/5 excellent reviews so we chose to drive a bit further & visit, so glad we did, excellent range of homemade cakes (delicious) & teas & coffee! This is what I expect from a tea room, it had everything, excellent food, service & ambience, you will not be disappointed! Felt I had to leave a review to let anyone know!

“Lunch time visit”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

Quaint tea room with shopping opportunity situated opposite Writtle Green.

Fresh sandwiches, quiche and a variety of cakes to choose from. Plus a drink selection ranging from tea to wine so there is something for everyone.

Very clean environment with friendly staff.

Opportunity to sit in courtyard during the summer months.

“Celebrating my birthday with afternoon tea”
Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

I hired the tea shop on a Sunday for a family gathering. Jo the owner made everything so nice. Nothing was too much trouble, even my gluten free guest was well catered for. All the food and cakes were delicious and we all waddled out having spent a wonderful, relaxed afternoon in cosy surroundings. I have booked again as we all enjoyed it so much.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

Had a fantastic afternoon tea here with my wife. Selection of homemade cakes was superb. Would highly recommend the scones with clotted cream which were warm straight out the oven. Will definitely be visiting again.
