I'm never satisfied with the food or service in a pub, restaurant or cafe. I was satisfied with our cream tea at the long melford tea room. (We were going to try 'Jenny Wren's ' in Long Melford country Park but the prices were steep, especially if your chair is on dirt in front of a cargo container in the woods, and we wouldn't have minded the waiter looking like 'catweazle' if he'd have smiled, but he didn't)

Just had lunch, fantastic toasted brie and caramelised onion chutney sandwich with salad and crisps, coffee that tasted like coffee not weak and watery, even tho stuffed had to have cake which was so light and fluffy and so many choices it was difficult to decide but the staff didn't rush us and when we couldn't eat it all put in containers to take with us. It was an awesome experience, real food,real people and a lovely atmosphere can't wait to go back.

A fabulous tea room! Brought my mum for a birthday afternoon tea. The most delicious afternoon tea we have ever had. Even had to bring some home, we were so full. The birthday card for my mum was a lovely thoughtful gesture. We were made to feel so welcome and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and look forward to visiting again. Thank you xxx
