The Tea Guild Award of Excellence in 2006 is one of many accolades for this Tea Shop. In an ideal location by a duck pond in the quiet Essex village this is one of my locals!
I went for my birthday in August and enjoyed some time outside on a table only to move inside when the wasps got too interested in my ciabatta and did not want them to even touch my carrot cake.
A wide array of food available in a warm and cosy environment. I have only been the once but got the feeling they are busy most of the time. Get their early in the day to avoid disappointment as they close at 5pm in the summer and earlier in winter.
