Tiptree plans for Tea Room re-openings

4th June 2020

From the 17th June we will be reopening the doors to four Tiptree Tea Rooms for takeaway and retail sales only. The locations that will reopen are: Tiptree, Heybridge Basin, Saffron Walden and Chelmsford.

Our opening hours will be 9am – 4pm, although this may be subject to change, details of which will be posted online. Although we will be implementing a smaller takeaway menu, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

We will of course be adhering to government guidelines on social distancing and safety procedures instore. Following the opening of these four Tiptree Tea Rooms we will review the possibility of further openings and will update our website and social media accordingly with these plans.

 


 

Leaving the Batte-Lay

2nd June 2020

Sadly, the company will not be re-opening the Batte-Lay tea room in Colchester following the Covid closure and the company has exercised the break clause within their sub-lease. Scott Goodfellow, joint Managing Director of Wilkin and Sons said, “It is with regret that we have decided to close our Batte-Lay tea room. Whilst the venue itself is beautiful, we have not had the footfall that we had hoped for. We would like to thank all our customers, the Minories Galleries and Colchester Institute for their support during our tenure. We hope that locals and visitors may find their way to one of our other Tea Rooms across Essex once they are able to open.”

 


 

Tiptree Tea Room Closures

23rd March 2020

It is with great sadness that we have now taken the decision to close all of our Tiptree Tea Rooms and shops. Following government advice, we now believe that it is in the best interests of our staff and customers to remain closed until further notice.

We can’t wait to welcome you back to our Tiptree Tea Rooms once we are able to. The smell of freshly baked scones will fill the air and our friendly staff will be here to greet you with a big smile and a cup of tea.
