We are living and working through unprecedented times. The Covid-19 situation is developing apace. Whilst extremely challenging, we are endeavouring to take a cautious and pragmatic approach to how we best manage the short and long term welfare of our staff, customers, and overall business. At every stage we will continue to follow the latest advice from the UK Government and Public Health England. We very much appreciate the support of all of our staff in helping us to shape our thinking and to generate practical actions to ensure we can continue to help support the effort of feeding the nation.  We have seen a significant change in demand for certain products and we are adjusting our production planning accordingly.  We will continue to adapt with balanced and appropriate measures as circumstances evolve.

Our fruit harvest will be in full swing from early June, while we are currently concerned about the ability of our usual seasonal workers to travel, we are actively considering options for our furloughed colleagues to come and support us in this seasonal effort.



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.

If you have a Tiptree Tea Rooms gift card that’s expiring soon, don’t worry! All gift vouchers due to expire in 2020 will now be extended until the end of 2021. From Tiptree with love.


In order to try and help our customers as much as we can during these difficult times, all orders placed on www.tiptree.com to a UK address will now qualify for free delivery until further notice.


Our friends at Tiptree Patisserie are offering, whilst practicable, a home delivery service in the Essex area.

Stock availability may vary on a  day to day basis.

Please call the Tiptree Patisserie team on 01376 509101 for more information or to place your order today.
