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.



We are pleased to confirm that the Tiptree Tea Rooms and Jam Shop are all now open for INSIDE and OUTSIDE DINING, RETAIL, and TAKEAWAY (from Monday 17th May). We would love to welcome you in for a special Tiptree cream tea. The Barns at Cressing Temple, The View at Osea Leisure Park, The Lordship at Writtle and Barleylands Tea Room* are all taking limited bookings, please call each tea room direct for their availability. (*Bookings only at Barleylands Tea Room) We are currently not taking bookings at any of the other tea rooms but please pop along when you can and we will seat you as soon as possible. 

Although we will be implementing a smaller menu, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

We are of course adhering to government guidelines to help keep our staff and visitors safe. We look forward to seeing you all soon!


In order to try and help our customers as much as we can during these difficult times, all orders over £19.98 placed on to a UK address will now qualify for free delivery until further notice.

Home delivery orders may take up to 5-7 business days to arrive, not including weekends. During these unprecedented times we are also experiencing an equally unprecedented level of orders. We hope to return to our usual shorter lead time as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.

International Deliveries - Due to the current delays and issues we are experiencing with international parcel deliveries, and to avoid potential disappointment, we recently had to cease all overseas home deliveries. However, we are now pleased to confirm that from Friday 23rd April 2021 we can resume a home delivery service to Canada and Australia in addition to our normal uninterrupted service within the UK.

If you would like to order for Home Delivery in the USA, many of our products are available on or Amazon. Thank you for your co-operation.



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