TEA ROOM FAQS

When is Afternoon Tea served?

Afternoon Tea is served from 12pm every day but please arrive an hour at least before closing time in order to enjoy the full experience.

Do you accept groups/parties at the tea rooms?

Most of our Tea Rooms accept groups and parties but will depend on the numbers in the party/group as not all of the Tea Rooms have the capacity to take large numbers (please call your desired Tea Room for confirmation and availability)

We do not hire our Tea Rooms for exclusive use during opening times but bookings outside these times will be considered.

What does Afternoon Tea consist of and how much is it?

English Afternoon Tea served on a three tier cake stand with two freshly made sandwiches of your choice, homemade fruit scones, Tiptree Little Scarlet Strawberry preserve and Rodda’s classic Cornish clotted cream. A selection of our miniature individual patisserie items to finish, with your choice of tea or coffee.

Afternoon tea for two people costs £35 and you can upgrade with a 100ml glass of Prosecco each for an extra £10.

Can I book a table in your tea rooms?

Our tea rooms welcome a limited number of reservations, with availability varying on different days. To learn about the specific booking guidelines for each location, please visit the "Booking" section under the Tea Room tab on our website.

While calling us directly is the preferred booking method, please be aware that during busy breakfast and lunch periods, our staff may not be able to answer the phone immediately. Alternatively, you can find the email contact for each tea room in the booking details tab.

Do you sell gift vouchers?

All of our Tea Rooms and Jam Shop sell gift cards. Alternatively you can purchase an e-voucher via our partners at Pressi.co.uk

We are sorry to say that we are no longer able to offer tours of the Factory but we do have the informative Tiptree Jam Museum that you can walk round at your own leisure for free.

Do you have gluten free options available?

The Tea Rooms offer Gluten Free options but it is always preferred to call ahead to ensure they have fresh options at the time of your visit.

How do we know when the tea rooms are operating the times for Summer or Winter?

Our Summer opening times start on 1st March and our Winter opening times start on 1st October. The Tiptree Tea Rooms can close early on exceptional dates, please keep an eye on our website and social media for details. Please call ahead of your visit if you are unsure on the opening times.

Are the tea rooms dog friendly?

Dogs are welcome to sit outside at any of our Tea Rooms, our Essex Rose and Southwold Tea Rooms have the capacity to allow well behaved dogs inside. Unfortunately the Tiptree, Heybridge Basin, Writtle, Saffron Walden, Cressing Temple, Barleylands, Osea and Bond Street tea rooms do not have the capacity to allow dogs inside.

We extend a warm invitation to dogs in our Secret Garden at the Tiptree Tea Room. To ensure a smooth entry, we kindly request that dogs enter the garden through the back gate, instead of accessing it through the Tea Room. (Please note, The Secret Garden will be closed completely from 1st November until the Spring) However there will be limited seating available outside the visitor centre entrance.

Are your tea rooms open on Bank Holidays?

Here at Tiptree, we take your tea time seriously, even on Bank Holidays. You can count on all ten of our inviting tea rooms to be up and running on bank holidays, unless we explicitly mention otherwise. Your relaxation and refreshment matter to us, and we're committed to being there for you on these special days. So mark your calendar, gather your friends and family, and drop by for a serene and satisfying tea experience at our Tiptree tea rooms.

However, please note that all our tea rooms will be shut on Christmas Day. We believe in celebrating the holiday with our loved ones, just like you, and we hope you understand.

The Tiptree tea rooms serve sandwiches, toasties, scones and cakes until 30 minutes before closing. All other lunches will not be served after 3pm.
