Our latest Covid-19 safety guidelines


Table bookings
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. 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. Due to our staff following current track and trace isolation notices, we are currently experiencing higher than anticipated levels of staff absence. Where possible we will remain open but may have to reduce our menu offering or at short notice, may be forced to close. We thank you for your patience and understanding while we work through these challenges.  We hope that we will be in a position to resume normal service very soon. 
Social distancing
We have implemented social distancing in store and one way systems where needed to ensure the safety of our staff and customers.
Safety and Cleaning Measures
We have installed hand sanitising stations at our entrances and near our toilet facilities. ** Face shields and masks will continue to be worn by our serving staff, and shields have been installed at our till points. We have increased the amount of surface cleaning that is undertaken throughout the day.
Face Masks
We politely request to continue to keep our custoemrs and staff safe, we respectufully ask that masks are worn until seated in our Tiptree Jam Shop, Museum, and when ordering takeaway food in our tearooms. Thank you for your cooperation.
