We couldn't fault this little gem we found in Southwold, so can't understand some reviewers making derogatory remarks about it. We pay an annual visit to the area, and really look forward to our day in Southwold - wouldn't think of choosing anywhere else to...More

Enjoyed the thought of having tea in one of Southwold's oldest tea shops, however had an expectation that the old feeling would be a concept of effort, and creativity and added features rather than the old not cared for feeling I got. The knitting on...More

Stopped here for coffee and bacon roll. Both were very good and an extremely good price, considering we were in Southwold! The downside is that the coffee shop is quite small and they let dogs in and, when we were there, two sets of people...More

I'm glad you enjoyed your bacon roll and coffee, it is what it says in the label and the price reflects this! However I find your comments about dogs rather unfair. The dogs are always well behaved and polite, never rude, unreasonable, demanding things not...More

This is a quirky and small cafe in the back of a sweet shop. There are only around 7 tables and it is quite cramped. There is knitwear hanging from the walls - if you want a cardigan for a new baby you'd get something...More

Thankyou for your review. Obviously I'd like to clarify a few things, seven tables? Yes it is a very small, independent, family run establishment, rapidly disappearing in Southwold. Knitwear? All the wool is donated, the garments knitted by local ladies and every penny from items...More

I loved it here. It is very quirky and has a cosy atmosphere. The food is delicious and is what I would call proper English food. I must recommend the chicken pie! Even if you don't want lunch, they also have a range of cakes....More
