Sam's cheese on toast! Yum! Old house with steps leading to front door. Tea house with mismatched furniture and crockery. We sat in the window,snug but enough room for our shopping. Quirky, warm and welcoming.

Went here on a brief shopping trip to Bishops Stortford and was told about this place by one of the market stallholders. Glad we went as the staff were very friendly, the service very good and the scones very tasty! Will definitely visit again the next time we visit Stortford.

This is generally a really busy little Cafe but the service is always good and the... More

Nothing special. I like to support local small businesses but am struggling to say why I would go here rather than any other chain coffee shop. I believe the venue further out of town is better..........

Quick service, nice people. I had scrambled egg on toast and a coffee. Both were very nice and reasonably priced. Recommended.

Visited this cafe for a light lunch and a coffee. There was a nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Quality of the food was generally good and the coffee wasn't bad. Overall though it was just basic cafe food at incredibly high prices.

We recently went to Rosey Lea and to be honest, can't say we were impressed! The sausage sandwich (supposedly hot), was just luke warm and not very appetising. They were obviously cooked prior but not heated through enough. I mentioned this when paying and got a bit of a look from the girl in the kitchen area who was preparing... More

I love Rosey Lea, with its friendly staff, tasty food and ever changing menu, it's my favourite place to go. The cakes are lovely, the menu is full of variety, and there's always flexibility if there's something you wish to add or take away from a dish. I loved their afternoon tea, such good value and so much food we... More

Absolutely love Rosey Leas. I generally visit the Wickham Hall Rosey Leas as apposed to the town located one. The service is always good and the food is delicious and there isn't much waiting around at all considering they're always busy. Highly recommended!!
