Marlows Home & Garden

Marlows Home & Garden Centre, Hollow Rd, Bury Saint Edmunds IP32 7AP 01284 763155

They’re getting a name for having one of the best afternoon teas in Suffolk and they’re proud of it. So why not come and experience it yourself with a friend or loved one? Once you’re finished, their fantastic home & garden lifestyle store and garden centre is a joy to browse, with products and displays which are sure to inspire you in your garden this summer.

Sarah Bunting, The Kitchen Cafe manager, tells you about what they offer: “We insist on offering a choice of traditional tea or our luxury loose leaf tea for the most flavoursome cups, available in a range of flavours. Enough tea for topping up is essential, as tea is a drink which accompanies both savoury and sweet foods.

“The food is just as important. We include a choice of hand-cut sandwiches accompanied with a homemade sausage roll, and the all-important fruit scone with clotted cream has to be fresh too. The selection of fancy cakes rounds it all off very sweetly. An afternoon tea should leave one fulfilled, and not wanting more so we make sure the platter is full. Don’t feel the need to eat everything though, as we can provide take-home packs for anything not consumed!”

The Crown at Woodbridge

Thoroughfare, Woodbridge IP12 1AD 01394 384242

Afternoon tea, the most classic of English customs, has been around for many years.

It all started in the 1800’s when Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford who, at the time was a close friend of Queen Victoria and a prominent figure within London society complained of “having that sinking feeling” during the late afternoon. She wanted something small to satisfy her hunger, nothing too large just something to see her through till dinner time. From this want, the afternoon tea ritual was born.

At the Crown, head chef Darran has designed a traditional afternoon tea which includes a sumptuous selection of sandwiches, scones with jam, clotted cream and a naughty but nice indulgence of cakes.

Afternoon tea is £15.50 and for some extra sparkle! You can even add a glass of Fizz £20.50 Available every afternoon 3pm – 5pm, this English tradition is great to share with friends and family
