About

The Tiptree Tea Room, Museum & Jam Shop is open seven days a week, closing only for the Christmas break. The Tea Room offers traditional table service in comfortable surroundings. There’s top quality food with a wide range of ‘Tiptree’ products. Wherever possible, we source our ingredients from local suppliers and we prepare and cook the food on the premises.

During the summer months, you are welcome to eat outside on the terrace. It’s a regular sun trap and is the perfect place from which to watch the comings and goings of the factory and the visitor centre.

The tea room serves a range of cooked lunches, sandwiches, hot and cold snacks, and home-baked cakes. Try the special: ‘Tiptree’ Strawberry Conserve with home-made scones and fresh cream, served with the ‘Tiptree’ tea of your choice.
