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 unique here. There is also an extensive display of teapots - good for a game... 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. The place is very clean and the staff are very friendly. I think I will... More

What a lovely little cafe/tearoom we all had a hot drink and a bite to eat. Bacon rolls and cheese scones! One of us wanted well done bacon and this was done to perfection. A good range of teas and coffees! Dog friendly and a nice sweet shop attached 👍👍👍

Walking through the old-fashioned sweet shop to find this quaintly decorated little tearoom was a pleasant experience but sadly, the quality of the food was not. We were tempted by the homemade nut roast so both ordered it with vegetables. When it arrived it was steaming hot - just out of the microwave. The edges of the nut roast were... More

Situated in the middle of Southwold. We are regular visitors to Squires. The restaurant is situated at the rear of a very 'old fashioned' English sweet shop...well worth a visit in itself. However, the food they serve is good English food, meat or fish and three veg. to just a bacon roll if you're looking for a lite bite. The... More

This little cafe could be a gem but needs a lot of love. There is junk everywhere with lots of hand knits hung around the dining room for sale. A old gas fire sits in a lovely old fireplace, the furniture, crockery and cutlery is tired and tatty. the kitchen staff don't seem to realise that everything they say is... More

I'm sorry, but for 2017 I'm not going to be pc or selective of my resonses, I will admit to fault but this review is horrible! The building is old and a little tatty-it's 400 years old & one of the few remaining independent, family run businesses in Southwold-if the business rates aren't reviewed we too may be going thanks...

We didn’t try their tea rooms but the little shop was a blast from the past! Great assortment of old fashioned sweets in jars, sticks of rock and fudge. We came away with lots of small, white paper bags containing quarter pounds of sweets we recall from our childhood.
