“Decent Scones at Last”

Small Talk Tearooms
Ranked #103 of 545 Restaurants in Colchester
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 December 2017

It's taken 3 months to find a tearoom that will serve plain scones. Such a delightful place, bringing to mind a childhood spent reading English literature. Everything was beautifully presented, including a tea cup, not a mug for tea. The staff were very friendly, helpful, efficient and accommodating. The kids enjoyed their meals as well, particularly the hot chocolate.

Met up with 3 friends for a snack. Lovely atmosphere, pleasant staff, you are not rushed and beautiful furniture to look at. It was like having tea in someones beautiful ambient home.
Would definitely return time and time again.
Food good as well.
