Quite small inside, but on a nice day there is plenty of room outside on the wooden veranda. Nice staff and a nice place to visit after a stroll by the river for a coffee and a snack.

Popped in for a cuppa after a walk along the river and managed to snaffle the last cheese scone - and glad I did! Great atmosphere, very friendly staff, Wi-Fi and Apple Pay! Also a selection of games to play with your cuppa or coffee. There's also a model boating pond outside which can be seen when sitting on the... More

Felt like we were paying a premium to drink average coffee in... More

What a charming and delightful café/tea hut this is. Simple but very appetising menu with daily specials. Ideal location very close to the River Deben. Quite cosy and small inside but plenty of room on the extensive veranda. Recommend early start at lunch time as it can get full quickly especially if there are great specials on the menu. On...

We visit The Tea Hut for breakfast most weekends. The Hut - as the name implies - is small. It is however perfectly formed; cosy, light, clean and welcoming. The breakfasts are delicious and great value - my husband always goes for The Big Hut (I think it's called!) which is the big daddy breakfast. A nice plate full of... More

Popped to this little gem on way home from a camping trip and wasn't disappointed. Food was excellent, service was excellent. 10 out of 10.

A great place to eat and drink in a great, friendly location. A good menu with something for everyone. You always get a warm welcome here from the helpful and happy staff. I only wanted a pot of tea and was warmly welcomed. Try the Hut burger as they looked 101%.

We called in for a snack and wasn't disappointed. Staff were friendly and cheerful on what was a dull and overcast day. The Hut itself was warm and welcoming. Food was freshly prepared and tasty. We each indulged in a slice of cake and were very impressed with the quality. The orange and almond cake was particularly good. All round... More
